Good place to have a couple (or a few) drinks with friends. Interesting atmosphere & decor underground. Couple comfy reservable areas with big tables and seating for big groups, so if you plan a night out with a dozen people, reserve one. Extensive drinks menu,...More

Visited the BSS bar as part of Foodi's Craft beer tour of Adelaide (which is highly recommended). You could so easily walk past the entrance without realising what an amazing bar lurks down the stairs. Awesome atmospheric venue, huge range of drinks (beers/wines/spirits) to chose...More

Don’t let the tiny black door fool you, this place is awesome. Great atmosphere, excellent staff and they know how to make a proper Disaronno sour. We will certainly be visiting again.

Went on a Saturday night after a tasty dinner elsewhere in the area. Really good selection of spirits, was drinking vodka & soda water which was fine, until you don't specify the type of vodka you want. They just give you the cheap stuff, but...More

This is a nice bar to come to for drinks & a bit of a dance. The music selection could be more varied.

Tucked between Cibo and Zambrerro on Bank Street, this underground bar is Industrial decor at its best. Get there early and you could even nab 'The Loft'. Excellent range of spirits and a few cocktails on tap. They even do pizzas though we only dropped...More

After going down a dark black staircase under Bank and Hindley St, I was NOT expecting to find a bar I'd expect to find in NYC, Chicago or London. This place was a TOTAL surprise! Drink list is extensive and the ambiance and vibe were...More
