  • Mister bartender sir provided a excellent espresso martini when given cocktail tastes. He was very friendly and not at all depressed. PS he is named Hamish  more »

  • I’ve had better experiences but this last one was a bit of a downer. One of the bartenders overcharged my friend, another tried to overcharge one of my other friends. We ordered and paid for four shots and they made out 3 (even left the fourth glass empty) and looked at us funny when we asked them if they were gonna fill it. I bought a drink for my friend as it was her birthday and asked for something sweet that doesn’t taste strong and then got some sort of drink that tasted like petrol. It’s sucks when you go to a place like this for the first time and love it but the second time feel like you have to watch the bartenders just in case they might overcharge you, or give you a drink that wasn’t what you asked for.
  • Whether I'm here for a function or visiting for a dark rum or eight, the following stays true; There's a great ambience here. I really enjoy the theme. There are subtle hints to the Cuban/Flight theme that are well thought out and not jammed down your throat like most of the other themed bars I've been to. The bartenders are always well presented and knowledgeable of their craft. More than happy to add a little showmanship! All the staff produce a welcoming environment and are nothing but keen to assist in any way possible. I highly reccomend The Highball Express! It's one of Canberra's greatest bars!
