    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...

    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...

    Adelaide Nightlife

    This is a tourist spot because it is located inside the former Adelaide Railway Station, an imposing heritage building right in the heart of the city. As a casino, expect the usual gambling dens full of table games and poker machines. There are pubs and restaurants that offer entertainment shows. Neat casual, but this is Australia where casual may...

    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...

    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 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...

    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.

    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...

    If you’re in the mood for masses of red velvet, stage theatre and strange characters parading around all night, then this is the place to head. This is very much the Moulin Rouge inspired destination to sip absinth and soak up the surroundings. Red, dark, heavy furnishings encumber the space while dancers dance and entertainers entertain. Fortune...

  • 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

    Had a great time in the Shooters Nightclub. After a few drinks tried another club but can't recall the name which was also good.

    If you hanker for good Trappist beer from Belgium, then go to this bar/cafe off East Rundle Street. It's hidden away, but it's pretty popular.

    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...

    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...

    Sydney Nightlife

    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.

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

    This is the new hotspot in Sydney for drinking/clubbing....in its initial hey day (a few decades ago), this was the 'IT' place to be seen.

Dress to impress or you...

    Sydney Nightlife

    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...

    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...
