About Studio 99
History – McColl’s Hardware Foundry
In 1895 James Ramsay McColl located his business hardware and brass foundry business at 99 Lipson Street Port Adelaide where it was operated by his family as a Coppersmith/Hardware business. During this time he was responsible for manufacturing, plumbing and pipe work in this building for many earlier projects in South Australia such as the boilers for the Parkside Asylum 1902 and pipework for the water supply to Broken Hill
Studio 99 Art and Whisky is hidden down the side lane behind the original McColl’s Hardware located at 99 Lipson Street in the Port. It is housed in the old brass foundry building and offers a small intimate bar where you can submerge yourself in the yesteryear. If you are looking for somewhere where you can have a quiet conversation or pre-dinner cocktails you won’t be disappointed.
You will find the best of single malt and blended whisky’s from many countries around the world. If you’re not really a whisky drinker we may be able to convert you with one of the many cocktails.
Failing that we have a small exclusive range of red and white wines, vodka, gin, and beers for the die-hards.
The studio is available exhibitions, art classes, book launches, writer’s evenings, private functions and group bookings.
