Great gin selection (even one with ants in it :)). Very friendly barkeepers, although one of them had too many open buttons on his shirt... not too easy to find (only a black door that leads to the underground bar).

We were told about this place by the staff at Maybe Mae and we were impressed by it. There selection of alcohol is very wide and we had an interesting time sipping gins and whisky. Well worth a visit.

Good place to have a couple (or a few) drinks with friends. Interesting atmosphere & decor underground. Couple comfy reservable areas with big tables and seating for big groups, so if you plan a night out with a dozen people, reserve one. Extensive drinks menu,...More

Visited the BSS bar as part of Foodi's Craft beer tour of Adelaide (which is highly recommended). You could so easily walk past the entrance without realising what an amazing bar lurks down the stairs. Awesome atmospheric venue, huge range of drinks (beers/wines/spirits) to chose...More

Don’t let the tiny black door fool you, this place is awesome. Great atmosphere, excellent staff and they know how to make a proper Disaronno sour. We will certainly be visiting again.

Situated in the West side of town, Bank Street Social is one of many watering holes that add to the Adelaide nightlife. What sets them apart perhaps, then, is the $10 pizzas on Friday nights. The entrance to the bar is a very nondescript black...More

Nicola is the best but she doesn’t actually know any astronauts. She mixes the best drinks. Thanks to Dave H for finding this place.

I must admit this place was a little hard to find, but its absolutely amazing once your inside. Ambiance is fantastic. They had a $10 pizza special so we tried all the 4 pizzas they had on offer & they were delicious. (Not sure if...More

Went on a Saturday night after a tasty dinner elsewhere in the area. Really good selection of spirits, was drinking vodka & soda water which was fine, until you don't specify the type of vodka you want. They just give you the cheap stuff, but...More

This is a nice bar to come to for drinks & a bit of a dance. The music selection could be more varied.
