  • Pavement cafes and Irish-themed pubs are what drive the nightlife of Canberra. One of the first places to check out is King O'Malley Irish Pub. Large, warm and inviting, just like a real Irish pub, this popular bar lays claim to having an authentic Irish barman. Friendly, busy and noisy, this is a great place to party. Guinness and other Irish beers flow freely and guests savor the delicious fare on the menu. Live music on most nights only adds to the popularity and fun quotient of this place.

    For more of a chatty atmosphere, visit The Phoenix. Patrons visit The Phoenix for a few laughs over drinks. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, and occasionally there is live music, including traditional Irish folk music. This is a simple and unpretentious pub, always filled to the brim with loyal patrons. The choice of beer here is quite extensive, and with a regular range of spirits and a small selection of cocktails. The Guinness on-tap is almost as good as in Ireland.

    For some serious dancing and partying, head on to ICBM & Insomnia. Insomnia has become a standard Saturday night spot for many trendy nightclub-goers. The décor is glam and classy with mood lighting and sleek furniture. The clientele, decked out in sparkling tops and stiletto heels, are here to dance until dawn. As well as being a popular dance venue, playing a fun combination of popular and hard-core dance music, Insomnia has cleverly marketed each night of the week to a different crowd. As the capital of Australia, there is no shortage of frolicking to be had in Canberra.
