Calling all Adelaidians! Are you a dedicated, hard worker who deserves a little treat at the end of the day? We think you do, and there’s no better way to treat yourself than with a cheap drink or two after work. Whatever day of the week it is, you’re bound to find a great happy hour deal in Adelaide – take a look at five of our favourites!
There’s nowhere better to cure that case of Monday-it is than the legendary Gilbert Street Hotel. Famed for its awesome beer garden, cosy fireplace and extensive menu, this friendly pub is definitely one of the good ones. This is especially the case between 5-6pm on Mondays, when selected pints and basic spirits are $6 each, and Stella Artois is only $5!
“Time and time again the food stacks up to the highest quality. Some of the best gastro pub food I have tried. Great rotating craft beer list and a compelling wine list to match. Bravo” – mowhere
Welcome to the Motherland! From the Tudor-style exterior to the choice of 24 draught beers (pints, naturally), The Elephant British Pub is wonderfully committed to its traditional theme. What’s more, if you’re a hospitality worker, it’s the best place in Adelaide to be on a Tuesday night. Just mention where you work, and you get spirits for $5 and selected beers for $6 and $7!
“Great place to have a good pint watch some rugby and have a superb meal. Highly recommend the mixed grill.” – roryo
Perhaps the only Adelaide establishment that lets you order a large burger with a smaller burger perched on top of it, the Mile End is always worth a mention. It’s beautifully decorated (check out the stunning murals) and extremely welcoming, and boasts one of the best deals in town on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. That’s $6.50 pints and $10 wine bottles (house excluded) all day long!
“First time to the Mile End and loved the vibe. Lovely beer garden leading into a room with couches. The dining room was lovely with the art and mismatched tables and chairs.” – 4chillis
Famous for its kickass Thursday nights, The Duke of York is a lively pub that offers $3 shots and sparkling between 9-12pm, $5 vodka and pints between 9pm-3am, and even $6 pizzas between 6-9pm! Honestly, we can’t think of a better way to spend our Thursday nights and get ready for a cruisey Friday in the office.
“I’d have to say that this is one of my favourite pubs in Adelaide. In fact I have been here for many occasions from lunch with friends, to work functions, to a couple of drinks, to whiling away the night in their awesome beer garden.” – David Sarkies
Cabaret, fine art and expert mixology combine to devastating effect at La Boheme, one of Adelaide’s trendiest haunts. It’s got a unique kind of moody opulence, all gothic chandeliers, plush booths and dark antique furniture, and it’s very cool indeed. Better yet, Friday night offers a great two-for-one deal on Absolut vodka cocktails! In fact, we call it an Absolut steal!
