Adelaide City Bars, Pubs and Cafés

Enjoy a drink and a great meal in Adelaide

Adelaide city has more than one hundred pubs and clubs, from warm and cosy to chic sophistication.

Al fresco dining at Rigoni’s, Leigh Street, Adelaide, South Australia

Many pubs date back to the 1830s but seamlessly blend the historic with the contemporary. It’s impossible to name them all but here are a few Adelaide favourites.

Adelaide city

Catch some live music at The Exter, The Austral or The Old Exchange. The Stag has one of Adelaide’s best balconies and The Tivoli and The General Havelock are great meeting spots. The Apple Bar is a late night venue and Distill is a twist on Adelaide’s cocktail scene. Relax in style at The Apothecary or Mesa Lunga.

Alfresco dining

Adelaide’s warm climate is perfect for alfresco dining, either on one of our bustling “eat streets” or soaking up the sun and sights at a beachfront café.

Visit Glenelg’s Jetty Road or the “other” Jetty Road at Brighton. Try Henley Square at Henley Beach or Semaphore. There’s much more than just fish and chips here.

Eastern suburbs

The Bath has an ideal outdoor area and The Robin Hood showcases some of Adelaide’s best musical talent. The Edinburgh has a famous garden and both The Colonist and The Oriental have a great atmosphere. The Alma has food for all tastes and The Cremorne prides itself on its service. Boho Bar is a little bit different.
