Adelaide Vintage Pub Guide

We at Bar Advisor love vintage pubs, so we have designed a walk to see Adelaide’s finest. Some of the venues are not pubs or hotels anymore, but there are plenty you can stop in and have a drink. Most of the bars you will see are from the mid 1800’s but there are also couple of newer ones. So make sure your camera is charged and you have your walking shoes on.

This route is based around walking, but you could drive to most of them as Adelaide is very easy to drive around and parking is usually not a problem.

There is also a free bus that goes around the city, you could use that as a hop on- hop off bus. Most pubs are not a long walk from the bus stops.

Make sure it is a good day and wear lots of sunscreen, plus drink responsibly.

Adelaide's Coolest Pub?

Well we love The Beresford Arms because it gives you a great idea of what all these huge pubs used to look like in the 1830’s, but our favorite to have a beer at is Rob Roy.

The most photo worthy is the Botanic Hotel. This hotel has changed a lot over the years and is now more beautiful than ever.
