The Howling Owl Review

Words by Jess Bayly October 31, 2012

New east end cafe The Howling Owl has officially taken flight with the opening of its beer, wine and cocktail service on Friday and Saturday nights.

As well as being a nice little nook to get coffees and gourmet rolls during the daylight hours, at night The Howling Owl will stand as Adelaide’s first speciality gin bar, serving a range of cocktails tailored to their expansive range of local, interstate and international gins. The KIS gin from Kangaroo Island goes down a treat in the ‘Sylvan Berry Gin Fizz’ with local sylvan berry jam, muddled basil leaves and soda whereas a cucumber, cracked black pepper and lime gimlet with botanical-rich Hendricks also goes down a treat.

Make sure to poke your head in one weekend to see the Owl in its new nocturnal habitat.
