from the big blue façade to the pinball machines upstairs, there’s no venue like it in adelaide.

local, national and international live acts all rock up the nights at this former theatre.
the original design features of the venue make it an acoustic gem.

jive’s big blue building knows a thing or two about reinvention, and about possessing a colourful, whirling history. this place was once a theatre and later became the legendary toucan nightclub in the 70’s. it then underwent 2 decades of bewildering changes: reborn as a bar, nightclub, risqué strip joint, and a comedy club. today, Jive is a live music venue for local, national and international acts. It’s original theatre design elements give it a huge advantage over many other band performance venues; making the space an acoustic winner with plenty of character. the stage stands before the sunken dance floor, so drinkers can have clear sight lines from the bar level. for a different perspective, head to the upper level & check out the stage action from the balcony.

most afternoons, jive exudes a chilled out lounge vibe and caters to university students looking for post-study drinks, pool and foosball. the bar is well stocked and much effort has gone into making sure the range of wines and spirits is high in quantity, rich in quality.

the décor, staff & music make jive a truly welcoming, cosy & entertaining night (or afternoon) out!
