Adelaide Aquatic Centre
The closest pool to the city, with indoor swimming and diving pools, and the usual gym, sauna and spa stuff.
An 1881 Irish pub without a whiff of kitsch Celtic cash-in: just great Guinness, open fires, acoustic music and a house-sized pepper...
IGA North Adelaide
Look for the nifty deli/butcher counter out the front.

Lonely Planet review
Winning pub grub at this enduring (and endearing) local: steak sangers, vegie lasagne, lamb-shank pie, eggs Florentine and French toast with maple syrup (not all at once). Quirky retro vibe; live jazz/indie-rock Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
