When someone says to me they have a secret bar they want to show me – my usual reaction is, “OMFG, show me now!!” So obviously, that was what I said when I found out that the bar I was having lunch at (Lindes Lane) had a secret bar underneath. It’s so secret that only those who are special enough to know that it’s there – know.

Here’s how you get there: go down Rundle Mall towards Hindley Street, turn left at Lindes Lane where you’ll find colourful lounges and delicious food and drinks. Stay there for a while – it’s awesome.



Then, venture down below. Walk down the stairs and next to the bathroom you’ll find a wall with a rather attractive fireplace.


But don’t let that fool you – the fireplace is in fact a secret door!  And like in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, behind the door is a magical land – the secret Lindes Lane Bar. It’s old-fashioned in a cool, vintage kind of way.



With couches, chairs and benches and a long bar, it’s the perfect spot for an event — Hens, birthdays, even weddings! You can hire the room out for functions, but only if you want to “wow” your friends. Because, believe me, they WILL be wowed!

So, do what I did today – go for an adventure in our city, you’ll be blown away by what you might find underneath….
