In the 1990s, The Coffee Pot (James Place, Adelaide) was known more for its clientele than its coffee, but these days, it’s all about the fun and nostalgia.

DSC00544Like goths to a flame, the upstairs cafe in the city would fill with black haired and clothed patrons each night.

Many years later, and under new management, The Coffee Pot has kept its uniquely quirky characteristics, but feels a lot more friendly.

From ‘Pov Tin Thursdays’ (hair metal,  $4 beer/$5Bourbon and Vodka), ‘Rad n 80s’ Fridays *(nonstop 80’s music and films) to every second Saturday Live Comedy with Adelaide’s best comedians, there are many, many reasons to drop in and see Bryan and the guys at The Coffee Pot.

This year, on the last Wednesday of every month, they had ‘Kate Bush Wednesdays’ – what’s not to love about this place?

Non stop Kate Bush vinyl records through hard rubbish speakers and rare footage on the big screen? We want more of that!

DSC00782If that’s not fantastic enough for you, how about ‘Spoke ‘n’ Slurred’ open mic nights on the last Sunday of every month with a featured reader and a Dymocks Raffle from 5pm?
For theatre lovers, the Pot gang offered ‘SOAP’, an improvised dramedy on the fourth Thursday of every month for the bargain price of $10, or $5 if you like them on Facebook.
Keeping with the tradition of the ghosts of Coffee Pot past, they offered’Black Coffee’, an ’80s goth night at the end of this year.
DSC00683Whatever 2016 has in store for Coffee Pot punters, it’s bound to be great, they’re all about entertainment and fun, and they are some of the friendliest guys in the biz.
