The Tourism Australia website has released a ‘Fact Sheet’ on Canberra’s Bar Scene. Apparently, the greatest compliments one can pay to Canberra bars are that Honkytonks has “Melbourne-like chic interiors” and the Kremlin Bar is “a busy nightspot for hip young things”. No mention of whether the bars were chosen for the listing based on their merits or by paying for the advertisement.
Anyway, there’s a few interesting-sounding bars listed here, and if nothing else it does make Canberra sound like it has a thrilling nightlife. Any comments from people with first-hand experience as to how accurate these descriptions are?
