2KW - a new rooftop restaurant #2KW #restaurant #food #wine

One of the newer bar and restaurants to open in Adelaide is 2KW.  The rooftop establishment sits 8 floors up, on  the corner of King William Street and North Terrace.

The building, formerly the Bank of NSW and then Westpac, was designed in the modern art deco style by Philip Claridge, Colin Hassell and Jack Hobbs McConnell in 1939.  It was completed in 1942,  during the difficult period of the 2nd World War.

Adelaide Oval, River Torrens and the rooftops of the Festival Centre.

In today's post there are a few photos of the views from the rooftop bar. I'll post on the restaurant later.

The photos had to be taken through a 3 metre tall sheet of glass at night, so reflections are part of the deal.

These lambswool throws certainly help on a chilly night.

Cosy Cabanas sit up to 10

The rooftop bar is distinctive from, but compliments the many new laneway and basement bars that have opened across Adelaide in the past couple of years.  The views are great over the low-rise historic buildings that line North Terrace. And during the day you can see across Adelaide to the sea.  Sunsets should be pretty special.  I predict we'll see a few more rooftop bars open up in the coming years.
