The civic

To start your night off, drop by The Civic and get stuck in to their selection of local and imported beers. After you've got something from the taps, head to the pool hall for a game with your mates or grab some pub grub and catch some sport on the big screen.


Bit of a beer snob? Pop over to Balthazaar for a drink in their stylish front bar. Home to a cracking selection of domestic and imported brews on tap, you'll have more than enough pale ales and pilsners to choose from. Prefer cocktails to craft beer? The bartenders here are happy to shake up the classics, from espresso martinis to godfathers.


Part pub, part nightclub, Mooseheads puts on some of the biggest parties in Canberra. To get amongst it, visit on Super Saturday and take advantage of happy hour specials in the nightclub or head upstairs to TopLevel, where you can kick back with a few drinks in the lounge.
