    High Jinks is easily one of my favourite cocktail bars in the city. All drinks are good, I've never been disappointed with an order and the staff is very friendly and helpful, specially if I'm undecided. Great music and just the right volume to chat with my friends

    The bar itself and the guys behind it made our night. It happened to the the Queen's memorial day off - so no food available. But the cocktails and the funky space made it well worth our visit. We will certainly go back next tome we're in the Nation's Capital. If you're looking for cool cocktails, great music selection, a chat and fun High Jinks has it all - cheers!

    After 9 the noise levels resulted in feeling like you were in a night club, which significantly impacted the ambiance of a traditional speak easy. In addition the second gin and tonic was in a tall glass which I did not ask for and i would have expected in a short glass. There was no ice added to the first drink while ice added to the second. So perhaps waiting staff could be trained to ask the customer for their preferences when asking for a gin and tonic and bar staff not provide mixed drinks in tall glasses unless requested by the customer.

    High JinksGereageerd op 14 juli 2022Hi Mel, It looks like the expectations for you visit may have been skewed a little. To clarify, we do market ourselves as a venue with an energetic atmosphere, and one of our main points of service is having rambunctious fun. We tend to be a little quieter during the week, so if you were after more of a speakeasy vibe this will be perfect for you! Apologies about the situation with the g+t, that is not usually how we run things here and our service standards will be reviewed.

    This is a fantastic little bar with great ambience and a mixed crowd. Really creative cocktails with a seasonal menu, so it's always interesting. Menu not extensive, but this IS a cocktail bar, so what they have on offer is actually quite generous, with good variety. Well priced, especially for the quality you get. Only thing was the music was waaaay too loud for such a small place. I was having difficulty hearing my friend who was sitting right next to me. The staff turned it down just little when I asked them to, but it was still at a level where conversation wasn't easy, and I still couldn't get the staff's attention over the music, so had to rely on catching their eye. Will definitely be back though - love it :).

    First time being to high jinks, took my wife there for our anniversary. First thoughts upon entering was a small bar, but as we got sat it was just perfect! The staff were amazing, the drinks and food tasted perfect, the atmosphere was incredible. A perfect and romantic cocktail bar for any situation, will definitely be coming back in the future will definitely be recommending to my friends!

    High JinksGereageerd op 14 juli 2022Hi Jack, thanks for your review! I'm so glad you and your wife had such a good experience with us. Happy anniversary - catch you again next year ;)

    I organised a table for 15 people after the launch night of a digital art experience in Canberra. The team were quick to respond and even letting us pre-order pizzas for our hungry group for when they arrived. The team loved the venue, staff and food! Thanks for a great night.

    Disappointed. Ambience and decor very average, not what I expected form my research. Small area with seating facing each other. Only 12 cocktails on the list, limited wine.

    High JinksGereageerd op 26 mei 2022Hi PrueK, Guess we're not your cup of tea or the expectation was skewed. To be honest, this is not our regular review but we understand as a team we have to be open minded. To clarify, we're licensed as a small bar which limits our operational capacity, while we market ourselves as the precincts neighbourhood bar/local. Perhaps the photos don't do justice for the venue or maybe we update the comms so when people search for High Jinks the venue's capacity is clear. Kind regards,
