Tucked Away Bars
260-262 Rundle Street, Adelaide 5000
You’ve probably walked right past BRKLYN on your way along Rundle Street.
Behind the door with a neon ‘B’, head upstairs and find yourself transported to downtown New York. Brklyn is bringing a slice of the big apple to the East End, stocked with American classics plus unique cocktail creations like the Blueberry Mint Julep and New York Sour.
Cool beats are streamed from their in-house radio station and unisex barber ‘Crooked’ (inspired by the barber shops of New York) is on hand if you need a fresh cut. There’s also a menu of NY-inspired snacks and treats – make sure to try the Pastrami sandwich with pickle and crisps!

Rooftop, 143 Hindley Street, Adelaide 5000
Nineteen Ten: Mr Minsky’s Burlesque and Jazz Club is the newest speakeasy to arrive in Adelaide!
Hidden away upstairs on Hindley Street you’ll find this lively jazz and burlesque bar, complete with baby grand piano, rooftop swimming pool (and bath!), and a swinging in-house band.
The name is a tip of the hat to the Minsky brothers as the founders of the burlesque scene in New York, and with its glamorous interior it certainly looks the part. Soak up the atmosphere and settle in for live jazz and burlesque performances 8pm till late Thursday – Saturday.
