I’m definitely not cool enough to go and get lit on Peel Street. But give me a couple of cocktails and hey, anything is possible! Because Peel Street has such a great rep, it would be unfair of me to not share with you a list of all the bars you need to pop into next time you’re feeling a little swank.
:: 2 Peel St, Adelaide
Everything you want from a specialty cocktail bar — with over 100 classic cocktails on the menu, as well as a rotating signature menu.
2. Maybe Mae
:: 15 Peel St, Adelaide
A glamorous, secret-society-style 1950s bar decked out with green leather booths, exotic flowers, mirrors and, of course, a magnificent cocktail and wine list.
:: 19 Peel St, Adelaide
Open Monday to Saturday from 4pm until late — serving up a delicious range of drops and snack food.
:: 18 Peel St, Adelaide
For spirit-lovers, you’ll adore this watering hole — it’s a whisky and gin bar.
5. Alfred’s Bar
:: 14 Peel St, Adelaide
Serving all your faves and all the feels in one cutie patootie bar. Locals call it a home-away-from-home and visitors flock from all over to sip in the front bar.
6. La Moka Café
:: 16 Peel St, Adelaide
This Italian inspired café and bar is open from when you wake up (7:30am) and is on like Donkey Kong for breakfast, lunch, coffee and even drinks and small plates on selected evenings.
:: 23 Peel St, Adelaide
This is Kaffana’s cheeky sister restaurant, well known for finger-licking good food, outstanding cocktails and top-notch service.
:: 28 Peel St, Adelaide
An authentic Spanish dining experience, inspired by La Ramba, Barcelona! You can expect a blend of traditional and innovative tapas dishes, as well as tasty sangria recipes and a looooong cocktail list.
:: 20 Peel St, Adelaide
The newbie on Peel, this small bar serves up drinks and dinner, open Monday to Saturday.
Now, that’s a bloody list! Go and get lit (for me) because let’s be honest, I’m probably at home with my kids on the couch telling them to put their iPads away.
