As we return to a somewhat normal reality here in Adelaide, new bars and cafes begin to pop up.
We’ve found a new bar for you to add to your inner-city list, John Doe’s Local Bar, Gilbert Street’s latest addition.
The bar has a focus on showcasing the best of South Australian produce, with most of what is sold coming from local producers.
John Doe’s Local Bar is also set to serve an extensive range of house wine, beers and spirits, all for $6 (although the bar won’t be able to serve alcohol until October due to liquor licensing issues).
John Doe’s Local Bar, opened by Bella Mercuri and her partner, is named after the alias used when the true name of a person is unknown, or being intentionally concealed by authorities.
The fit out is an eclectic mix of furnishings gathered from local suppliers and vintage stores.
While Spring brings with it warmer days, the nights still have that Winter chill, perfect for you to cosy up next to John Doe’s glorious fireplace.
In terms of food, John Doe’s is serving up some delicious looking muffins, croissants, toasties and coffee every morning, and light lunch options until 3pm daily.
John Doe’s uses locally sourced olives, cheeses and dips for their antipasto style nibbles.
When the bar does start slinging those $6 drinks, you will be able to make your own tasty bar snack platter.
Choose between nuts, housemade jerky and pork crackle, pretzels and more to create your ideal bevvy accompaniment.
