South Australia’s Ultimate Fireplace Guide

The days are getting shorter, and the cold is creeping back into our lives, so it’s officially that time of year again when finding a pub, restaurant or bar with a fireplace can mean the difference between a good night out and a great night out.

By

Cold weather is the enduring lame conversation starter of civilisations all over the world, and to be blunt, that needs to end in 2018. If the Inuit populations of this planet have figured out how to rug up and get on with things, then surely there’s hope for the citizens of Adelaide, right?

Of course we’ve all fallen into the trap of looking out the window in the morning and thinking ‘light cotton cardigan’ when actually we should have had two hot water bottles strapped beneath a sleeping bag cut into the shape of a functional outfit. When we make these mistakes as adults there’s really only one course of appropriate action – to take responsibility for our mistake, suck it up and head to the nearest pub. Preferably with a roaring fire.

Because Glam is still waiting for the patent to clear on our sleeping bag suit with hot water bladders (Burnside Village will house our flagship store), the best we can do for now for now is guide you safely to your nearest source of fire and liquor/food.

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.
