If you followed some of our earlier posts here and here, you’ll know that we made a recent journey to the newish Uni Pub to check out what they had to offer. The answer is four and a bit floors of fun. The basic rundown is a ground floor pub, followed by a bistro (with a cook your own steak type deal), a pool hall, an ‘executive’ bar (seriously!) and night club. Word on the street is that its owned by the same folks at the Civic Pub and the Kingo, so it’s a little along those lines but a bit cooler and less colonial inspiration. The downstairs pub is where I think I’d spend most time, the bar is big, reasonably well stocked for beer and its large and the staff are friendly. The bistro is a bit much work for me, but if you like the equivalent stuff at Civic Pub this one will probably suit you also. Unfortunately the executive bar and nightclub were closed when we were there, but I imagine they look precisely the same as every other floor, though with different lighting (assuming the floors we saw were anything to go on).

Overall, it’s cool that Canberra finally has a mega pub (no Mooseheads has never counted), and it’s much more likely a Sydney or Melbourne pub downstairs.

I know from applying a degree of rocket science that a number of you have found our site searching for the Uni Pub. In an attempt to actually provide useful information, I’ve included a link to the google map of the location. It’s on the corner of University Avenue and London Circuit, just across from the Police Station. If they have a website, let us know and we’ll provide appropriate links.

Verdict: Go there. This will be a PANTS regular location. We rate it. If you go there, let us know, we like fun.

I had the worst night ever last night in Uni pub when the bouncer started pushing and my husband just because he decided to go down stair to use the toilet ( top floor’s toilet was huge line) and wanted to go back to get me on the top floor and go home. It was supposed to be my special mother’s day gift from my husband to have time off and go out.
I was waiting for ages up stairs thinking there was another line on the toilet down stairs, but all that time he was trying to reason with the bouncer that he really need to get his wife upstairs. The sad thing was that they let all the others girls go up but not my husband, HOW RUDE!!!. Why can’t you guys just offer him to come up with you just to prove him right, that he is not some kind of jerks that you think he was, all he wanted to do was get to me because it was my special night out. MY SPECIAL MOTHER”S DAY NIGHT WAS RUINED BY THE BOUNCERS IN UNI PUB.
