Breaking The Rules: The Advertiser Catches Up With Simone Douglas

Adelaide – It was a sleepy Tuesday morning when Cameron England and Brenton Edwards of the Advertiser stopped by The Duke of Brunswick to catch up with publican, Simone Douglas to check in on how things were going after just over a year of operation.

While The Duke of Brunswick has been known by the local community as an almost iconic traditional bar, recent years were not altogether that kind to the venue.  And whilst sitting down with Simone earlier this week, it was obvious what a remarkable change The Duke of Brunswick has undergone in such a short period of time.

“It’s fantastic the support we’ve received from the community who have really helped with encouragement, patronage and by making The Duke of Brunswick an inviting ‘Seriously Social’ place for everyone,” said Simone. Referencing the dramatic turn-around, she continued “by making it the type of place I would like to go to, I took the opportunity to transform the idea of what a traditional bar is and become a welcoming environment for everyone. From the atmosphere to the food, I think we’ve done a pretty remarkable job!”

Noting the wide bar selection and The Duke of Brunswick’s strong local connection, Cameron mentioned sampling whiskey from the Rochfort Distillery, a nearby personal favourite of his.

“So we took a trip out to Victor, and have now added to our hand-picked selection of spirits with Rochfort, an amazing and award-winning local brand.”

As a traditional iconic destination for so many in the Adelaide area, The Duke of Brunswick Hotel is proud to promote local talent, business and brands as well as become a preferred dining establishment for the coeliac community.

As Adelaide’s first and only completely gluten-free full dining establishment is rewarding for all patrons looking for healthy eating options.

Now just over one year later, The Duke of Brunswick Hotel has fully transformed from a sleepy traditional bar to an exciting destination many people in the community have been searching for.

Wrapping things up while the bristle of the bar began to swing into action, Cameron’s meeting with Simone seemed typical of many encounters shared at the venue. A place where people can come together, discuss and share ideas in a friendly environment and then come away having experienced something new and beneficial for all.
