Why live in Canberra unless you’re going to utilise our iconic buildings for the utmost important ritual of Friday night drinks? Yep, that’r right, Old Parliament House (OPH) are bringing back their spring courtyard drinks. Come Friday 12 October you’ll be counting down the hours and rounding up the gang for afterwork drinks each week. Be sure to get there early, happy hour is from 4.30-5.30pm offering $5 house wine + beer. At OPH you can escape the riff-raff in the city and relax with a drink in hand at one of our City’s landmarks.

OPH has mastered a dream of an afternoon running every Friday throughout daylight savings. Whether you use the time and exclusive space for treating a client, extending an invite to colleagues or a cocktail catchup with the girls; Friday nights at OPH keep it classy while setting the scene for the entire weekend.

The drink offerings will excite. Expect frozen margarita’s, Aperol Spritz and Pimm’s on weekly rotations, and spirit carts to roll by while you take in the sunset as background beats set the tone. Nibble on antipasto, calamari, king prawns and much more. As the night goes on treat yourself to cute ice-creams or the popcorn machine.

We have VIP Experiences to giveaway to two winners and three of their lucky friends. Start the evening off at 4.30pm in the renowned Members Bar which has hosted the  most important people in Parliament. Here you will share history while sipping the infamous Menzies martini which was served from the same bar where the man himself was known to mix large jugs of martini. Indulge in free drink and food for an hour before spending the rest of the night in the beautiful courtyard.
