Canberra’s 5 Most Enticing Happy Hour Deals

Have you had a long, hard day at work? Of course you have; after all, everyone knows Canberrans work the hardest – so that means you deserve a treat! And what better treat that super cheap drinks and wings? We’ve pulled together some of our favourite happy hours deals in the city for you to enjoy.


Monday – $6 Tap Beer and House Wine



We’ll begin the week at Honkytonks, Canberra’s very own cushion-laden temple of art, music and quality sustenance. If you’re looking for a good place to blow off some of that inevitable Monday steam, this is most definitely it. Between 4-6pm, they serve house wines and independently brewed Australian tap beers for just $6, which means you can have a drink and support local industry. Everybody wins!

Tuesday – $5 @ 5pm: All Tap Beers, Ciders, House Wines & Spirits

Lighthouse Pub


Outshining even the waterfront views, succulent steaks, awesome staff and live sports screenings, the good old Lighty’s happy hour is the stuff that legends are made of. 5pm signals the start of something special here, with house wines, spirits and all tap beers and ciders available for a mere five bucks each. This is happy hour done right, and you’d be mad not to check it out.

“Recently celebrated a friends birthday lunch here. My family, especially the kids were very impressed. The staff were wonderful, kids menu, coloring in sets & free ice creams made the lunch so enjoyable for the adults! The menu is fantastic, pub food at a great level. Would recommend to anyone.” – Nharris52

Wednesday – $15 1kg Chicken Wings

Little Brooklyn


We could all use a little refuelling by the time Wednesday rolls around (especially if we’ve enjoyed Monday and Tuesday’s happy hours a bit too much), and Little Brooklyn offers the perfect solution. We can safely say that this popular Kingston haunt lays claim to Canberra’s greatest chicken wings deal, and that’s not an honour we bestow lightly! A whole kilo for only $15 is hard to argue with, after all…

Thursday – $5 Tap Beers, House Wines and Basic Spirits



Whether you swing by for a few quick drinks or settle in for a mighty feast of contemporary Italian goodness, the fine folks at Provini are always happy to see you. The pizzas are famously delicious (especially the prawn and chilli one), and the happy hour offer is equally agreeable. From 4-6pm, you can get house wines, basic spirits and tap beers for a paltry $5. Just remember, don’t tell Nonna…

Friday – $10 Cocktails, $5 House Wine, Bottled Beers and Cider

Waldorf on London


Our magical tour through the happy hour havens of Canberra must now end the only way it can: with $10 cocktails! The Waldorf on London is well known for its Friday Afternoon Sessions (3-7pm), when drinks get cheap across the board in preparation for looming weekend. It’s a relaxed and friendly spot in which to meet for a few celebratory (and affordable) drinks, so go have some fun!
