    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...

    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!

  • Christchurch Casino

    Christchurch Nightlife

    Although New Zealand has a gambling problem, and we must hear and read every now and then how horrible it is to go to a casino, I quite like the Christchurch Casino. For those who are no gambling addicts it is ok to go there, and it is much more than gambling. In fact we mostly go there not for gambling at all but for lunch and dinner. They have...

    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...

    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...

  • Welsh Dragon Bar

    Wellington Nightlife

    The Welsh Dragon Bar is located on an island between Cambridge Tce and Kent St in a what was once a public toilet. It was a toilet stop for the trams and plays on both Welsh culture and former building purpose with their motto - "come in for a leek". I met Craic and Kiwi here for the start of a pub crawl and it was very quiet indeed - lots on...

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...

  • 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.

  • The Thistle Inn

    Wellington Nightlife

    The Thistle Inn is an interesting place to visit for an evening drink. It's history begins in 1840, where it stood very near to the waterfront until land was reclaimed in 1876 pushing the foreshore further away. Check out the photos on the wall, depicting this. Some photos from early years and comparisons with how things are now. There is a lot of...

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...

  • The Elephant & Wheelbarrow

    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.

  • City Views at Night

    Christchurch Nightlife

    Not much about it really, but THE square in town. The cathedral is beautiful and well worth a visit. At night, even in mid-winter, when this picture was taken, there's lots of people out there. Souvenir shops, Internet cafes, Starbucks, the Visitor's Centre, restaurants...well, I guess, it simply is THE place to start your tour of Christchurch....

    Being only 3 hours drive from Sydney and having a population of less than 400,000, blockbuster shows and events do not come to Canberra and 'seasons' for what does come are measured in days rather than weeks, months or years. That said Canberra is an affluent place and for Australia very culturally aware. Accordingly it hosts numerous art...

    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...

    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.

    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

    Dux de Lux is Latin for Masters of the Finest and they keep up their name especially with their beer. The Dux is good for both a bite to eat and place to meet and has been around since 1978.

    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...

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...
