Brilliant bars

If it's a mood-lit hideaway with top-notch tipples that you're seeking, take a trip back in time and visit Lucky's Speakeasy at QT Canberra. Situated right in the heart of the city, the bar promises expertly made cocktails and a good night out.

Head just up the road and you'll stumble across another must-visit, The Highball Express. A colourful Cuban-themed bar with equal measures party and chill, at this trendy spot you can also master the art of mixology in a masterclass.

If you like your bars on the slightly grungy side, dive (again, pun intended) into Hippo Co. just up the road. With enough stag heads, timber panelling and red brick to keep Ron Swanson happy, this masterfully masculine bar offers whiskey tastings with a side of old-world charm. Nightcap, anyone?
