Kitsch and confined backstreets ripe for exploration
A short walk down George St in the kitsch and confined back streets of Thebarton proves a salivating experience. For those who haven't ventured far from the tree, the free tram that runs the gamut from South Terrace to some of Adelaide's biggest entertainment spaces, just so happens to cross paths with some of the best small (and let's not forget unique) venues Adelaide has to offer.

The Deli café has become a renowned hotspot for the eclectic and sports a great conversational menu beginning with the share platters. I couldn't recommend a better way to begin your evening; everyone is included with clearly marked vegan and gluten free options and the house made dips are both rustic and riled with flavour. Combine with a LOBO Apple Cider and friendly service for best results.

A skip and a hop across the road is the Wheatsheaf Hotel. Now, if you don't carry a penchant for the botanical byproducts of the beer, wine & whiskey varieties, this may not be the place for you. The 'Wheaty' unashamedly comes with one of the most extensive beer menus, in easy to browse format by both maker and variety. The taps rotate regularly so are unlikely to be the same on each visit, and the knowledgeable bar staff are always willing to share their expertise. If the bar is busy there is always the curiosity of an art-exhibition opposite, and talented musicians performing out the back.

Don't forget to check the 'food truck' calendar to see who might be visiting with a delectable late-evening snack.
