We walked in to the Knightsbridge on a freezing Canberra night and were greeted with a warm reception by the friendly bar staff. We were just looking for a place to warm up and ended with a Negroni each and a fun conversation with bar staff and some of the other patrons. Its 50 meters off the beaten track, its... More

Went here for a night cap after dinner at the Marble and Grain. The ladies had a hot cocktails which, according to them were devine. They have the usual specialty whiskies but also some that I haven't had before eg a french whisky. The barman was very knowledgeable. Great atmosphere... even mulled wine. Worth a visit.

Has been always been quiet during the week every time we have visited. Always good for an old favourite Scotch, or for trying out something unfamiliar. Faintly bohemian atmosphere, probably improves when more crowded.

We spend many an evening at Knightsbridge for an after work drink or a Saturday night. The décor is quirky and fun making a nice change from the many sterile bars popping up in Canberra. The cocktails are authentic and reasonably priced. The staff make this place - they are super friendly and attentive, service is always excellent. Have moved... More

A small but hip joint in Braddon. Pro tip - this place gets packed on a weekend night, be ready for it. Decent booze selection and good service. An active dance floor. A small but refreshing patio out the back. A good experience.

Hidden away in a little Braddon nook, you have to keep your eyes peeled to find the Penthouse. Once you do, the effort is definitely worth it :) Glorious plush decor, fittings to die for & staff that know their stuff. Definitely marked as 'I will return'. :)

We had a private function to celebrate our daughter's 21st birthday at Knightsbridge. It was a good choice and we had exclusive use of the venue from 6 to 9pm. The staff were helpful and friendly, with setting up slide shows and music. We organised for catering separately for the party, which worked out well. Thanks for your vote if... More

Packed on a Saturday night, but lots of fun. Took forever to get a drink, but that's normal. The DJ was playing good music, there was interesting decor and a back outdoors area I didn't get to.

Knightsbridge is truly a Braddon institution. It's been the meeting place for TGIF drinks, birthday parties and a perfect starter bar on a big night out for many years. With it's perfect mixture of class and hipster chic it's a great spot to socialise with friends. While the cocktails aren't exactly cheap, they are varied and well made. The staff... More
