Alfred & Constance
With a tiki bar upstairs and an underground ’80s-themed nightclub downstairs, there’s something for every taste at Alfred & Constance.

Eleven Rooftop Bar
When you want to pair your bevvie with incredible city views, Eleven is the place to be.
Super sophisticated, the wraparound space offers sweeping 270-degree vistas of the CBD and surrounding suburbs – and the menu is just as impressive, with classic cocktails, craft beers and boutique wines to suit even the most discerning drinker.
Head in on a Friday and Saturday night for a rooftop party with live DJs and R’n’B tracks.

Perfect for everything from a romantic date night to drinks with friends, the only problem you’ll have is picking your poison – the bar holds around 900 spirits and 20 rotating wines, plus draft beer and a full fridge of sherries and amaro.
No trip to West End would be complete without stopping at The End. Combining vintage furniture, ’70s surf videos and industrial-chic décor, this laidback bar couldn’t be any cooler.
With a rotating beer offering and delicious yet unpretentious cocktails, all served up by smiling bearded bartenders, the good times here roll on well into the night.
