Shaun Pattinson to open new ‘juke joint’


Shaun Pattinson, former owner and bartender of influential and award-winning Adelaide bar, Cushdy, is getting back behind the stick just in time for Adelaide’s Fringe festival. when he opens a popup bar called Roses & Rye.

Pattinson is opening a popup bar called Roses & Rye on January 30. He’s taking over a simple retail shop on the East End of Rundle Mall, right in the middle of all the Fringe festival madness, he said.

“It is a true “pop-up” in that it has never been a bar and is a basic retail space,” said Pattinson. “[There’s] no wet area and not a lot of scope to go crazy with cocktails. A few batched ones but canned beer and whiskey will be the order of the day.”

The popup will run for a maximum of eight weeks, he said, and opening “4pm until 1am each day of the Fringe and selected days either side.”


And you might see Pattinson pulling the old Cushdy band back together. “Aside from Monnie [Place] who is off to Perth, I imagine the old gang will be making some appearances. I think it will be that sort of venue where there you never know who you might see there,” he said.

“It should be fun, I’m looking forward to a more party-style atmosphere with no molecular crap in sight.”
