Vibe: Tropical Saturday nights. Climb the outdoor staircase to this airy, tropical Cuban-themed bar with aged rum cocktails. Grab a caipirinha and a seat on the balcony overlooking the trees of Alinga Street.

One of my favourite bars, with a Cuban prohibition era theme. Highly recommend the punch bowls and the charcuterie boards. Situated in the historic Melbourne Building.

“Monster Bar has become the poster child of Canberra ‘cool’. The main dining area is worth a visit. The menu is mostly share plates of local produce. Try to get a table near the fireplace. Reservations highly recommended”

Cafe
“Features a beautiful window of every-coloured desserts! Very laid-back Sunday family brunch feel with a playground and trees outside the cafe, with delicious food and all-day breakfast. We particularly love their K.F.C. Chicken Burger (lunch), grilled chicken sandwich (lunch), Haloumi Sliders (lunch), Breakfast Fritters (all-day), and their weekly specials! They also make amazing local coffee. :) Check out their Instagram: www.instagram.com/ricardoscafe”
