If there is a Father of Speak-Easy Bars in Canberra, Hippo’s is it. It was here long before the others sprung up.

It doesn’t get more discreet than Hippo’s.
If you're new to Canberra, you've probably walk past it every time you’re in Garema Place and have perhaps missed it.

Hippo-Co is not immediately obvious from street level. Sitting next to Honkytonks, it is signposted only by a small door that leads onto a narrow flight of stairs leading above street level. Emerging from the stairwell into the bar is like entering a different world. The lighting is dim and sultry, provided by exposed light bulbs suspended from circular frames in the ceiling and from lamps shrouded in kooky shades. The walls are exposed brick, decorated with framed black and white photos and mirrors.

Perch on bar stools or settle into comfortable wooden chairs that cluster cosily around low tables. Listen to the jazz, fingers and toes taping and sway to the fluid rhythm with a nice cocktail or whiskey.

What: Hippo Bar (Above Happy's Chinese Restaurant)
When: 17th August 2016, 6:00 pm onwards (Jazz from 8:30pm every Wednesday).
Where: 17 Garema Place, Civic
Phone: (02) 6247 7555
