Sunday Sessions at The Holdy!




The Holdy
83 Brighton Road
Glenelg SA

Hi guys! Recently I was lucky enough to attend the Launch of the Sunday Sessions at The Holdy, an iconic pub in the Bay (Glenelg in South Australia for the non-locals), and it was such a chilled-out, fun filled afternoon. Held in the hotel's delightful Beer Garden, the Sunday Sessions are nautical-themed, so the area was decorated with anchors, ring buoys and absolutely no pirates! Being so close to the beach, this is the perfect theme, especially with the weather heating up and the fresh sea air to take in.




The Sessions start from 2pm every Sunday and run right through 'til the end of February, and they boast some amazing drink specials, including $6 Two Suns pints, $7 Grey Goose and $8 Spritz! I tried the Pink Gin, Grand Fizz and Aperol Spritz and all three drinks were refreshing and delicious. I'm sure The Holdy will be adding more Summer cocktails in coming weeks, so be sure to keep an eye on their Instagram, as you don't want to miss out on their Specials!






The food was absolutely on point too. I'm not the biggest fan of seafood, so the fact that I was in heaven over the melt-in-your-mouth salt and pepper squid is a testament to how well it was cooked. We also sampled crispy spring rolls, yummy mini pizza slices and of course the amazing grazing table (which was just for the launch). I enjoyed lunch at The Holdy with my family a few months ago, though, and the meals were fantastic. I remember thinking the kids meal sizes were generous and the garlic bread was super tasty!





The live music added to the chilled out feel for me, which was perfect. I'm sure some people were buzzing with energy, especially watching the talented Simmsy on drums, but I was super content just to catch up with bloggers, chat with friends and enjoy delicious food and cocktails. Speaking music, upcoming guests include Senor Sanchez on November 17, Audioporn on the decks and Simmsy on the drums on December 1, and DJ Souli on November 24 and December 15.





So now you know where your new Summer hang out spot is, Adelaide! Be sure to grab your friends and hit up Sundays Sessions at The Holdy, where you can get your good vibes on and get a little bit Nauti!



Many thanks to Girl About Town for the invitation.

  7. Wow. All the food looked amazing. Glad you got to go. I would need a doggie-bag to take food home as since my mouth cancer can eat very little at one time. And I get messy!!! Thank you for joining Life This Week, next week's optional prompt is 46/51 Gift Idea For Teachers 18/11/19. Sure hope to see you link up again. Denyse.
