Mill Street, Adelaide
Open Tuesday-Friday from 12pm, Saturday from 3pm & Sunday from 12pm

Tucked away between Gouger and Wright Streets, 55ml practically occupies it’s very own laneway being the only stop on Mill Street. Described as a warm and friendly city cafe and bar, the new venue is quickly becoming popular coffee catch-up spot for surrounding workers by day, and a cosy cocktail venue by night.


Syngogue Place, Adelaide (just of Rundle Street)
Open Fridays & Saturdays from 8pm

Hacienda’s location takes place in a former church that previously housed the popular Apple Bar. The venue boasts a glamourous and at times odd look – with the giant disco ball holding its place from the former venue and the addition of interesting artwork that surrounds the huge dance floor. This club is up-market for those who like to dress nice, drink well and party into the night.


Mayfair Hotel, 45 King William Street, Adelaide
Open Monday-Thursday from 4pm-11pm, Friday from 3pm-2am, Saturday from 4pm-2am & Sunday from 2pm-10pm

The newest venue to make this month’s most popular list, Hennnessy is a classy rooftop bar located on the 13th floor of the Mayfair Hotel. Opening for Adelaide’s elite crowd and interstate and overseas guests, the space is small (for a rooftop bar) but stunning – complete with elegant decor from the marble bar to the stunning chandelier, leading out to a stylish deck and balcony.


1 North Terrace, Adelaide
Open Wednesday-Sunday

Adelaide’s largest and most popular nightclub, HQ often plays host to some of the world’s biggest and most popular bands and DJs. HQ Complex is set to close after a massive, sold out final night on 28th January – to relocate to the former Crazy Horse venue later in the year. Time is running out to catch this venue while you can – arguably, Adelaide’s most popular venue.

Maybe Mae

15 Peel Street, Adelaide
Open Tuesday-Saturday from 12pm-late

The downstairs, almost hidden bar of Maybe Mae can be accessed via a combined premises of Peel Street and Leigh Street. The drinks on the menu are mostly premium only and the bartenders will make recommendations on how to make your favourite a bit fancier. Head on upstairs for a meal at Bread & Bone and enjoy the best of both worlds!


9a Anster Street, Adelaide
Open Monday-Friday from 3pm & Saturday from 4pm

We must admit, we were really happy to see that this was one of our most searched venues last month; our team recently spent some time at Proof after a long absence are were reminded just how good it truly is. One of the first and only still standing small bars, proof features and extensive wine list and an amazing gourmet food menu, amongst a setting complete with dimmed lights and old-school charm.


Level 1, 274 Rundle Street, Adelaide
Open Wednesday-Sunday from 9pm-4am

Sugar is, and always has been, great for a mid-week party – and is one of the few places of its kind that is open almost every night of the week. Featuring some of Adelaide’s best home grown DJs and great international acts, Sugar is also one of the few remaining venues to spin vinyl. This venue is in a class of its own which explains why it has been so popular year after year.

Super California

9 Hindley Street, Adelaide
Open Fridays & Saturdays

After a successful stint as Go Go Lady Boy in 2015, number 9 Hindley Street has done a lot to reinvent their image over the past 12 months – and it’s worked! Super California quickly made waves amongst the Adelaie club scene with a beach-meets-desert bar feel and the good ol’ juice bar making its welcome return.


73a Hindley Street, Adelaide
Open Wednesday-Saturday from 9pm-2am

Supermild has experienced a revival in recent months after finding a new Hindley Street home. Adelaide’s alternative crowds have always embraced this good times only club and the reopening has been no exception. Supermild is hosted in a small and dark venue and plays a variety of tunes from jazz to dance and grunge, and is exceptionally popular on Wednesday nights.

XL Superclub

27 Hindley Street, Adelaide
Open Saturdays from 9pm-6am

Only open on Saturday nights only, XL Superclub gives Red Square and HQ a run for their money when it comes to popularity! This venue has regular line-ups that exceed 1 hour and is the go-to place for all who love R&B. XL Superclub is currently closed for January, set to open next month in conjunction with new venue, Downton On Hindley.
