Gilbert Street Hotel, Adelaide CBD

ADELAIDE | The Gilbert Street Hotel is a stalwart of the Adelaide pub scene. The historic building is full of character, with the alfresco front seating leading into an open space with a large bar, and a more intimate room then a courtyard out back.

The pub might have a historic air about it, but the offering is exactly what you’d want from a modern pub. There’s an extensive wine list touching in on local and boutique South Australian wineries, a very decent cocktail list, and one of the best craft beer lists in Adelaide.

There’s 30 beers on tap, featuring new release local and imported beers, and limited seasonal brews. If that’s not enough, there’s also a 100+ strong bottle and can list, full of beers from across the spectrum, including ones you won’t find elsewhere in town.

Food wise, it’s ethically sourced South Australian produced used to create delicious versions of pub classics. Think fried chicken, tacos, burgers, schnitzel, pizza, pasta, and the like.

And, just like any good pub, there’s local bands playing live music every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, quiz nights, and other events.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
