Take a step back to the 19th Century with this brilliantly recreated old apothecary (olden-day chemist). Undoubtedly the strongest European venue in Adelaide in terms of styling, the west end wonder attracts a very diverse crowd and is often best suited for intimate dinners and drinks. Intriguing surroundings decorate this unique concept bar, from the red walls and couches to the vintage mirrors and Renaissance-inspired lighting. The eclectic menu features tapas and sophisticated wines and, while their cocktails are a crowd favourite, their award-winning wine list is the true star of Apothecary 1878.

A beautiful venue that oozes class. Exceptional range of products, not just wine and fantastic food! Intimate, cosy and quite romantic but accessible with comforting and knowledgeable service.


Fascinating, quiet, moody space with really lovely staff. The wine list is more like an encyclopedia and extends into the stratosphere of prices if you get carried away.


love the look of the place and they have some great drinks, could do with some more atmosphere however
