    Sydney Nightlife

    We got to see two sides of Ryan's in the matter of just a few hours. We were to meet up with friends at 530 one evening and happened to be near so went to check it out early. We sat there in the back in one of the round booths just chilling and having a drink enjoying a break. Nice. Quiet. Comfortable. After running out for pizza we came back and...

  • Northbridge

    Perth Nightlife

    Perth nightlife is growing as the population grows and the WA boom means people are looking for more places to spend their money. When i went in 2001, i hung out mainly in Northbridge, the main backpacker area and where the main concentration of bars was. Back then there wasnt much in the CBD. But in 2013, it had changed - there were now bars all...

    Gold Coast Nightlife

    Although I have put the Casino in as one of the nightlife tips, like all casinos it is open for business 24 hours/7 days a week, but it is at night when Jupiters comes to life. Jupiters Casino is the only licensed casino on the Gold Coast and is a resort casino with a host of facilities from gambling rooms to entertainment, leisure and fine...

    The Stag usually has a good band on Friday and Saturday nights in their downstairs bar area. With no covercharge and casual attire permitted, its a great place to go for a night out! Upstairs has a DJ playing 'doof doof' and techno music in case you are into that. No requirements, but always best to be safe by not wearing thongs or sneakers....

    Canberra Nightlife

    A night at the Mawson club was supposed to be a special event. Visting from Sydney we were not permitted entry to the club unless we were signed in by a member. We had to become members for this one occasion. We believe this is not the same as Sydney and other States where a visitor may sign in as a visitor provided they can prove they live outside...

    The Eureka (pronounced U-ree-kah), is a mainstream kind of place. The music they play is top 20 (so mainly pop and R'n B), there is a dance floor, pool tables and big screen TVs (that often show sports: footy, soccer, etc.). Its 2 stories, but the 2nd floor isn't always open. It has an easy going atmosphere. More of a club for people 18-25yrs...

    Hobart Nightlife

    Wrest Point was the very first legal casino in Australia and held the only casino licence for many years. Now there are many all over Australia but no visit to Hobart would be complete without a gamble at this, slightly tired, Hobart landmark. Its about the only place thats open 24 hours a day. No jeans or trainers but I don't think you need a...

    Sydney Nightlife

    We were in Darling Harbour for Santa Fest and the Fireworks display on a Saturday. We decided to stop in here for some drinks solely due to their outdoor seating and the view of the Harbour. We found a nice table outside after playing some musical tables and planted ourselves here to have the optimal view of the festivities. The bar was pretty...

    Perth Nightlife

    Durty Nelly’s is a traditional Irish Pub that my wife and I happened upon during one of our city walks. I found it funny that there is a Durty Nelly's in Perth; there is one back home that a friend of mine frequents. The Pub has an outdoor terrace and inside there are several seating areas for dining as well as bar seating. It was a bit hot outside...

    The Gold Coast is the place to party. Surfers Paradise is a tourist mecca with lots happening all the time. Coolangatta comes alive too. The theatre restaurants are good for a laugh as well. There's one at Broadbeach called Draculas. Food and show are included in the price and it's near the Casino as well.

  • North Terrace venues

    Adelaide Nightlife

    The Cavern Club on North Terrace. Adelaide has some great music venues, but this isn't one of them. Drinks are overpriced, service is slow, there's no drinks on tap, so you have to buy the expensive beers. The men's toilets are a joke.

    Gosh!!! I love this place, this is one of the best bars in Sydney, really!!! Though the frontdoor guards are a lil' scary and the people inside are a lil' rude, loud and flirty, it's still my favorite place anyway. Scruffy Murphy's can light up your night like no other places; Live bands, people carryin' pitchers around, getting to talk with...

  • Dining Out

    Canberra Nightlife

    Both Manuka and Kingston are two of the best spots to get something to eat and catch some music. Plenty of streetside dining choices for all tastes and budgets. Manuka is a bit more upmarket but neither area will break the bank if you check out the prices. Casual works well

We first came here in 2010 and now we find...

    Perth Nightlife

    The Subiaco Hotel is a favourite with the locals. Best Venue on a Friday night or whenever the Football is on. This place is packed so it's best to get there before 7pm. Most people go after work for social gatherings as Friday is the most popular. You can stand around the bar, play pool, listen to music, or stand in the outdoor area that fills...

    Yes Queenslanders do call them pots (apparently!). Better get used to some pretty bizaare terminology if you are planning a trip to these parts. I've attached a website to assist you with this. Casual is fine.

    Sydney Nightlife

    Our lovely friend Laura took us here to hang out with some of her friends on our arrival night in February 2010. We were told it was the "pub"; not exactly. It's more of a club with a bunch of different rooms with live music and food. It appears that the place almost segregates itself by age: one section is for the teenagers(some looked 14), one...

    Sydney Nightlife

    Sydney is graced with many stylish bars, yet few match the finesse of Kinsela's Middlebar. The sophisticated interior is reminiscent of the uninhibited opulence of a glamorous LA lounge, and is one of the few inner city venues that offers an outside space to enjoy a Sydney sunset and drink. This is probably one of the hippest bars in Sydney right...

    This bar/restaurant is located directly across from Bondi Beach and has good views from the first floor level balconys. I have only been to Ravesi's on a Sunday night in October/November. It was so busy, but was nice to sit at the open windows and have a drink close to the beach. It has three levels. A 'cellar' bar on the lower ground level is...

    I find The Basement one of the coolest live music venues in Sydney. It really reminds me of an old European or New York style club. It's small, yet the atmosphere attracts are more sophisticated clientele. There are many tables available so you may sit and watch/listen to the band. You can also stand near the bar if you don't find a table. It can...

    This is probably one activity I wouldn't encourage. The StarCity Casino is housed in a huge entertainment centre where they have all sorts of restaurants, cafes, theatre and of course, the casino. I spent like AUD50 here and luckily I stopped because it was beginning to get addictive. My friends spent hundreds if not thousands here in one night...

It can get a little "rowdy" at night where the locals, other Sydneysiders and tourists...

    The Lord Nelson is one of those pubs built into an old building that really has a good feel about it. We came along to here on one of our last days in town. I was very comfortable and had I been able to find a beer I actually enjoyed I would have spent some time here. Being a microbrewery they have their own which for me don't measure up to what...

Dress to impress or you...
