Best of Canberra – Cocktails

Sophia Carlini 14 January 2015 12


Anyone that knows me, knows that my favourite Thursday night activity is drinking cocktails with friends. Actually, it doesn’t even have to be a Thursday night, it’s just a thing I love to do. There is something so sexy and cool about putting on red lipstick and your new favourite dress and just sitting at the bar with a friend or two, gossiping over margaritas.

I tend to frequent the same venues, so often, the bartenders know my name … they even give me extra cherries without me having to ask.

It’s probably time to shake it up a little, so this week I want to know, where can I find Canberra’s best cocktails?

New bar in Belco – 54 Benjamin – has pretty awesome house cocktails and a great welcoming vibe.

Polit Bar here. Many thanks to y’all! And yes, we do Harvey Wallbangers and even Fluffy Ducks (very out of fashion, we know, but lots of fun…)

While not a habitual ‘rager’, I did enjoy few cocktails and mocktails at Jamie’s (Civic) at a special night out recently . . . the blueberry and basil smash was a highlight.

I’ve noticed the Chisholm Vikings have a cocktail menu up. Regret canna remember what types, but I know Harvey Wallbangers weren’t on it.

Has anyone seen a place making Harvey Wallbangers ? I seem to remember they were in a few places in the early 80’s. The Lakeside Friday evening joint used to knock em up.

Good topic! I rate the basement bar at A. Baker and Polit in Manuka. They know their stuff.
