QT set to open hotel in Adelaide, South Australia

by James Wilkinson

Event Hospitality and Entertainment Limited has announced it has entered into a management agreement for its newest QT hotel to be located in Adelaide at 62 Currie St in the heart of the CBD.

This will be the 11th QT hotel in the group and QT’s first introduction to South Australia, joining the growing portfolio of QT properties across Australia and New Zealand.

A design-led hotel with a luxurious and quirky flair, complemented by a distinctive signature service, QT’s South Australian foray will be Adelaide’s first branded lifestyle hotel, bringing a unique offering to the market.

QT’s focus on creating award winning bars and restaurants ensures it is loved by travellers and locals alike. QT Adelaide will be no exception, with bold new QT signature dining concepts and a sweeping rooftop bar, designed to reflect and complement the local community.

Property development and investment group Axiom Properties Limited announced a Joint Venture with the site’s owner Auspac Networks Pty Ltd in June 2017 to deliver a unique mixed-use offering to Adelaide’s premier entertainment precinct, known for its hip small bars and exceptional restaurants.

The $180 million development will incorporate QT’s latest hotel offering of exciting food and bar offerings and feature 200 guest rooms and extensive conferencing and events facilities, unlike anything seen before in Adelaide.

The development will also incorporate 10 levels of unique office space designed for a new generation of employers and employees embodying the best of “work, stay, play” philosophies.

Event Hospitality and Entertainment Limited CEO, Jane Hastings, said: “We are excited to bring South Australia its very first QT hotel, a key Australian market that has been a missing piece of our portfolio.”

At the creative helm of QT Adelaide is longstanding QT collaborator, interior designer Nic Graham. Graham will create the interiors for a myriad of public spaces and food and beverage outlets within the hotel, offering thoughtfully designed areas for locals and visitors to come together.

The QT group of hotels is on a strong growth trajectory, with QT Queenstown opening in December 2017 and QT Perth in July 2018. QT Auckland is scheduled to open in 2020, followed by QT Parramatta and QT Adelaide in 2021.
