Welcome to The Hotel Metropolitan

Built in 1883, the iconic Hotel Metropolitan has been trading as a pub ever since. It is listed on the South Australian State Heritage Register

Located on Grote Street, the Metropolitan is in the centre of Adelaide next to Her Majesty’s Theatre and opposite Adelaide Central Markets. Renovations have left the hotel with a traditional pub feel in a contemporary setting offering food, gaming, accommodation and entertainment
