Hades Hula House - Semaphore

Visit: 5 Nov 2022

On a one day trip to Adelaide to look at a pinball machine for my kids (it was the Stranger Things pinball and yes I did end up purchasing it!) so I made the most of my time here by visiting the South Australian museum which has a famous pacific gallery but also Adelaide’s only tiki bar - Hades Hula House. This bar is still open (this site says closed but they just moved). It’s a pretty big space and given I was flying I had a meal and some drinks. Even better, I bought a souvenir mug and scored lots of coasters and swizzles so this bar definitely looks after the tiki fans that visit.

Hades Hula House - Semaphore bar & restaurant – Semaphore, South Australia, Australia

Opened in February of 2018.

From their website:

"Hades Hula House is Adelaide's Premier tiki bar and restaurant. Exotic flavours and liquid libations await those who dare!

Owned by entrepreneur and powerhouse Abby Roennfeldt 'Just Abby', Hades Hula House was birthed to life from her love of tiki culture and good drinks. Never one to shy away from the limelight Abby and her team of hospitality guns have been pushing this small bar from strength to strength. This beachside hideout boasts impressive breakfast and dinner menus, as well as an in-house cocktail list featuring over 20 boutique classic and modern takes on tiki, with some Hades exclusives thrown in.

From the decor to the drinks, meals, music, and service, this slice of new-built history has something for everyone. People come to Hades to get away. If only for a few hours they can be anywhere their Polynesian dreams desire. The bar is warm and littered with palm trees, carvings, bamboo and vintage trinkets."

*NOTE: This location for Hades Hula House closed its doors for good on Saturday May 28th, 2022. They re-opened on Friday, August 12, 2022 with an opening luau at their new home at 128 Hindley Street, Adelaide 5000.
