A mainstay at Adelaide Airport in Australia for more than 16 years, Cooper’s Alehouse has reopened with a refurbished design and is ready to welcome the steady increase of travelers now passing through the airport.

The classic pub concept features live televised sports, all-day breakfast, traditional pub snacks, as well as shared platters for all palates.

“It’s great to see the hard work and years of planning coming to fruition,” said Mark Young, managing director of Adelaide Airport. “The Cooper’s Alehouse refurbishment looks amazing, and my congratulations to Cooper’s and leading airport food service and retail company Delaware North for the excellent result.”

The refreshed Cooper’s is part of a $200 million overhaul of the airport terminal, which will grow by more than 80% and feature an array of revamped restaurant and retail spaces.

“The Cooper’s Airport Alehouse has been a popular destination since it opened at Adelaide Airport in 2005, providing the ideal place for passengers to relax while enjoying a familiar South Australian product,” said Cam Pearce, Cooper’s marketing and innovation director.

The refurbished Cooper’s Alehouse is situated in a prominent location in front of gates 19 and 20 in the airport terminal. It sports a new look but has retained some features from the original bar, including large mirrors with gold-leaf artwork and restored wooden benches.

“Delaware North is excited to be part of Adelaide Airport’s newly expanded retail and dining precinct in Terminal 1,” said Gary Brown, managing director for Delaware North in Australia. “We are pleased to have refurbished the iconic Cooper’s Alehouse, which will further enhance our guests’ experiences at this incredible venue with a new terrace providing stunning views of the Adelaide Hills. We are immensely proud of our 25-plus year partnership with Adelaide Airport and look forward to continued success working together.”
