Once part of Adelaide’s Football Park Stadium, the Mosaic is a light-drenched bar that takes pub dining to the next level.
The West Lakes site has been welcoming Aussie football fans for the last 27 years, although now that the stadium has permanently closed, the building has undergone adaptive reuse, transforming it into a food-focused ‘hotel’ – so named to set it apart from Adelaide’s other pubs.
Local architecture practice Studio Nine oversaw the interiors and the former stadium’s conversion from a dark building with few windows into the bright bar space it is today. Exposed brick, tiled floors and bright green benches all lend Mosaic a distinctly pubby atmosphere, albeit with a touch more polish than your local boozer.
Outdoor dining is prioritised at the Adelaide restaurant, which has an outside terrace designed to be used all-year-round, as well as a wood-fired pizza oven. Guests can also pick from Mosaic’s menu of burgers, battered fish, pork belly and schnitzel – before retiring, with full bellies, to its vast gaming room.
