Don’t let the relaxed atmosphere of Alice Springs fool you into thinking this is a sleepy outback town. The bars here are vibrant and diverse, providing something for everyone, whether you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy a drink with a view, watch some sports, catch some live music, or dance until the morning.

Many of the bars here are open for lunch, with affordable food deals and the opportunity to enjoy delightful views or sip a drink in a beer garden whilst the sun is still up. Indulge in refreshing afternoon beverages after an exciting morning of adventures, play pool and darts, or keep up with your favourite teams at one of the sports bars. Solo travellers and socialites may choose to head to the hostel bars for cheap beer and friendly like-minded adventurers.

Do check the calendars of local drinking holes to plan your evenings around which venues are hosting live music events from local and touring talent.

As well as the more casual spots, Alice has plenty of lively bars for those who love to party and dance the night away to the music of the DJ. Many venues are open until the small hours of the morning
