Nando's has closed on Hindley Street.

Sushi Hub is opening a second mall shopfront where the convenience store used to be next to Charlesworth Nuts.

Melbourne skate shop Fast Times has opened on Gawler Place (south).
Dang! That means there's no CBD presence for Nando's now right?

Yes, which is very disappointing. I thought they were usually quite busy!

It might be the wrong thread to ask this but does anyone know what used to be underneath the Rundle Arcade (parc arcade). There used to be escalators down next to Adelaide Exchange Jewelers on the Stephens Place side however they were boarded up many years ago. I have had no luck finding any information about it.
It used to be a cinema.

From about 1980 until it was closed it was called Hoyts Mid City, but before that I think it was called Hoyts Cinema 3

I have a vague recollection that To Be Or Not To Be was one of the last movies shown there which would make it around mid to late 84 or early 1985 that it would have closed.

I am pretty sure that either Spotlight or Lindcraft (or a type of store like that) was down there during the late 80s early 90s and there was just white boarding across where the cinema used to be.

There's rumours that the cinema is still there today and hasn't been touched since it closed, but I don't think it's ever been confirmed.

Speaking of lost underground spaces, did anything interesting use to be in the basement of Station Arcade?

When it opened it was a Food Court with a variety of eateries and I vaguely recall it had a subway/train theme. Even a clock that had a diesel train make a noise at certain intervals if my memory serves me correctly!
