The Portside Tavern

Lounge Bar


The Portside Tavern is the home of live entertainment in the Mid North. Every Friday night our Lounge Bar plays host to live music featuring very talented local musicians and DJs.

Most Saturday nights we follow up with further local acts that always draw a happy fun loving crowd. The Portside Tavern has a fabulous reputation as the place to be.

Meetings & Happy Hour

Our Lounge Bar is the perfect mixture of social but business, comfy but professional. Come in the next time you need a quiet place to have a small meeting with business partners or clients. We make barista coffees fresh on site and our range of cakes are unrivalled. We also have happy hour from 4pm to 7pm with complimentary finger food on Fridays. Being in the heart of the commercial precinct we have tried to look after those who work close by, so come in and enjoy a cold beer or a glass of the finest red with your work colleagues.

Cocktail Club

The newest addition to our Lounge Bar is our range of cocktails, all created by our very own staff. A delicious blend of fresh fruit and the best alcohol and mixers you will want to try them all. With the introduction of our new cocktail range, we have also introduced the Cocktail Club. The Cocktail Club rewards those that keep coming back, grab a loyalty card from one our friendly Lounge Bar staff. Produce it every time you order yourself a cocktail and the tenth cocktail is on us!

Coffee Club

The Lounge Bar isn’t just about Port Pirie’s coldest drinks and live sport, it’s also about freshly made, barista coffee. Help yourself to a delicious fresh coffee, just the way you like it, and grab yourself a slice of one of the many cakes we always have many on display. If you’re still not impressed we’ve got a range of cold options including Iced Coffees, Milkshakes and if you dare… FREAKSHAKES.

We’re also the home of ultra healthy food / snack options in Port Pirie as well. We have a large range of RAW GLUTEN FREE VEGAN REFINED SUGAR FREE PALEO snacks that will impress the most fussiest in you’re group.

Club Clippers

In June 2019 we reopened the highly successful Club Clippers Nightclub. Once a month you will be treated to Australia’s most talented DJs including Brooklyn, Brynny, Nat Sax, Courtney Mills just to name a few on our current roster. Follow the Club Clippers Facebook page for all details.

Never's - Craft & Gin Bar​

Looking for that special but quirky place to chill out with friends. You have just found it!

“Never Have I Ever” – CRAFT & GIN BAR – Opened on 1st July 2019

Our original creation was in recognition of Mr Mavromatis who worked for 60 years as a Barber in the Portside Tavern. His community service was acknowledged with an OAM posthumously. With a respectful twist we have honoured the past and added a touch of Melbourne by creating a Craft and Gin Bar. Don’t forget to ask about the doors on the ceiling!

You can enjoy our large range of craft beers such as Pirate Life, Big Shed, Panhead and we specialise in supporting local brewers whom are taking the market by storm Watsacowie and Yorke Premium.

The Gin Cocktails are an absolute indulgence. Spoil yourself!
