A night at Lucky Coq can only be described a rite of passage; cheap drinks, $4 pizzas, free pool tables and live bands – welcome to student life. As this might suggest the crowd does tend to be on the younger end; however, with weekly specials and an array of live music including a blues Sunday session this is a venue too good to dismiss. If you’re looking for a great budget spot, Lucky Coq has you covered.
A short stroll from Ripponlea station is the Lyre Bird Lounge. A small tavern, this venue plays host to many live bands and has built itself a reputation for being the classic local. A great stop if you or your group is in the mood to grab a beer or glass of wine while watching some local talent perform. This venue’s charm and laid-back atmosphere make it perfect for after-work drinks.
