Adelaide Nightlife

There's something going on every evening in Adelaide, although clubs are especially packed on weekends. Cover charges vary according to the night and time of entry. Nightlife for the coming week is listed in "Adelaide (Scene)," a pull-out section of Thursday's edition of the Advertiser. Rip It Up is a free Thursday music-and-club publication aimed at the younger market. Onion, published

fortnightly on Thursday, is Adelaide's top dance music magazine. dB, a twice-monthly free independent publication, covers music, arts, film, games, and dance.

Bars along Rundle Street, the west end of Hindley Street, and Gouger Street are trendy, while Hindley and Waymouth streets are lined with traditional pubs. North Adelaide's O'Connell Street buzzes every night, and the popular Sunday-evening beer-and-banter sessions really pack in the crowds. There are also a number of vibrant pubs on The Parade at Norwood and the Glenelg precinct, especially popular on a Sunday afternoon in the sun.
