    A cleverly designed bar in the midst of the busy Peel Street Leigh Street bar precinct of Adelaide. As soon as you step in, there is a warm feeling from the wood fittings and natural stone wall and the thirst for a great prohibition inspired cocktail or a bottle of Sancerre from Riffault sets in as you sit at the bar. The great staff does everything from plating up local cheese and meats, whipping up any cocktail and recommending a great bottle of Spanish natural wine from a carefully curated small but nifty wine list. There is also an extensive range of whiskies which has been sourced from in...

    East End Cellars is considered an institution. The fact that you can pay retail price + $15 to drink wine on site is a great convenience to have before you head out for dinner in the east end vicinity, where you can access some of the best restaurants in town. You can either enjoy a tasting with one of the featured winemakers on Friday and Saturday nights or just pick a bottle from an ever-increasing 3,000-bottle collection. There is also an eclectic selection of interesting craft breweries, local gins, vermouth, as well as shrubs. You can order snacks from the bistro or choose from the pan...

    When a top sommelier/winemaker and the owner of a wine and spirits distributing company decide to join forces and open their own joint, Hellbound is what you get. Just off one of the busiest main streets of Adelaide, Hellbound has been created in the basement of one of the original buildings, in what used to be a meat locker for a butcher’s shop upstairs. Step down one flight of stairs, and you will be welcome by the neon light installation proudly sporting the name of the bar on the brick wall. With a seating of about 60, you can either choose one of the tables or lounge in one of their chest...

    Address: 27 Gresham Street, Adelaide

    La Buvette Drinkery is a French wine & aperitif bar serving specialty French food, not surprising given co-owner operator Dominique Lentz is a proud Alsatian. Nestled in a small alley along other bars, La Buvette really does ooze the French culture. Any good French speaking person in Adelaide knows where they can go if they need to speak, eat and drink French. One of the things I really enjoy is when I drink off their list of lo-fi wines whilst listening to Dominique’s eccentric French beats. Yes, music is a big feature in this busy bar. Their playlist is more so influenced by French hip hop...
