Rooftop bars in Adelaide

Combine the stars above, with city lights below, a cool breeze blowing and a dash of alcohol. Serve over ice and you’ve got the recipe for a perfect night at one of Adelaide’s fabulous rooftop bars.


Located on the corner of King William and North Terrace on one of Adelaide’s most iconic buildings, 2KW offers breathtaking views across the River Torrens to the Adelaide Oval and beyond. Choose from a variety of areas to relax, each with their own vibe. Enjoy a bite to eat or a cocktail while you chill out to the sound of the DJ.

The Gallery

The original rooftop bar in Adelaide, The Gallery is spread over two levels, filled with amazing art. Located on corporate Waymouth Street, it’s a great place to start your night after a hard day’s work.

The Cathedral Hotel

Built in 1860, the Cathedral Hotel has respectfully been brought into the 21st century, complete with a fabulous rooftop bar. More like a beer garden thanks to the working woodfired pizza oven, you can relax with friends while you admire the views of St Peters Cathedral, the Adelaide Oval and River Torrens.

Nineteen Ten (Mr Minsky’s)

You wanted something different – you’ll find it at Nineteen Ten, otherwise known as Mr Minsky’s Burlesque and Jazz Club. This speakeasy-inspired emporium of entertainment features jazz bands, burlesque entertainment and one heck of a cocktail menu. Oh, and did we mention the pool?!

Rocket Bar and Rooftop

One of the hippest venues in the city, the Rocket Bar and Rooftop has a 60s Hawaiian vibe, with panoramic views along Adelaide’s lively Hindley Street. With a seasonal cocktail list, boutique beers and spirits list, this place will quickly rocket to the top of your list of places to be!

Florence Rooftop Bar

If you’re looking for a slice of Europe, you’ll find it at Florence Rooftop Bar, located above Kaffana in Gilbert Place. With long tables, comfy chairs and vertical gardens, you’ll be transported to another place.

Hennessy Rooftop Bar

Sleek and sophisticated, the Hennessy Rooftop Bar raises the bar to a new level (the 13th  floor actually!). 

An experience like no other, Hennessy provides premium drinks, cocktails and champagnes to be enjoyed in the glass top alfresco terrace. Life music or DJs add to the atmosphere. A smart dress code applies, so dress to impress. Please note: Hennessy is often booked for private functions, so we recommend checking the website for details.
