Tivoli Hotel (including former Ballroom)

261-269 Pirie Street ADELAIDE

The Tivoli Hotel is indicative of the provision and increasing need for hotel accommodation in the early years of Adelaide's development. More significantly, the hotel retains one of the very few remaining large rooms which were attached to many 1850s and 1860s hotels in South Australia which were used as theatres or assembly rooms. These spaces were provided at hotels before town halls, institute halls and later purpose-built theatres were constructed, and represent the provision of social facilities in the young colony. The Tivoli's ballroom is believed to be one of the last remaining of its kind both in the City of Adelaide and throughout the state. (Register Committee Agenda Paper 22/09/2010)
