Fodor's Expert Review Grace Emily Hotel
A classic old-school pub, bartenders spout the mantra "no pokies, no TAB, no food"—pokies are the poker machines found in many pubs, and TAB, Australia's version of OTB, lets you place bets on horse races—at this music-lover's watering hole. Entertainment comes in the form of consistently excellent live music including a legendary Monday open mic night that's been running for two decades. The beer garden is one of the city's best, with secluded spots for those wanting a quiet tipple and larger tables for groups to drink en masse and alfresco. In 2017 the pub was inducted into the South Australian Music Hall of Fame, recognizing its unique commitment to live music culture.
