Drinking & Nightlife

Australians enjoy a drink almost as much as they like to go out with friends – a winning combination if you're looking for nightlife. Pubs are the reliable workhorses of the drinking-and-nightlife scene, but slick nightclubs and classy wine-bars serving craft beers and world-class wines are now as much a part of Australian life as Fosters or XXXX. Venues with great views and/or open-air beer gardens provide the perfect Aussie backdrop to quench your thirst.
