Posted on

Dancing is on the menu, bay-bee and we know a place (or six) to get your boogie on…

Our favourite Latin dancing venue is back! Get your salsa on every Tuesday from 6.30pm with a free taster class, followed by a paid class and then social dancing from 8 pm. Thirsty after shaking your booty all night long? They’ll also be serving up $15 mojitos from 4 pm till late.

And of course, if you’d like to shake your booty on the weekend, you can expect their usual fun flair and good music. Let’s dance.

If you feel the need to belt out your best Wham! song or practice your moonwalk, we know just the place. 88MPH is THE place for karaoke in Canberra, and once you are warmed up, you can hit the dance floor and try to keep up with the flashing lights beneath your feet.

When your energy flags, it’s time for pizza and more cocktails. Did someone say Duran Duran?



From concerts to club nights, exhibitions, theatre, live art and innovative performances, Fiction Club pushes boundaries in terms of Canberra’s sedate image.

There’s a steady stream of live acts to book into and DJs who will transport you into the early hours of the morning. There’s also space to let loose if you so choose.

Mooseheads is a nightclubbing rite of passage for most young Canberrans and always guarantees a party.

Stay upstairs for music that’s old but gold, top 40, dance, R&B, and more. Or head downstairs for pool tables, a foosball table and the ultimate mix of rock, old and new school tunes.


Zoo Bar

Here’s a venue promising to meet every need. There’s a bar and grill to start, a gala event zone, the Hustler Pool Hall, the No Vacancy Cocktail Lounge, and the rooftop Mile High nightclub.

There’s also a sizeable food menu to keep you sated. Dare we suggest a bar crawl without leaving the building?


Knightsbridge Penthouse

‘Knighty’ as it’s affectionately known, is a chameleon of a bar that manages to blend relaxed lounge and late-night vibes with aplomb.

Head there earlier in the evening for perfectly blended cocktails and watch as it transforms into a RnB and ‘old school’ dance party as the night progresses.
