When it comes to the bar scene, Adelaide is spoilt for choice. With temperatures set to soar, this is a great time of the year to get together with friends and check out some of Adelaide’s newest drinking destinations.
If you’re looking for something small and quaint, then you can’t go past Alfred’s. Located in Peel St, this charming bar has a simple and casual vibe. Its retro-glazed tiles and timber detailing give it warmth and character – and along with good old fashioned service – make it a comfortable and relaxing place to hang out. It serves up local tap and premium beers, SA Wines and cocktails.
Located on The Parade in Norwood, this French inspired food and wine bar has only just opened its doors. As the brainchild to neigbouring French cafe, La Madeleine, it just oozes charm. Its courtyard garden is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy a selection of cheeses and a glass of vino. So, if you’re after a quick drink before heading home, or looking for somewhere to catch up with friends on a balmy summer evening, then you can’t overlook the newbie.
Get excited! Our weather is starting to heat up, and what better way to celebrate than wetting your whistle at Adelaide’s newest bar, Superfish. For the perfect summer night, make your way to the back of the venue to Fruity’s Exquisite Juice Bar and try the frosé (frozen rosé) or a freshly juiced Superfruit Margarita. Starting to feel peckish? Check out their raw bar which has things like THE BEST oysters and ceviche.
If you’re just looking for something off the beaten path, nothing too fancy, with a strong focus on South Aussie talent, then you need to check out The Muse Bar. Located on the south end of Pulteney Street it’s hard to miss, with an eye-catching exterior mural by local artist Jack Andrew Mellor. Decked out with local artwork, the space doubles as a creative hub for SA artists. The Muse are also passionate in their support for local booze and food.
With its sleek black marble bar and exposed red brickwork, Spot & Co, located on picturesque Melbourne Street, is the kind of bar that makes a statement. The wooden, glass fronted doors are thrown open letting the sunlight stream in, offering the alluring prestige we’ve come to expect from North Adelaide. They somehow ooze sophistication and old-world charm at the same time, making you feel like you’ve stepped right into a speak-easy bar from the 1920s. The overall essence is “slightly Old School, with a contemporary vibe”.
As one of the latest arrivals to the West end, it’s always sunny on Solomon Street. Sunny’s, a party and pizza joint, is shaking things up in Adelaide. And we don’t just mean shaking up cocktail ingredients.The place is the work of 5-man band consisting of Andy Nowell, Josh Cook, Ash Wilson, Josh Dolman and Rob Denisoff. The boys have come together from various areas of the food and beverage industry to create a unique kind of… nightclub? Restaurant? Dive bar? Pizza bar? Whatever it is, we like it.
Bring on the weekend!
