Hotel Indigo Adelaide Markets

SHOP THE NEIGHBOURHOOD THIS CHRISTMAS WITH HOTEL INDIGOJust as no two neighbourhoods are alike, no two Hotel Indigo® properties are designed alike — each is inspired by its unique neighbourhood story and renowned for bringing these tales to life. With boutique hotels in over 120 vibrant neighbourhoods across the globe, Hotel Indigo has been combining stories of the neighbourhood with modern interior design and intimate service since 2004.

In February 2021, Australia's first Hotel Indigo – Hotel Indigo Adelaide Markets – will bring the brand's strength as a storyteller to guests with unique experiences that explore Adelaide's rich cultural history, exceptional local produce, and design cues from South Australia's mining and copper heritage.

To celebrate the upcoming arrival, Hotel Indigo has dived into the heart of the city to curate the ultimate 'Shop the Neighbourhood' Christmas Gift Guide. In the spirit of supporting local businesses, we've crafted this guide as an exploration of the streets and artisans of Adelaide, through the lens of Hotel Indigo's warm and quirky aesthetic.  

Shop the Neighbourhood

For the tea connoisseur:
Where to shopT BAR
T BAR is a neighbourhood institution; a proud local family owned and operated business based in Adelaide. Their heritage harks back to the family's monarch as their mum, Stella, would infuse and share tea around her 70's retro laminate kitchen table. Today, T BAR offers around 120 blends and varieties using the finest leaves direct from growers in both loose-leaf and 100% plastic-free, bio-degradable teabags.

Hotel Indigo's pick: Shop at T BAR HQ in Torrensville or explore their extensive tea library online. For added extravagance, check out the hampers and tea boxes from $26.95 to $149.00 to gift a selection of brews and cute gifts. The 'Huge Tea Hamper' is complete with a Gracie Grey tea pot and cup, T BAR South Australian made chai latte syrup and 12 varieties of signature favourite teas. Added bonus? T BAR will ship internationally for a taste of Adelaide abroad!


For the gin-lover:
Where to shop: Kangaroo Island Spirits

It was one of the hardest hit regions during Australia's bushfire crisis, before enduring further devastation throughout COVID. If there was ever a time for festive cheer, it's now! The multi-award-winning Kangaroo Island Spirits (KIS) is a gin-producer based in South Australia's Kangaroo Island and has reopened its iconic cellar door including experiences such as the 2-hour KIS Cocktail Masterclass from $98.00.

Established by locals Jon and Sarah Lark, they say the KIS team is proudly “in it for the character of the KIS lifestyle, the passion for inclusion (which includes sharing ideas) and being creative with botanicals.” Hotel Indigo's pick: You'll find their vivid passion throughout the entire gin range, with special packages perfect for Christmas including the KISMAS 5 pack for $200.00 or a KIS gift card for friends and family to choose their favourites.

Section28 Artisan Cheeses is a small business and the iconic home of Alpine-style cheese, using the classic traditions of European cheesemakers and the very best milk from the Adelaide Hills.
