Luma Restaurant and Bar opens in Playford Hotel

Luma Restaurant and Bar, the centre-piece of the multi-million dollar upgrade of Adelaide’s iconic Playford Hotel, is open for business. 

Luma, meaning light from the Latin lumen, is a nod to the elegant Art Nouveau style for which the South Australian, family-owned hotel is famed. Coupled with a modern twist that is both energetic and aspirational, Luma extends an invitation to both local communities and international guests throughout the day and night.

The pinnacle of this exciting new hospitality offering is a must-see magnificent handcrafted lighting sculpture. The unmissable one-off art piece sets the tone with perfect luminosity over the beautiful bar – an original feature piece of the venue, as well as the newly installed long tables spanning its massive columns and cosy booths. 

Luma’s restaurant is overseen by award-winning Executive Chef Kevin Martel. His fabulous share-inspired menu is a love note to European dining. Its bold flavours, colours and locally sourced organic ingredients, are prepared using both classic techniques and interpretive cooking methods.

Luma is an incredible next step in the evolution of South Australia’s world-leading dining scene, bringing craftsmanship, entertainment and quality to the guest experience. The award-winning team look forward to welcoming guests with a level of service befitting this truly inspiring culinary adventure.

“I am genuinely excited by Luma and the culinary journey we have in store for our guests which will showcase the best of South Australian produce. The Luma experience will be something special and unforgettably distinctive, energetic and inspiring,” says Executive Chef, Kevin Martel.
