Best Late-Night Eats in Adelaide

Updated August 30th, 2021


Adelaide may not have the glut of all-hours meals of bigger cities, but dig a little deeper and you’ll find a crop of tireless venues burning the midnight oil to keep late-night diners fed, from chefs and bartenders after a shift, to groups of revellers who want to keep the party going. Here are some of the best.

  • Beer and fried chicken wings until 2am.

  • Take a seat at this (very) late-night hole-in-the-wall and make sure to order the black pepper beef.

  • The kitchen at Sunny's serves pizza and "not pizza" until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.

  • A New York-style deli which serves up classic midnight craving fare such as fried and fried pickles until 2am.

  • A vibing New-Orleans themed bar with a food menu filled with Creole and Cajun hits. It changes regularly but will always include the crowd-favourite fried chicken.

  • Question: Where can you get a cheese platter at 1am? Answer: Hains & Co, the west end’s nautical-themed bar that’s less novelty and more speakeasy.

  • East Taste’s salt and pepper eggplant is reason enough to venture to Gouger Street for a cheeky midnight snack. Catch it on Fridays and Saturdays until 2am.

  • Park up at the sleek terrazzo benches at this approachable bar for charcoal-cooked share plates and an exciting range of wines. From the top shelf down, there’s a drop for every taste and budget.

  • It’s a “pub in wine-bar skin”, with a rotating list of classic cocktails; bar snacks and cheeseboards; and a laid-back courtyard with loads of mediterranean energy.

  • This one's a no-frills diner that's open until 12.45pm every night, or 1am on weekends, and you can order right up until the doors close.

  • In the old Pirie Street Subway, this hawker-turned-restaurant continues its vision of regional Thai cooking in a sleek, modern space. Come for elevated takes of classic curries, grilled meats inspired by the country's north, and plenty of fiery wok drama.
