Leigh Street

Leigh Street connects two of Adelaide's busiest streets, Hindley and Currie, and is a one way, traffic free, cobble stone street packed full of character laden and heritage buildings with links to the history of Adelaide and South Australia.

By day, Leigh Street is a popular thoroughfare for city workers, university students, locals and tourists. Cafes and restaurants sprawl their tables and chairs onto the pavement and are packed for for coffee in the morning, lunch at midday and a drink in the afternoon. Iconic retailers, barbers and businesses, some of who have been on Leigh Street for 40 years, make up the rest.

By night, Leigh Street is a popular haunt for its well-known bar scene. Small and intimate wine and cocktail bars sit side-by-side all the way down the street, working with each other to create the perfect bar hopping destination.

The Fountain has had many homes since it was first cast in the late 1880s and currently resides adjacent to the entrance of Adelaide Arcade.
