Africola Restaurant - East End

East End

Just east of Rundle Mall you'll find the 'East End', a bustling pocket of the Adelaide CBD packed with cafes, restaurants, bars and premium shopping.

Fashion boutiques such as Zimmerman, Jack London and Gorman fill some of Adelaide's oldest buildings. For close to a century, the iconic retailer Miss Gladys Sym Choon has been a landmark of the East End and has continued to evolve with the changing tides of fashion.

The former Adelaide Fruit and Produce Exchange now houses wine bars, upmarket restaurants and eclectic boutiques.

Head east a little further and you'll find yourself in some of Adelaide's best green spaces. Wander through the rose gardens, row through the Rymill Park / Murlawirrapurka Lake, give lawn bowls a go or pack a picnic and cook a barbie on one of the many free-to-use barbecues.

If you're feeling up to catching a mainstream, arthouse or independent film, don't forget to visit Palace Nova East End Cinemas.

Thanks to a change in South Australia's liquor licensing laws just over 5 years ago, Peel Street has gone from an empty laneway serving as nothing more than a thoroughfare between busy Hindley and Currie Street, to a street that comes alive at night, packed with diners and drinkers.
