Adelaide's Best Bars,

After a hard days work, are you in the mood for a cold beer and a warm meal? Not some pink cocktail with people in suits talking about the latest Kardashian fashion item. 

Add some music to the recipe to the bar after dark and it’s a great way to start the weekend.

1. Austral Hotel

The Austral, is the ultimate tradie pub in Adelaide CBD. By showing your white card at the Austral you can receive some great food and drink deals.

The Austral gets busy on the weekend if you want a spot outside on a Friday afternoon you need to ask the boss to knock off a bit earlier.

Austral has great quiz nights on Wednesdays and live music Fridays -Sundays.

2. The Gov

There’s a very exciting vibe at this venue, thanks to their excellent service, and of course, their amazing events for almost every day of the year. From jazz concerts to national bands, this venue hosts any type of music event to suit your taste. It’s highly recommended for those who enjoy the local musical landscape, and are in for a tasty cold beer and warm tapas.

3. Southwark Hotel

This is a very casual and small venue that’s packed with all the good vibes and energy of a large, rather British, good quality pub. This is a perfect casual bar for pub lovers, beer gulpers, and pizza lovers as well. A small venue with all the goodies for a quick stop and top-notch national beers. No wonder why the quality of this pub is so huge; they’ve been with us in South Australia for over a century!

4. The Little Pub

This is a nice place to chill, however once the sun is all the wa down and the DJ shows up this place can get a bit crazy. This place is great for tradies as it’s a one stop shop, cheap drinks, cheap eats, pokes and a dance floor. They also have an amazing list of tap beers for you to enjoy right there! And the place is really comfortable as well.

6. Norwood Hotel

This place has a cheer up vibe that will improve tradies mood easily, even after a hard day of work. Also, it’s service is very friendly. It’s a cozy bar, and it will keep you comfortable until you can no longer feel your face. Also, for a little extra you can get a delicious steak or one of their famous salads to keep the engines on. They have experience treating beer as it should be, so you’ll never get one that’s not properly poured.

7. Seven Stars Hotel

To drink outdoors, to people watching a little bit, and to have a blast every time, we blindly recommend the Seven Stars Hotel. They have delicious tap cider and beer, served in properly chilled glasses, and some of the most delicious finger meal plates you can get for groups or yourself. This place is cool for tradies to hang out and chill, especially after a hard day of work.

8. The Archer Hotel

If you’re looking for a great place to have a beer and a delicious dinner, the Archer Hotel has got you covered. At this hipsterish type of venue, you’ll get the most delicious food and a huge selection of national and imported beers of your liking.  With the perfectly poured beer, their nice meals – with vegan options included – and their great ambiance, you’ll just need a group of mates to enjoy your nights. Comfortable space and good music are also a part of the deal.

9. Earl of Leicester Hotel

For a very stacked delicious meal and a good ol’ beer to fill your belly, this place hits the spot. Whether you’re a burger-lover or enjoy having a classic Schnitzel, this place is here to satisfy your meaty urges with all their menu. Their schnitzels are said to be the best in Adelaide. We had to try for ourselves and really, they are not that far off!
