A nice little mall trapped in time with interesting shops amidst the modern malls around. If you want to see a place with nice unique decor, this is definitely a place to visit.

It’s a nice arcade decorated for Christmas. There is a small museum, where we could hear the polka that was played at the opening of the arcade many years ago.

I came here a few weeks ago as part of the free walking tour in Adelaide, the guide took us to this place, the arcade, it is very tidy, clean and has very unique shops, although it's not my scene. Still I admire the arcade,...More

While Adelaide arcade could do with a teensy bit more TLC, it is still a worthwhile place to visit. I came through for lunch at Two Bit Villains and was rewarded with some stunning architecture on my way up. There is a series of museum...More

Interesting indoor outdoor street. Shopping like it once was before shopping malls. Well restored but at the end of the day it is still just a shopping street. Certainly worth keeping and seeing but I wouldn't make a special trip to see it.

Went into the Arcade from Grenfell Street - it's been beautifully restored - everything looks perfect for the era involved - even the floor looks great. Wandered through - all the retail outlets seem to be suited to the place. One of our party is...More

This a historical arcade spans Grenfell to Rundle Street and was built in the mid-1880's and the site of two prior fires. It is a beautiful old and historical building but the shops do not do it full justice which probably reflects the economic reality...More
