At 240 square metres and tucked deep underground, Bank Street Social is the latest addition to the downtown wine and bar district in the Adelaide CBD. Business partners Shaun Campbell, Simon Orders and Tom Paxton have designed a warm and cosy speakeasy complete with exposed brick, squishy Chesterfield-backed booths with plenty of space for large groups, hooded lighting and exposed pipes.
Thoughts from the opening night: world class fit-out, top-notch music, great drinks selection coupled with awesome vibe but awkward location of bathrooms (and not enough – if any – attention paid to matching the restrooms with design of bar interior). Overall a very exciting new place for Adelaide.
27 Bank Street, Adelaide
