The Howling Owl Review
New east end cafe The Howling Owl has officially taken flight with the opening of its beer, wine and cocktail service on Friday and Saturday nights.
As well as being a nice little nook to get coffees and gourmet rolls during the daylight hours, at night The Howling Owl will stand as Adelaide’s first speciality gin bar, serving a range of cocktails tailored to their expansive range of local, interstate and international gins. The KIS gin from Kangaroo Island goes down a treat in the ‘Sylvan Berry Gin Fizz’ with local sylvan berry jam, muddled basil leaves and soda whereas a cucumber, cracked black pepper and lime gimlet with botanical-rich Hendricks also goes down a treat.
Make sure to poke your head in one weekend to see the Owl in its new nocturnal habitat.

Put together by the same hospitality legends behind Un Caffe Bar and East Terrace Continental, Public is a new cafe, bar and function space on Franklin St that’s been quick to join the ever-growing league of upper class, hip eateries like Press* and Udaberri. With a mix of ‘old and new’…
Planet 13? Plant 18? The Plant? This new Bowden eatery complex has heard lots of incorrect variations of its name, but for the record it’s called Plant 13 and it’s fantastic.
Despite an initial offer of a shopfront on Rundle St, Plant 13 has made the right decision and nestled…
I would have told you about this scrumptious little gem earlier but I’ve been too busy sitting at the bar getting to know the food and cocktail menus… intimately. It is bars like this that show we are no longer living in the shadow of the eastern states. Warm, sophisticated,…
