We finally hit Spring! It’s here! Time to find a spot in the sun, get a tasty beverage, and spend the afternoons experiencing some of the best weather in the country. Check out our picks for the top 5 beer gardens in Adelaide!
The Goodwood Hotel has a huge oasis of a beer garden, complete with leafy trees and undercover areas so no matter what the weather you can enjoy the fresh air. They have barstools, picnic style tables or big lounge chairs, so it’s perfect for whatever socialising mood you happen to be in.
The Deck Bar at The Highway is one of Adelaide’s favourite beer gardens. The huge sails, wooden decking and heaters will keep you comfortable and the range of spirits, wine and craft beers will keep you happy. There’s even a 7.5’-10’ LED screen to keep you entertained and up-to-date with the sporting scores.
The Gilbert Street Hotel
Tucked away from most of the bustle but within easy walking distance of the Central Markets, the Gilbert Street Hotel has the most beautiful beer garden. It’s clean and modern but with enough foliage, both fake and real, to make you feel like you’re far away from the city drudgery. With an extensive wine and cocktail list and a good range of Aussie and Imported beers, there’s something for everyone at knock off.
If you’re looking for leafy and green, the Edinburgh Hotel and Cellars in Mitcham has got you covered. You can sit in what is definitely more garden than beer and bounce light off a glass of something from their amazing wine list. They have a special Spring menu to really get your tastebuds flying and do live music all through the week. This is definitely one to come down South for.
When you combine the lighting, the colours, and the general openness of Republic at Norwood, you get one amazing space to enjoy the outside, inside. They have a bunch of different theme nights and specials on, so you can come and enjoy this beer garden with a variety of entertainment and food options, including sangria! If there’s something better than a glass of sangria in the sunshine, I’m yet to discover it.
