with Spencer Gulf school fish ceviche, chilli

Proof
The locals are flocking to an alleyway off
Waymouth Street called Anster Street, for chef
Andy Davies’ toasties – Speck, Onion, Mac and
Cheese; Jamon, Truffle and Buffalo Mozzarella;
Beef Ragu and Fontina. Or how about some
freshly shucked oysters with your cocktails and
wine? There’s a bit of old-school charm here with
waiters in waistcoats, dim lighting and a gold
ceiling but for the fans it’s all about the food and
the cocktail list.
9a Anster Street, Adelaide. Open Monday to
Thursday and Saturday 4pm-2am; Friday 2pm-2am.

Clever Little Tailor
From the crew at the Coffee Branch on Leigh
Street, this little bar attracts a buzzy and diverse
crowd. It calls itself a quality liquor bar and it
delivers with a large selection of top class classic
spirits, some micro-brewery tap beer, wine and
sparkling. It’s smart without being pretentious,
a smooth spot for after 5pm drinks – you’ll be
shoulder to shoulder with plenty of ‘suits’ and the
service has been rated five-star.
19 Peel St, Adelaide. Open Monday to Saturday,
from 4pm-late. See
.
Jack Ruby
Jack Leon Ruby, the notorious nightclub
operator who killed President John F. Kennedy’s
assassin Lee Harvey Oswald may have died
long ago in the ‘60s but his spirit lives on in the
underground bar on King William Street that
takes his name. Chef SamWorrall-Thompson
and partners Aaron Sandow and Gareth Lewis
have given the place a touch of Americana from
the food to the drinks, décor and the service.
Every week day there’s a happy hour from 5pm
to 6pm with $6 beer, wine, tacos and buffalo
wings and favourites on the menu are the Deep
Fried Wisconsin Mac’n’Cheese Balls and the
Route 66 Tasting menu, a sampler of five courses
from east to west coast.
89 King William Street, Adelaide. Open Monday to
Saturday 12 noon-late. See
.
The Curious Squire
Drew Aiken has come all the way from Alabama
in the US to take charge of the new smoker in
the kitchen which will be cooking low and slow
brisket, ribs and pork shoulder to complement
the New York-style pizzas and burgers already on
the menu and James Squire beers from the brew
bar. DJs pump up the music on Saturday night
while Sunday afternoons are more mellow with
acoustic music. Sit on the heritage-listed deck
and muse over the views from high on North
Adelaide’s hill.
10 O’Connell Street, North Adelaide. Open 12 noon-
late seven days. See

City welcomes
new hotels
Hotel operators have already seen the
opportunity in the invigorated Adelaide and a
handful of new projects are set to open their
doors. One is the $32 million redevelopment
of the historic Colonial Mutual Life Building at
45 King William Street, which opens in April
as the new Mayfair Hotel (
below
), a 4.5 star
boutique hotel with 170 rooms and suites over
11 levels. The new hotel features a six-storey
extension called the ‘jewel box’ which is the
visual centrepiece of the hotel. A three-level
entry void features a grand stairway and the
fit-out reflects a 1930s theme.
Quest is adding to its dominance of the
serviced apartment market with a new
property of 105 one and two bedroom
apartments expected to open in May on King
William South on the southern fringe of the
CBD. And Accor will bring its first Hotel Ibis to
the city in July, a $65 million 17-level economy
hotel on city-central Grenfell Street.
Say Hello
Georgia Cromarty, 21, and Christopher Hocking, 24, are among the young
entrepreneurs revitalising hidden corners of Adelaide with quirky new places to
hang out. At Hello Yes Coffee Chris (who grew up in Sunnybank, Brisbane) bakes the
bagels – affectionately called ‘ugly bagels’ because he’s still mastering the shape, but
that’s what makes this place so great, who cares? It’s also a space for local talents to
display their wares for sale. One of the baristas makes tie-dyed clothing and other arty
nick-nacks include jewellery, greeting cards and calendars. At 12 Eliza Street, city. Open
Monday to Friday 8am-3pm; Saturday 10am-4pm. See
