Australia's first Hotel Indigo opened in Adelaide on 1 March 2021
IHG Hotels & Resorts' boutique lifestyle brand, Hotel Indigo, debuted in Australia with the opening of Hotel Indigo Adelaide Markets on 1 March. The much-anticipated 145-room hotel with its intriguing design features, deep connections to the neighbourhood and exemplary culinary offerings is set to become a vibrant cultural hub for locals and visitors, a hallmark of other Hotel Indigo properties around the world.
Located next to the lively Adelaide Central Market, the hotel will champion local producers in its two restaurants - Market & Meander Eatery and Bar, as well as rooftop raw food bar, Merrymaker which will be the highest rooftop bar in Adelaide.
Housed on the site of a former textile factory, the property's “Raw and Refined” design ethos will celebrate the neighbourhood's commercial past with an exciting blend of heritage-listed and modern architecture as well as eye-catching contemporary design features.
The hotel's public spaces will feature striking brick archways mimicking those in Adelaide Central Market, colourful street art-inspired murals by acclaimed Australian collage artists including Tristan Kerr and an exposed terracotta brick feature wall etched with intriguing neighbourhood references such as “Six o'clock Swill” and “Mad March” – the name given to Festival month in the city.
Continuing that cultural tribute, exclusive Adelaide Festival-inspired poster art will adorn corridors and rooms, while a rotating selection of artworks will create an engaging, ever-changing backdrop in public spaces.
