It’s starting to get cold Adelaide, but we know that won’t stop us from going out and enjoying all our city has to offer! Your solution can be to throw on a massive jacket and a heap of scarves, but we have a more seamless (and probably more stylish) solution to keeping warm during your night or meal out: Head to a location with a nice fire pit.

Luckily for us, there’s a HUGE list of amazing places, all sporting fireplaces of various descriptions, so that when you’re after a glass of red in front of a toasty fire, you’ll know where to go.

We’ve split them up into categories – wood fireplaces for the purists, gas fireplaces when you’re happy just to get warm, Adelaide Hills venues with fireplaces, and for those who like adventure, wineries with fireplaces – because really, that’s the ultimate destination.
