This long-standing favourite is your one stop drinking and dining destination in Darwin. They have been operating since 1973 and it’s one of the most renowned venues in Darwin. They always sport some fantastic Friday night live entertainment that commences at 6:30pm for an awesome end to the day. If you’re a mid week partygoer they have trivia on Thursday nights that can get a little bit rowdy if you keep the wine flowing throughout. Over the weekend they will always have a cool lineup of local musicians or solo performers that are passing through Darwin which will get you in the mood for a good time. There are numerous bars located within the Parap Tavern including ‘The Punters & Collectors Bar’ which is home to local punters and TAB facilities for all the avid gamers out there. The ‘Pickled Parrot Bar & Lounge’ is Darwin’s favourite suburban pub that has undergone major renovations and is made up of a high quality al-fresco and bar lounge.
