Movie Theater
“Palace Electric features eight stylish fully-licensed cinemas and a stunning Prosecco bar. Electric was recently presented with The People’s Choice Award for‘ ‘Canberra’s Favourite Entertainment Venue’, for the third year running. The cinema presents a high-quality program with a range of mainstream, independent, art-house, film festival and family films. Palace Electric is open seven days a week, from 10am – 10pm. One of my favourote things to do on the weekend after dinner is winding down with a movie at Palace. Booking ahead is usually essential on weekends”

Cafe
“You cannot go past this place for brunch and waiting in line is worth it, get a take away coffee around the side while you wait. Only thing missing is a Bloody Mary and Mimosa on the menu. ONA coffee - Raspberry Candy if you're wanting the best to start the day! ”

“This hidden gem is hard to find. You'll feel like you're being led into trouble as it's only accessible via a fire escape. Don't let the outside fool you....the stairs are worth it once you get inside as you'll find an amazing assortment of cocktails expertly made by the talented staff. Well worth a visit.”
