Sit Back and Unwind at Capital & Co

23/02/2015 by Eileen Tang

Not just a bar for Rydges Capital Hill guests, Capital & Co offers a casual meeting place for Canberra locals – perfect for Friday night drinks or a week-day after work catch up. Settle into one of the comfy couches and enjoy some drinks and bites from the Unwind Menu. Available every Monday to Friday from 5:00pm to 7:00pm, the menu offers a range of drinks and snacks for only $5.00. If you’re after something more substantial than bar snacks, the Summer Menu from the Fig Tree Restaurant offers some great dishes to share with friends.


Before Too Long: Returning to Sage Dining Rooms

23/02/2015 by OutInCanberra

When was the last time you had a night at Sage Dining Rooms? If it’s been a little while, we certainly recommend you head back to the Gorman House favourite to see what the team has been up to between visits. While Sage is a great venue to celebrate a special occasion, it’s also a place where the constantly evolving menu means that there is always something surprising (and delicious!) that you won’t have seen before. The best news is a new five-course menu that showcases the exquisite skills of the Sage team.

23/02/2015 by Sarah Pritchard

I hope you survived the Multicultural Festival because Canberra is gearing up for another big outdoor experience. The Art, Not Apart festival will fill NewActon with artistic installation, performances, food and other events with an inclusive attitude that aims to stretch the boundaries of art. Canberra is getting creative this year on Saturday 14 March.


Sizzle and Spice at Debacle

16/02/2015 by Eileen Tang

With a quirky name and their 2-for-1 pizza nights, Debacle continues to be a staple favourite among Braddonites and other Northsiders. Having moved to a larger venue in the Mode 3 building and a recent change in management means things are fresh at this popular Braddon watering hole. Head chef Michael Lee has added an Asian influence to the menu, making the most of his brand-new industrial woks. New dishes including stir-fries, noodle soups, and rice dishes now feature on the Debacle menu.


Battle of the Bands at Transit Bar - Heat 1

16/02/2015 by Jen Taylor

Let’s be honest, it’s hard to know what to expect from a Battle of the Bands competition (like, will the entrants will be the type of bands that play solely in their garage, and perhaps stay there?). But Transit Bar knows music, and Heat 1 of their Battle of the Bands competition brought talent that was impressive to say the least. It was definitely a night that exceeded expectations.

Drink tea? Don’t mind if I do. In fact, if you’re looking for a direct translation for what yum cha means, well… that’s it. Now, what if you could grab a pot of tea as well as fresh and spicy flavours, right in the heart of the city? The good news is that Akiba has you covered. As anyone who has visited a yum cha restaurant knows, there’s a lot more to this amazing Southern-Chinese dining style than just tea.

Supersize Me! Dining at Smoque Woden

03/02/2015 by OutInCanberra

Smoque Woden is here, and those south of the lake are unanimous in their joy at seeing the Favourite Restaurant in the OutInCanberra People’s Choice Awards (two years running!) opening its second outlet. So what can you expect when heading to Canberra’s latest destination for delicious barbequed treats? Well, essentially it’s more of the same with a fresh new feel for lunch and dinner seven days a week. Oh, and then there’s breakfast as well (but more of that shortly)
