Nightlife and Entertainment in Alice Springs

Edit This
Although the film 'Priscilla, Queen of the Desert' was partly shot here and one of the tracks on the fellow cd is called 'I Love the Nightlife', it might not have to do a lot with Alice Springs. You'll mostly have to do it with the nightlife that takes its course in the bars.

Bojangle's Bar and Saloon are among the best. Feeling hot, dry, dusty? You gotta go to Bo's!

*****************************************************

The Alice Springs nightlife offers enough to keep you entertained with or without family or a loved one. If you're looking for something to do after dark, try any of the following:

Drinking and Dining at The Juicy Rump

The Juicy Rump at Lasseters Hotel Casino, 93 Barrett Drive, has such an eclectic, sleek decor that your immediate reaction may be that it isn't a place for kids. Perhaps late at night, you'll find the under-21 crowd dwindling, but The Juicy Rump actually has quite an extensive children's menu. The Juicy Rump has beautiful deck-seating that opens to the spectacular desert cliffs for a nighttime nightclub experience unlike any other. Live DJ music every weekend means it makes a great location for dancing.

There's a full menu featuring seafood, lamb, pork, steak, poultry, burgers and even kangaroo, as well as salads and soup with meals costing an average of $20 to $30. Drinks consist of mostly wine and beer, ranging from $4 to $9 a glass.

Experience Australia through the Sound of Starlight Theatre

Head to 40 Todd Mall for an evening of fun and spectacle at the Sound of Starlight Theatre. The performances at the Sound of Starlight Theatre feature the native Australian didgeridoo, percussion and keyboard, performing native tunes to the backdrop of stunning Australian scenery. Tickets cost $30 per adult and $25 per child. You can pair tickets to the performance with dinner at the Red Ochre Grill, which is located across the street, for $75 per adult and $65 per child (includes show tickets). The restaurant features native Australian cuisine and adults get a free glass of wine.

Enjoy Pub Atmosphere at Firkin & Hound

If an old-fashioned pub is more your idea of an evening's entertainment, there's always Firkin & Hound, located at 21 Hartley Street. Definitely more of a place for adults than kids, you won't have to worry about dressing up to fit into this traditional English pub atmosphere. This pub is your place for kicking back a few beers, so don't expect to find a wide variety of cocktails and wines. There's a full menu of soups, salads, steak, lamb, sausage and more. Expect prices to range from about $5 to $6 for appetizers or soup to upwards of $20 to $30 for the meals. The amount of food served per meal is huge, so pack a big appetite. However, the pub doesn't allow you to take a doggy bag home. Smoking is allowed in the pub, so whether that's a plus or a minus for you, keep that in mind.
