Ed Castle

The Ed Castle is located towards the western end of Currie Street in a building that is nearly 2 centuries old. Considering the city of Adelaide is not that old itself, this particular venue has historical significance. The first thing you notice when you enter the place is the set of pool tables. I initially…

Royal Oak Hotel

The Royal Oak is a pub located on busy O’Connell Street in North Adelaide. While the exterior has a quaint facade, the interior is like a 1950’s unrenovated urban warehouse. We sat at a table that was made from recycled cinema seats, although the furnishings around us seemed to be a mish mash of throw…

The Bath Hotel

The Bath has been around since 1856 and is located at the eastern end of the Parade. The pub specialises in Modern Australian and Seafood, however you can still get your traditional pub fare. The decor here is modern and stylish, and the venue is quite spacious. The highlight of the place is the beer…

The former strip club, now turned pub, is basically decorated and offers all your traditional pub fare. The clientele are a bit…

Cumberland Arms Hotel

I used to go to the Cumby back when I was at uni, and these days I still find myself going back there. This is one of the few places that doesn’t charge entry after 9pm to get in. This recently renovated pub has a lot going for it. Consisting of a maze of rooms,…

Cafe One Two Nine

Cafe One Two Nine is the downstairs bar area in the Strathmore Hotel. I reckon I’ve been here at least 30 times over the years and for all sorts of reasons. Farewell drinks, company paid lunches and boozy nights are the most common ones. The decor is modern with warehouse style influences, and the service…

The Strathmore Hotel

I’ve been to the Strath so many times and for so many different reasons. Being a stone throw away from where I work, I’ve had dozens of farewell drinks, as well as many company paid lunches here. The location is convenient, particularly for my friends who have to catch the train home after a boozy…

The Wakefield Hotel

When I’m meeting a friend for lunch, we always go to The Wakefield Hotel, only because it’s closest to her work.┬áThe clientele are mainly professionals who work near by and the pub has all your traditional fare on the menu. Today, I ordered the Chicken Schnitzel with Mushroom Sauce. The meal came out 15 minutes…
