Rhino Room

Adelaide institution, 2 unique event spaces & outdoor areas. BYO catering allowed.

For more than 20 years, Rhino Room has proven to be a popular Adelaide venue to celebrate a birthday, engagement, farewell party, graduation or host corporate events.

Based in the heart of Adelaide’s CBD and offering two unique event spaces (Level 1 or Rhino Basement) each including its own licensed outdoor area, Rhino Room easily accommodates a wide range of function options.

Level 1 offers a front bar with booth seating that leads into the main event space comprising a comprehensive main bar, huge dance floor and stage. Level 1 events can enjoy use of our licensed outdoor area along Pirie Street.

Rhino Basement is accessed via Hyde Street. Having undergone renovations, the bar and event space offers cosy booth seating an adjoining room with dance floor and gorgeous outdoor licensed area under the Hyde Street vines.

An added bonus of holding your event with us is our self-catering option where we encourage you to bring in your own food, engage a caterer or, connect with one of our preferred catering contacts. We leave it to you to arrange what best suits your budget while we specialise on ensuring the venue and drinks are perfect for your event.

If you elect to put on a bar tab you can choose to offer your guests complimentary or subsidised drinks.  Bar tabs can be used to offer beer, wine, cider and soft drinks or you’re welcome to add spirits and cocktails. Ultimately, we work with you to develop a beverage menu that works for your budget and personal tastes.

Bring a playlist and connect to our system or if you’d prefer we can coordinate a DJ for you. Alternatively, if you already know one, we can provide the equipment for them to use on the night.

We enjoy supporting our clients to achieve their specific event vision. With over 20 years of venue management, we have a flexible approach to compliment a host’s individual requirements for events of all sizes from outrageous parties to more intimate soirees. We welcome inquiries to discuss what you’re looking for so we can best tailor our offers to your budget and requirements.
