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 live music.

Open 7 Days
12.00noon – 2.30pm
6.00pm – 8.30pm
46 Grote Street, Adelaide
08 8231 5471


The Metro is a massive supporter of live original music with gigs on almost every night. See exciting local talent along with interstate and international acts in the band-room which fronts onto the open-air courtyard at the rear of the hotel.
