CROWN & ANCHOR HOTEL
A notorious live music haunt in Adelaide's east end, the Cranka remains one of the best loved rock venues in the city.
These days you're just as likely to stumble across an acoustic act crooning a capacity crowd as you are to find The Bennies tearing them a new one, but the 200-capacity band room retains that old school Cranka vibe.
If you ask an Adelaide local to name their favourite pub in the city, many of them will respond with The Exeter. The Rundle Street hotel has lost none of its old world charm and remains one of the most popular watering holes in the CBD.
With a tradition of hosting live music in its front bar, The Exeter also offers its atrium beer garden as an alternative space for 100 or so punters. Most recently Bad//Dreems and The Peep Tempel have played sold out shows on this unique stage. A mid-week curry is also highly recommended.

The Adelaide UniBar is an institution among students and music heads alike, with a long and revered history of live music in its unique, fifth-storey setting. Big enough to house 500 punters, the bar atop Union House has seen of the biggest names in music history pass through its doors (Silverchair, Jebediah, Something For Kate).
In recent years it has hosted the likes of Two Door Cinema Club, The Drums, Parkway Drive, Violent Soho and Megan Washington on their way to the top.
'The Fat Man' has made quite the splash since opening in his doors in November 2015. Opening night saw Tame Impala pop in for a DJ set, while other guests at the dynamic club/live music space in its short life span have included The Preatures, San Cisco, Hudson Mohawke, Flight Facilities, Dune Rats, Nina Las Vegas and many, many more.
Operating as both a live music venue and club and suitable for 300-600 capacity shows, Fat Controller is quickly proving itself as one of the most unique and popular venues in the country.
