Canberra's most awarded family
owned real estate agency

A great week for the pubs…

By Ntp 6 August 2007 22

In a sting of media releases from the AFP we can see what was a less that stirling week for a couple of nightspots around town.

First up The-Venue in Erindale had two laptops and their takings stolen on Thursday night. as this occurred the morning after the Hoodoo Gurus’ gig this would be especially painful for the owners.

Next and also down on the southside we have a cowardly and violent assault at 2am Saturday morning inside PJ’s in Greenway. No assault is good but sconing someone from behind is a particularly low act.

To wrap up this trifecta we have a hit and run outside the Irish Club in Weston, again at 2am on Saturday morning.

In all cases “Police would urge anyone who may have seen the incident or may have seen the vehicle in question to contact Crime Stoppers by email at or toll free by phone on 1800 333 000.”

I think something to do with some Canberra clubs having the cheapest drinks in the country.

Also if ’some’ of the civic cops who are on the beat at night actually did their job Civic might be a diffrent place at night. Oh some of the times I wish I had ACA behind the corner.

As for the southside nightspots.. Been there done that and they are just as worse as hanging out at the Civic interchange at 4am on a friday morning

hk0reduck well said, I am hoping to see improvements as soon as this weekend.

As for the crowd we are attracting and it being more or less volatile, it is really very hard to say. Anyone can tell you that Canberra in general has become more volatile, just look at civic’s track record in the last two years. However this is the exception not the rule at The Venue. Because of the wide variety of entertainment we are offering it is becoming popular with all ages. Pool comps tuesday thursdays, Museos jam session tuesday nights(free entry). Independant band night thursday(free entry) Friday after work drinks. Jazz in the cocktail bar before ten pm on saturday(free entry), Sunday Venue Blues Session from 7pm Sunday(free entry again). We are offering something for everyone, and building a live music scene in the heart of the south.

It is just a shame that the occasionally trouble makers steal the limelight.
