The fourth and most recent incarnation of the popular shipping container bar has a hipster-friendly emphasis on gin.

With twelve boutique gins available from the downstairs container bar, patrons can sip on a range of innovative juniper-licious concoctions in the venue’s outdoor Gin Garden or in the cosy mint-green confines of the upstairs container lounge.

Tropeano said, “The refreshed new look of Laneway IV will feel like you’ve entered the ultimate outdoor garden party, with a big focus on gin… Laneway IV will be known as THE place to get a delicious gin infused beverage.”

Despite its distinctly temporary, makeshift vibe, the ever-changing bar has made its permanent home, tucked away in a laneway off Hindley Street in Adelaide’s CBD.

When it opened, four seasons ago, the container haven became an instant hit with the locals.
