7. Mother Vine Wine Bar

22-26 Vardon Avenue, Adelaide
Open Christmas Eve, Close Christmas Day

Celebrate Christmas at Mother Vine – a great place for all Wine lovers. Situated in the old East End Cellars space, the venue offers a sophisticated wine bar experience. The name Mother Vine comes from a Pinot Noir, the MV6. Their sophisticated wine list aims to stay in touch with locals from the regions around Adelaide but also contains a selection of local craft and importers beers. The ambience is cosy and warm; a perfect Christmas evening.

 

6. Therapy Cocktail Bar

2  Peel Street, Adelaide
Close Dec 24-26 and Open Dec 27

If you’re like us and love a good cocktail to celebrate then Therapy is for you because these guys sure know how to serve one! But outside of their delicious cocktails, they also offer a small selection of local and imported wines as well gourmet toasties and charcuterie platters, yum! Although they have a hundred cocktails to choose from, it is categorised by spirits to make the process a little easier (sort of)! This bar will be a hit during Christmas so make you and your friends put this on the to-go list!

 

5. Alfreds

4 Peel Street, Adelaide
Close Dec 24-26 and Open Dec 27

Alfred’s is a casual, relaxed bar on the bustling Peel Street (one of our favourite streets of Adelaide)! Although it may appear ‘small’ from the outside, the cozy bar has an upstairs area with plenty of seats and even darts! They also offer a range of SA wines, local beers, spirits and seasonal cocktails – all served with exceptional, friendly service. The staff are always engaging and make great recommendations when you’re spoilt for choice. It’s a fantastic place to pull out a stool, enjoy a drink or two with a couple of friends and have a nice conversation still without music blaring. A must on the list!

 

4. Bibliotheca

27 Gresham Street, Adelaide
Open Christmas Eve, Close Christmas Day
