Eos by SkyCity, is a 5-Star luxury hotel, with four new restaurants and two new bars, a range of the most contemporary gaming products and the most stunning VIP gaming rooms available in Australia all with a breathtaking views of the Riverbank.
It will be a watershed moment for the state, leaving no doubt that SkyCity is Adelaide’s premier destination for entertainment.
The Adelaide Casino has been an important part of South Australia’s fabric since December 1985, almost 35 years ago to the day, when Premier John Bannon launched the building with a game of two-up to mark the opening of South Australia’s first casino.
At a cost of $30 million, Adelaide’s grand railway station was revolutionised. Fast forward to July 2017, and SkyCity committed $330 million to proceed with plans to expand on the Festival Plaza and form part of the rejuvenation of the Riverbank Precinct, surrounded by the iconic revamped Adelaide Oval, Festival Centre and Convention Centre.
SkyCity Adelaide General Manager, David Christian, said that as one of the state’s largest private employers, he’s excited about the future and the role SkyCity will play in supporting tourism, local artisans and jobs for South Australians.
“When we designed the new SkyCity Adelaide, which includes the stunning new expansion as well as a complete refurbishment of the heritage building, front of mind was to not only cater for the tourism market by showcasing South Australian producers and suppliers, but also to provide a world-class precinct where all South Australians feel excited to visit and proud to call their own.
“I feel a sense of pride in what SkyCity has achieved since taking ownership 20 years ago. In just the past 12 months SkyCity Adelaide has supported more than 700 local suppliers and employed an extra 500 staff, as well as producing 1,000 construction jobs for the duration of the project.”
Boasting 270 degree-views of the city, Adelaide Hills, River Torrens and coast, SkyCity is a revolutionised tourism experience unlike anything South Australia has ever seen before.
Premier Steven Marshall said he’s excited to give tourists more reasons to visit.
“There is no doubt the new SkyCity is going to be a huge drawcard for our State – it will significantly bolster South Australia’s entertainment and tourism industry.”
Jodi Brown, General Manager of Eos by SkyCity’s 120-room 5-Star luxury hotel, says the name Eos has even more significance following a challenging period for hotel operators.
“Named after the Greek Goddess of Dawn, Eos is an embodiment of optimism. We look forward to bringing a new, extraordinary realm of luxury guest experience to Adelaide, where we will deliver a personalised approach, underpinned by indulgent experiences.”
Eos by SkyCity, as well as the broader SkyCity expansion project, showcases more than $900,000 worth of local artwork. With the curation overseen by former AGSA Chair, Tracey Whiting, the artwork has been selected to integrate and complement the hotel’s subtle, modern aesthetic, with the colours, textures and tones a key interior design element.
The collection features more than 900 pieces from a diverse group of 40 contemporary South Australian artists featured throughout not just Eos, but also the new restaurants and bars, including Sol Bar and Restaurant.
Sol, the Latin term for sun, is a revolutionary take on a rooftop bar and restaurant for South Australia, offering an unforgettable dining experience from breakfast through to dinner.
SkyCity also recently announced restaurants ITL and Lucky Noodle, which along with the Westward bar will have access to SkyCity’s 7,500 bottle master cellar, boasting a focus on South Australian wines, as well as Huami and Conference and Events facilities, set to open in 2021.
While 2020 has been a tough year, SkyCity is thrilled to be opening this stunning entertainment establishment at a critical time. SkyCity Adelaide will help underpin the State’s drive to be the most desirable destination, grow the future of South Australians, and deliver guests a world-class experience.
