In the heart of Rundle St, a stone's throw away from the lively Rundle Mall, resides The Elephant. One look at the old, red Telephone booth on your way in lets you know that it is a British pub; one with character, at that. Everything from the windowsills to the booths is made of old dark wood; chipped away from years of laughing over a pint.
Downstairs oozes British charm and wit with British paraphernalia plastering the walls. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual, home to a comfortable lounge boasting a rather large TV on the wall; the perfect place to enjoy a laugh over the soccer (if your team is winning, of course).
However, The Elephant's real appeal is the beer. Host to many local and imported brews, The Elephant has everything from your local West End, to your English Bombardier. Whether you wish to stick to what you know or want to try something a little different, The Elephant will have a beer to suit your mood.
If you migrate to the bar upstairs, the atmosphere changes again. Every Friday and Saturday night, The Elephant is home to a different live band. Playing intermittently with a DJ, it is easy to mistake this friendly British pub with a modern club.
I love going to the Elephant, it is one of the few places in the city that I actually go. I just find it has a fun dance floor, but also great casual places to chat. I also find that the bar staff are always really friendly.
Overall I just find it a great place to head with friends on a weekend, and I love that is is sort of tucked away off Rundle Street.
