Adelaide has a thriving and unique bar scene, with a number of hidden and themed bars popping up around the city in recent years. So as a group why not sip your way around the laneways of Leigh St, Peel St and Gilbert Place in search of these hidden gems. Some of our picks are the Secret Vault at La Buvette Drinkery, BRKLYN and the Harry Potter inspired Sorcerer’s Bar.

With more than 200 cellar doors on its doorstep, Adelaide is the wine capital of Australia. Head just 20 minutes down the road and you are in Adelaide Hills wine region, home to world-class restaurants and award-winning wineries including Penfolds Magill Estate – Australia’s most prized wine.
You can also choose to venture 45 minutes south to McLaren Vale, for the ultimate blend of sea and vines. Or it’s just 50 minutes northeast to the Barossa where you can taste the official ‘World’s Best Shiraz’ for yourself.
