The Holdy Sunday Sessions Launch

We’re well and truly in the swing of spring and summer is right around the corner. What better way to spend these warmer weekends than with a “nauti” Sunday Session at The Holdy.

Located just a short stroll away from Glenelg’s beloved bay, The Holdy is a long time crowd-favourite destination all year round with their trivia nights, street bar food specials and live music pumping all weekend, every weekend. Embracing their nautical-theme just in time for summer, The Holdy officially kicked off the launch of their annual summer Sunday Sessions on Sunday 3 November with an afternoon of “nauti” shenanigans.

The indoors meets the outdoors in The Holdy’s nautical-themed beer garden, offering high bar tables and stools for larger group gatherings as well as cozy couches and coffee tables for more more intimate catch ups. Gone are the days of dining in dingy beer gardens: with vibrant green plant walls, wooden accents and vintage fairy lights strung beneath the skylights, The Holdy’s beer garden is a light, airy and roomy slice of summer bliss.

The balmy afternoon air was filled with the rhythmic tropical house tunes of DJ Audioporn on the decks and Simmsy who drummed to his heart’s content on percussion.

To celebrate the launch in spectacular nautical style, guests were treated to a beautifully presented grazing table packed with fresh seasonal fruits, a variety of cheeses, meats, crackers and much more.


The outdoor mini bar was serving up a selection of tropical-themed spritzers and cocktails, as well as everyone’s beer, wine and spirit old faithfuls. Each Sunday Session, drinks specials will include $6 Two Suns beer pints, $7 Grey Goose vodkas and $8 spritzers!

The Le Grand Fizz was a crowd favourite, combining Grey Goose vodka with the summery flavours of elderflower soda and lime to create a tropical concoction perfect for those Sunday scorchers that lie just around the corner.
