5 Places for Cocktails in Canberra

It’s only 3 days until the weekend, so we thought it was time to wrap up the 5 best places we love to visit for a delicious cocktail or two.

Take the stress out of deciding which bar to visit by following this handy little guide… and if you’re feeling really outgoing, perhaps you could try them all. Call it a cocktail crawl.


A must-try at Lazy Su is the Chai Espresso Martini – what legends! I mean, YUM!!! The fun & funky Asian Eating House in Braddon is to die for on the food and drinks front. The line up of Saki is enough to get you giddy, and then you should order a classic Negroni or the Tapioca Time Bubble Tea. Oh, and they have Espresso Martini’s on tap…

The upstairs Loft at The Duxton is always coming up with new things! Lately we’ve been lucky enough to get our hands on the Strawberry Sour & Coconut Mango Martini. The Frosé on tap is a real knock-your-socks-off choice too! Perfect for the warm nights.

Get your Tropicana vibes on at Kokomos before Summer is out. Our top picks from the cocktail menu is the Watermelon Margarita, Mango Weis Bar and the Honolulu Groove. The best part about Kokomos is that they have the food to match and a dance floor later on….

Highball offers an extensive list of fresh and fruit cocktails to match their vibe. Be transported by the Cuban inspired island Tiki bar and sip your worries away.

Our famous speakeasy, Molly is always pouring the best of the best. Here you can try a range of creations from the port & tequila based ‘Cartel Queen’ to a ‘Strange Kinda Woman’ using sweet figs & lemon with rich bourbon base.
