The last month of Winter certainly hasn’t seen Adelaide hibernating this year, with a spate of new businesses opening ahead of the Spring rush! Here’s what’s been happening in our fair city.
The Stag Public House. Oliver Brown, Jamie Huffman, Justin Penman, and Josh Talbot have revamped and resurrected the historic hotel, (which dates back to 1849), and given her a slightly new name. Craft beer and whiskey enthusiasts Ollie and Josh, have already established the damn good name of NOLA right next door, so we’re sure The Stag Public House is in very capable hands. Find out all the details here.
The Noble Gentleman. Set to shake up the small bar scene in Adelaide, The Noble Gentleman is a small bar-style venue that essentially will be the CBD’s cellar door. Always local and always changing, the bar aims to showcase different local South Australian wineries each month on their menu and in their bar. Find out more here.
The Tipsy Gypsy is a travelling bar that has set up at the Adelaide Central Market in the Gouger Dining Area from 5.30pm to 9pm on Fridays. It’s only on during August though so get in this Friday for their last hurrah. Read more here.
Hey Diddle Wines. Technically not a new bar, this is booze related so we’re throwing it in. Please welcome a winemaker, a bon vivant and two pipe dreamers, that is Hey Diddle Wines. The boys aim to take out some of the pretentiousness that comes with wine-making, and instead offer an affordable and approachable selection of local wines. Read more here.
Pan & Vine Pizza & Wine Bar. With wine in its name, we thought we’d also throw this into the new bar section. Now open on King William Street, Pan and Vine is the new venue by brothers Luke and Anthony Savas. After honing their skills at the West Beach Pizza Bar and working with dough for more than a decade, the brothers are going out on their own for the funky pizza and cocktail spot. Find out more here.
Little Tinnie. Based out of a custom-made caravan, the retro bar will pop up around around the Clare, serving up wine, cocktails and wood-fired dishes. Custom-made in Victoria, the caravan is decked out with wood panelling and pressed tin, with a snazzy black and white external paint job. Read all about it here.
