About us


On January 24, 2023 this bar opened to the public with the name A Social Undertaking at our door.   The name is a play on words as the owner and many of the team work or have worked within the funeral industry in Adelaide. 

It is our privilege to serve the people of Adelaide during the day as dedicated funeral workers and by night as enthusiastic cocktail makers.  A Social Undertaking is on many levels a place to get away from life and death for a few hours, over a drink and good conversation. 

We offer internationally known classics as well as our own signature cocktails.  With a wide selection of Beer, Wine, Spirits and Cocktails, we are perfect for a night out. Our friendly staff are always on hand to help you find the perfect drink.

We also offer late night bar snacks in the way of pizzas.  Just ask nicely and we will cook for you!

Board Games, Card Games and Weird Games.

Armed with such favorites as Uno, Connect Four, Boggle and 80's classic Hedbanz,

Come and have a drink with us and challenge your friends.

Records are back

We have invested in 240 really bad records and a whole lot of great classics.  We play them usually on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights.  You are welcome to bring your own records in and share the love of vinyl.
