Five Star Vagabond

Super travel tips, all road tested by David Herd. I'm an Australian guy who moved to Thailand in 2011 & still travel the world as often as possible.

Cos in Leigh St

Leigh Street Adelaide Leigh Street Adelaide and the neighbouring Peel St are two very trendy restaurant areas in the heart of Adelaide. The after work crowd flock here to spin their stories and pose for the crowd.

Terrific terrine at Cos

This was an excellent entree at Cos restaurant in the city of Adelaide.

Clever little Tailor is the catchy name of this Peel St wine bar which seems to cater for the local trendies. :)

Certainly not dedicated followers of fashion here.

My red wine was $16 per glass which is quite a shock for a guy like me who lives in Thailand. That equates to about B400 which is more than a Five Star hotel would charge in Bangkok.

Leigh St AdelaideLeigh St is next to Peel St & both have some very nice restaurants & bars.

Peel St Adelaide Old stone building in Peel St, both Peel & Leigh streets run between Hindley St Currie.

Leigh St Adelaide Two things have contributed to the popularity of these two streets. The conversion of Leigh Street to a traffic-free al fresco dining area, with beautifully restored buildings and trendy new bars; plus the state government’s new small bar licence, which has fast-tracked licensing for bars with a capacity of under 120 people and made the process much, much cheaper.

This is not the Franklin Hotel

Hindley St Adelaide On the corner of  Leigh & Hindley Streets “The Little Pub” is only an eleven minute walk to the Franklin Hotel which offers very good accommodation. Book through this link for a great rate.

Thanks for visiting my Leigh Street Adelaide photo blog. In my opinion Adelaide is one of the most liveable cities in Australia.
