Udaberri’s favourite drinks for winter

As the breeze down Leigh Street chills into the low teens, seek respite in Udaberri's cozy booths with some of their favourite winter comforters.

What was once a Flight Centre travel agent transformed more than seven years ago into Adelaide’s beachhead small bar, Udaberri.


11-13 Leigh Street, Adelaide 5000
Mon-Thu: 4pm ’til late
Fri-Sat: 11am ’til late
Sunday: 6pm ’til late

Great drinks, a hidden kitchen with great food and some of Adelaide’s best DJs all feature here.

In our winter print edition (out now, folks), the knowledgable Udaberri bartenders gave us their go-to drinks for keeping warm through Adelaide’s brisk mid-year months.



The Udaberri Boiler Maker

A Boiler Maker is the best way to plunge into winter and a butcher of Sierra Nevada stout plus a shot of Diplomatico rum will do nicely.


Calvados Brandy

It’s brandy over whisky this winter. If you haven’t had a Calvados yet – do. It’s that simple.


The Old Cuban

The Old Cuban is built in the image of a Dark and Stormy but with cava instead of cola. Delicate, zingy – delicious.


Hey Bartender

Jess Peele returned to Adelaide after three years in Melbourne’s hospitality scene to work with friends at Udaberri. Jess loves the bar’s lack of pretension and says it’s a people-centric place first and foremost.
