Adelaide night life is a JOKE!! Stay out of hindley ST!! It is a mess. I mean I've lived in adelaide all my life and i can not think of anywhere else that is a ***hole.. It is a mess, disgrace and a total JOKE. And I'm more than happy to bag my own city because of how bad it is. Do yourself a favour and stay out of Adelaide and enjoy everywhere else but Adelaide!!
You will thank me later that is for sure!!
THE HINDLEY STREET HAS TO BE ADELAIDES MOST WORST AND UNSAFEST STREET FOR ANY OUTSIDER.FULL OF ABO'S AND JUNKIES FOR A COUPLE LOOKING TO TRAVELL IGNORE THE STREET.SOUTH AUSTRALIANS HAVE NO SKILLS AND AGGRESSIVE GRUG INDUCED BUNCH OF ***WITS STUCK IN THE SEVENTIES.MORONS AND THE GIRLS ARE DISEASED FILLED BUNCH OF SLUTS THAT WILL SUCK A COCK TILL THE COWS COME HOME HOW? I'VE DONE IT THATS WHY
I dont like to go to Hindley St unless Im going to the Horse or if im on a bender and want to kick on for a while, in that case I usually go to the Mile High club. Upon entering the Mile High, adjacent to the bar I noticed a door....I opened it and went inside, the door closed and I became aware I was the only non aboriginal person in there. I went to the door to leave and found myself at the very back of a place I didnt know how to get out of. Straight away I was welcomed by an old female friend who was aboriginal. After talking for no longer than a few seconds I WAS KING HIT. It was a night club and of course very dark. The offender cracked me and ran off. Obviously I wanted to find out who this gutless person was, but was quickly talked into leaving before I had them all onto me as it is usually the case
I want to be let it known stay away from this place!!!. Thanks must go the people who would have witnesed this and came to my aid. (none) No wonder these people get a bad name..
I dont understand why Mile High would have this door being able to open, knowing theres nothin but trouble and no way of getting out without having to walk from the back of the place and upstairs to the front.....
Enigma, smack bang on Hindley St, city, just west of Morphett St. Bands from all around heard here. Not too big, upstairs, small bar, a low stage, easy to fall on, but pulls good crowds to many metal/rock/hardcore/grunge gigs. Most gigs are on Friday or Saturday nights, and tix can often be purchased at the door or, for bigger bands, at venutix. To see a more well known band could set you back maybe $15-20 or so.. maybe less. it varies. Local bands play there too- some for EP launches and the like- costs about $5-12. Some gigs are 18+, but many are not. Minors have to be out by midnight.
Dress Code: Anything really! Most of the folk are somewhat 'alternatively' dressed. So if your friend invites you to a metal gig, try wear some closed in shoes and something dark. A pink mini skirt and heels will get you a lot of stares!! But otherwise, no one cares, they are there for the music, not the fashion.
Genre: Indie pop/rock/lowfi/altcountry.
Music venue by night student pub by day.
Large sized stage, great PA has a mezzanine area.
Beer on tap. Small to medium capacity, almost never too crowded.
Friendly staff (even the security!) Relaxed atmosphere
More of a venue than pub.
Almost always cover charge.
Dress Code: casual
Not many people know about this place, but it's a gem because after all the other clubs have closed, this little beauty is usually still kicking on until morning - it opens at 3am. Hidden away in the top floor of a building called Basement, you will have to brave a walk along the the seedier part of Hindley st to get there (it's worth it, be brave) but at 5am you're probably just concentrating on walking straight anyway... :) The seats, complete with traytables, are all taken from an old aeroplane, and every once in a while a stewardess will take your drink order. This place is TINY and if you can get a seat, power to you, but if not just break out on the dance floor to the excellent dance music. Or take a breather on the mini balcony out the back.
Dress Code: None.
Minke is about as close to club perfection as you can get in Adelaide. Having said that, it does have its off nights (but doesn't everywhere?). Multi levels of music cater to most people's tastes, with a heavy focus on funk and hip hop on the ground floor and techno, trance and d&b on the top floor (also called Skylab). One door price (usually about $10, more expensive than most clubs) will get you into both levels. Stays open until about 5-6am on Fri/Sat.
Dress Code: No particular dress code, but avoid thongs and shorts and touristy clothes.
Mojo is gaining popularity in the West end - it's a bit divorced from the other places so it's easy to miss it. You can go nuts on the dancefloor (if you can get on it) to hip hop or fairly hard dance music, you can chill out in the two couch areas, or go outside to the beer garden to cool off. If you're out for a night of clubbing in the West end you have to try Mojo out.
Dress Code: Guys: Anything that looks vaguely 'street' will get you in no worries. Avoid shorts and sneakers, and anything touristy looking.
Girls: Anything goes.
Set underground, Supermild is a very small, very groovy little club. Opening around 9pm and closing very, very late, it's a good place to either start or end your evening. 1970s decor and music, a small dancefloor, dj booth and cosy seating setup, this place is an Adelaide retro favourite (although the mainstream nightclubbers are starting to find it now, so it can get a bit weird at times...). The music is for dancing, but it's always on the more mellow side; definitely no hardcore clubbers to found here. Fantastic cocktails menu, and free water on the bar for all - what great guys! Definitely open Friday and Saturday nights, not sure about mid week.
Dress Code: No dress code, but if you really want to look like you 'fit in' then either go for the street/skater look or some understated 70s vintage.
Set in Adelaide's ultra-cool-but-not-showing-it-off West End, this pub is excellent all day long. During the day it's fantastic for a bite to eat or a drink, either out on the street people watching, in the front bar, the pool room or the shady beer garden. At night it's a popular meeting place for almost everyone going out in the West end. Their food is fantastic value (you can get a great meal for about AU$6 - $12), the staff are friendly (they look scary but they're not) and the music is generally hip hop or funk (depending on what night you go). The crowd is always a mix, ranging from dressed-up posers to the multi-pierced, ultra-alternative types.
Dress Code: Definitely no dress code. Anything goes in here.
