New BBQ experience and event space for Adelaide
 
Weber Barbecues Australia has announced Australia’s first Grill Academy, located in the eastern corner of Adelaide. As well as a space for corporate and private events with views across Victoria Park to the city, the academy offers a range of interactive and educational experiences for groups.
 
Planners can get excited about a ‘Hands on Tongs’ corporate experience; the option of fully-catered live barbecue events; and full audio-visual facilities.
 
The $1.5 million development includes a 120 sqm all-weather balcony complete with the full range of Weber barbecues; an indoor space with modern finishes and bifold glass doors; a al fresco area replete with a full bar and catering facilities; and a worldwide cellar.
 
Commenting on the launch, Jakki Govan from Clockwise Consulting, who is representing the Weber Grill Academy, said: “The Weber Grill Academy has certainly sparked the interest and enthusiasm of association and corporate event planners, with enquiries being commensurate with the external signage being erected on the building.
 
“Already, a number of bookings for groups from 12-90 have been secured and given the agility of the venue’s offering, each event remains quite unique for hosts and their guests.”
