What if Adelaide weather lets us down with rain or a heat wave?

Rain, hail or shine RCC will be open. Remember to slip, slap, slop when Adelaide turns up the heat.

In the event of an extreme weather emergency we will consult with our safety supervisor & South Australian Police and, if for the safety of our patrons, it’s recommended we should close, we will do so.

How does the reusable cup system work?

In an effort to become more eco-friendly, RCC 2020 is operating with a reusable cup system.

Any drink purchased in Utopia or Chow Town will come with a $1 deposit charge on the cup given. This is your cup to use for the rest of the night, so please help out the environment and make sure you keep it!

When you leave RCC bring your cup to the ‘Cup Return’ booth in Chow Town (off Victoria Drive entrance). You will receive your deposit back on the card that made the drink payment. If you purchased your drink on Apple Pay, the refund will be processed through the app. See bar/cup return booth staff for more details.

NOTE: YOU WILL ONLY BE REFUNDED THE DEPOSIT THAT WAS CHARGED ON THE CARD/APP (You’ll only be earning points with mother nature for cleaning up after others!)
