Bar Rochford

Bar

Natural wines, great food and a tasteful soundtrack – it's no wonder this is Canberra’s most acclaimed bar. Set within an 1920s heritage building with a window overlooking London Circuit, it also happens to be one of the capital’s best-looking venues.

Paranormal Wines

Bar

At this wine bar and bottle shop, you can stop by for a vino or two and a charcuterie board, or buy a bottle to take home – or to the park across the road.

G27/6 Provan Street, Campbell

Akiba

Restaurant

You can drink the usual shiraz and chardonnay at this energetic Asian diner. But we’d suggest reaching for the hefty sake list, which Akiba claims is Australia’s most extensive.

40 Bunda Street, Canberra

XO

Restaurant

The list at this sharp Asian-fusion spot is short but eclectic, repping skin-contact wines from around the country alongside off-beat aromatic whites and 10 vintages of local star Clonakilla’s flagship shiraz viognier.

Temporada

Restaurant

This moody inner-city bar is known for its charcoal grill, elevated seasonal menu and innovative cocktails, but the new-wave, Euro-Australian wine list is no slouch either.
