The Adelaidian is South Australia’s go-to website for all the latest reviews in food, entertainment and all the wild and wonderful in-between. The dynamic duo behind the lifestyle website is media and journalism university students Kristen Byass and Melanie Zahorujko, who you will find swapping books for VIP invitations within Adelaide’s rapidly growing food, fashion and entertainment scene. Forever on the run, and forever making us feel green with envy, The Adelaidian offers a carefully curated Instagram account filled with delicious food, runways shows and must-see events and in-depth reviews on an eye-catching website.
So what makes The Adelaidian stand out from a sea of emerging blogs and websites, very real, ‘REAL-TIME’ reviews on THE places to see and visit in Adelaide. Whether you are a local or passing through, Kristen and Mel are there to keep you updated on the places you should be visiting before everybody else does. With useful reviews written by real writers, the website offers quality content for those who like to do their research before they visit a city.
As MUSQ customers, (we like to keep Kristen and Mel looking refreshed and vibrant at all times, despite a hectic schedule) and local talent showing that Adelaide is anything but a sleepy town, we spoke ‘must visit’ places with the duo….
For an epic breakfast: Argo for the smoothie bowls and extensive breakfast options of all kinds.
For the best coffee: Bar 9 for their constantly rotating beans and experimental coffee making techniques.
For a spot of shopping: Rundle Mall and Rundle Street, for BNKR, TuYu and all the other cute little boutiques. For a local label like no other: Harvey the Label, because her clean aesthetic and original cutouts and lines make the clothes staples in your wardrobe that you can wear so many ways.
For a healthy lunch: Soonta for their salad bowls.
For a good facial: Cocoon Spa & Wellness for the incredible services and relaxing, candle-lit atmosphere.
For perfect nails: Burnside Nails and Spa
For an active outing: Mount Lofty has unbeatable views.
For fine dining: Coal Cellar and Grill
For a relaxed feed: Always keen to pop into Bread and Bone for a burger or hotdog! Conveniently located above Maybe Mae if we’re feeling like a drink afterwards
For a decedent dessert: We can’t wait for 50sixone to open up, their mega smoothies look like heaven on earth!
For cocktails with a view: 2kw without a doubt
For a night out dancing: Hacienda is the latest and greatest on Adelaide’s club scene – we love how it incorporates the best of both worlds with both a nightclub setting and small bar setting!
For live music: Fat Controller is just killing it.
For a good drop of wine: The Henry Austin, for their extensive wine cellar and weekly Friday evening tastings.
For something a little different: The fit-out and vibe of BRKLYN are unlike anywhere else in Adelaide; it’s like stepping into a different city altogether!
For a comfortable stay: Longview Vineyard, for the affordable and delicious restaurant and modern, cozy rooms.
For a perfect Sunday outing: If we could escape to Bird in Hand every Sunday, we definitely would.
For those miserable winter days: We hear alpine winter village is launching soon… complete with an ice-skating rink and magical Christmas vibes, we dare say it will be our new favourite winter destination.
