This 500-square-metre mini-golf-themed bar has transformed its second-level Pulteney Street address – formerly shared by Lava Adelaide and Madame Josephine’s – into a lavish putt-putt paradise. Some might remember the venue better as a pool lounge. Now, in an accidental throwback to its early-00s identity, customers can tee-off on a snooker-table-themed hole.
Funlab, the company behind Holey Moley, operates similar venues in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. But every course is different. Adelaide’s features two new holes; a tricky 360-degree loop and, on the back nine, a scene dedicated to the Coen Brothers’ cardigan-clad cult hero, Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski. Other challenges include a vintage ski-ball machine, Elvis’s golden shower, The Upside Down and the Iron Throne.
The venue attracts families during the day, but at night it’s strictly adults only. The Caddyshack Bar serves beer, wine and cocktails with names such as Teeyonce Knowles, Long Island Iced Tee – you get the idea – as well as house-made pizza.
