Apoteca has a casual vibe inspired by New York brasseries, with bespoke lighting, subway tiles layered along the back wall, and mirror details added to the venue’s centrepiece – a 141-year-old pharmacist’s dispensary from which the preceding venue took it’s name.

The drinks menu is an impressive 30 pages long – with a focus on wine and Prohibition-era cocktails, and the menu is distinctly Euro-leaning. Divided into First Aid (bar snacks), Vitamins (vegies), Proteins and Side Effects (sides), the food might take the form of fried duck egg with brioche soldiers and dragoncello (tarragon); cauliflower steak with passata and gruyere; or grilled octopus with cherry tomato and garlic chips.

The courtyard and cellar is open to the public every Friday and Saturday night, bringing a little bit of New York’s East Village to Adelaide’s west.
