With the opening of slick community venues, a handful of new wine bars and an expanding calendar of art exhibitions and events, Norwood’s nightlife continues to grow. The area’s historic pubs are moving with the times, embracing the espresso martini and acoustic musicians.
Amateur acting groups, professional theatre companies, writing workshops and a strong arts community make Norwood attractive for the creative and culturally savvy. There are open mic nights, intimate live music shows and orchestral groups aplenty, and a thriving evening performance schedule, particularly over the warmer months.
During the SANFL season, the bright lights of Norwood Oval attract a steady stream of footy fans, while the local cinema, ice creameries and burger joints are packed out by families year-round.
