The people who spend their Friday and Saturday nights on the Eastern end of the city are very quick to judge the other end of town.

I hear them say that Hindley Street is full of reckless young people who enter clubs with sticky floors and unbearably loud electronic music.

Except, when I make a visit to the West end, I'm bewildered at how much fun the patrons in venues are having.

The local and international artists making a mark in the HQ Complex, the drinks deals at the Little Pub, and the busy dance floor at Zhivago.

As you talk to the people in the West end, you'll find that they have some remarks to make about the community down the East. They say Rundle Street is full of snobs who are too happy to pay $20 for a drink than they should be.

Again, my eyes seem to witness a different story.

The groups of friends having a chat in the Elephant, the wonderful diversity of people in Mary's Poppin, and the live music at the Stag.

From all I have seen and heard, I can only really make one conclusion.

The worst club or bar in Adelaide is your own home.

You know the one you go to after you've bailed on your friends for a night out?

It's the bar in your kitchen where you have to pour your own drink.

It's the club in your bedroom that is lit up by your computer screen instead of LED lights.

There's just so much happening in Adelaide's nightlife (East and West!) - why would you want to miss it?
