Drinking & Nightlife

The cities offer an ever-expanding cast of cool coffeehouses and bars serving sharply chosen wines, craft beers and cocktails. There's also no shortage of super-casual pubs and dive bars, plus plenty of alfresco terraces during the warmer months. Things are more subdued in the smaller regional towns, but it's usually possible to find a half-decent coffee and/or local microbrew if you know where to look.
