The Bank Street Social promises to be the hippest, coolest bar around, if their pre-opening party was anything to go by. Situated in the heart of Hindley st with a small entry door next to Zambrero, the new nightclub is a welcome addition to Adelaide's thriving bar scene

The former Indian restaurant and neglected basement has been transformed into a warm, rustic 240m2 space that can accommodate up to 120 patrons.

Young business partners Shaun, Simon and Tom were inspired by the American prohibition-era 'speakeasy' type establishments. The interior features vintage lighting, exposed brickwork, chesterfield style booth seating and fixtures mostly sourced from the US. Exposed air conditioning ducts and pipework add to the 'industrial' feel of the place.

The venue operates mainly as a bar.. There is indeed no kitchen but there will be a selection of locally supplied food including cold meats, bread, dips, olives, almonds, dried fruit and cheese. If the food is as good as that at the pre-opening party, then it should be delicious! Music will be supplied by live DJ's.

The Bank Street Social is unashamedly very exclusive; limited membership is by invitation only, or by recommendation from an existing member. This club won't be luring punters with cheap drinks, but will be more about networking and building a community of local professionals. Cocktail evenings, tasting nights with local winemakers and brewers, and tickets to future live music events will be available to members.
