The Tower Hotel gets a makeover

The Tower Hotel on Magill Rd has been around since 1840 but this old gal has recently had a makeover proving that age doesn't matter. The multi million dollar facelift breathes new life to the Tower transforming this iconic pub into a modern day drinking hole for the younger crowd and those who are young at heart.


Owner, Greg Maitland, says "The redevelopment caters for all members of the community. Previously, the Tower has attracted an older demographic, so we wanted to make sure we offered something that appeals to everyone. We’re right across the road from Uni SA’s Magill campus, so we wanted to create a fresh, go-to destination for students and young people.”


Tempting Palates were invited to the official launch where guests mingled in the dynamic new beer garden snacking on pub favourites of mini burgers and platters of crispy calamari. The menu has been revamped to include new healthy options and we tried the super tasty Sprouting Super Salad which caters to vegetarian or vegan foodies.



A new feature at The Tower is the cinema area seating up to 40 kids. This is the perfect solution for parents who want a night out for dinner but want to keep the kids entertained. There's even popcorn, choc tops or fairy floss on offer with a large selection of family friendly movies.

The Tower Hotel surprised us! Being our first time and having no expectations, we found ourselves loving this "old come new again" local pub. The outdoor area is a summer time must visit destination. On this night it was perfect weather to sit outside, sip on a cocktail, have a bite to eat and chat with friends. Put this pub on your to do list!
