Canberra Cocktail Bar Directory

20131228-134423.jpgThere’s nothing worse than being thirsty for a Martini in this town.

So this list might be handy. It has most of the reliable cocktail bars around town where I think you should, the planets and bar staff permitting, get a decent cocktail.

CAVEAT: Apologies in advance for any errors in the list, and if I’ve missed someone, please let me know. This list is not an endorsement of a particular bar- just a reference for you.
