Seven cosy Canberra bars with a fireplace


Rug up, Canberra, the cold weather is upon us! Here are a few cosy Canberra bars where you can grab a drink and keep warm by a roaring fireplace.

Bar Rochford

Enormous wine list, amazing food and a crackling fire? Okay, fine…

First floor, 65 London Circuit, City |


An after-work favourite of Barton’s corporate crowd, Ostani’s impressive fireplaces, both inside and out, ensure the warmth is shared around.

Hotel Realm, 18 National Circuit, Barton |

Monster Kitchen and Bar

Monster has not one, but two, spectacular indoor fireplaces to cosy up next to and enjoy their all-vegetarian menu in 2021.

25 Edinburgh Avenue, Canberra |

Old Canberra Inn

Another classic Canberra watering hole, the Old Canberra Inn is the ultimate place to enjoy a meal and keep warm by the fire, maybe even accompanied by some live tunes.

195 Mouat Street, Lyneham |

Rose Cottage

Head south to the valley and you’ll find Rose Cottage’s fire roaring away on a cold night – what more could you want?

1 Isabella Drive, Gilmore |

Walt and Burley

Just south of the lake you’ll find Walt and Burley’s fire, warming the place as the cool wind whips off the lake. See if you can snag the best seats in the house!

70/17 Eastlake Parade, Kingston |

Capital Brewing

When the mercury drops, the Capital team bring in their fireplace to warm the taproom and your heart (the drinks stay cold, though!).

Building 3, 1 Dairy Road, Fyshwick |
