Summer Sesh Spots in Canberra

Dec 8, 2017  ·  3 min read

Summer has officially hit, which means warm evenings and longer weekends are officially upon us. If you’re as excited as we are, you’ll be eager to dive into our ultimate list of Sunday session spots around the capital.


Located in the heart of Canberra’s bustling nightlife hub, it’s no surprise that Hopscotch has remained a regular favourite for so many Canberrans. The outdoor alfresco area is perfect for those long summer nights, and the drinks menu is perfectly paired to match. There is no doubt that the overall vibe of this joint will have you wishing your way through the week.

Where: 5 Lonsdale St, Braddon ACT 2612

Walt and Burley

The picturesque location of Walt and Burley makes it the perfect canvas to unwind and enjoy the views as the sun sets over the capital – drink in hand of course. This stunning venue was awarded the ‘Best place for a Sunday Session’ at the 2015 People’s Choice Awards, and it’s easy to see why.

Where: 70/17 Eastlake Parade, Kingston ACT 2604

The Duxton

The Duxton is the ultimate suburban dream. Set in the heart of O’Connor, it is the perfect mix of all the things we crave from a Sunday session; a relaxed vibe, great food, and a huge selection of drops on offer.

Where: 8 Macpherson St, O’Connor ACT 2602

On the deck at Capitol Bar and Grill

What better way to relax and rejuvenate than basking in the evening sun with your favourite vino in hand … The deck of Capitol Bar and Grill is the perfect place to chill amongst great company and, if you’re feeling a little peckish, the bar menu has some tasty bites that are sure to satisfy your cravings.

The best part … ? You don’t have to wander far.

Where: 1 London Circuit, Canberra ACT 2601

Bentspoke Brewery

Bentspoke have taken over Canberra with their signature home-grown brews, and their cosy brewery space is the perfect place to spend your Sunday. Their extensive craft beer selection will have you sipping your way to sunset in no time.

A couple of must-tries are the Crankshaft and Barley Griffin brews, which recently took out Gold and Silver at the International Brewing Awards.

Where: 48/38 Mort St, Braddon ACT 2612
