    This event has passed Register

    Event description

    Explore the history of Adelaide pubs that were once vibrant bustling places but are now silent witnesses to the past. Known as the city of churches, Adelaide has also been described as the city of pubs. Hear captivating tales of bookmakers, larrikins, publicans, and police from pubs that no longer echo with the sound of bar chatter and clinking glasses. They no longer emit the smell of stale beer and cigarette smoke and are no longer run by bar staff with a raised eyebrow. Join us as we unveil the untold stories behind Adelaide's past drinking haunts.
