The National Press Club of Australia is a great social spot, where you can mix with people of similar sensibilities. In Canberra, the National Press Club is recognised as the thinking person’s social venue. Each Thursday and Friday night we feature some of Australia’s best live music for members and their guests.

Please ask our bar staff about our COCKTAIL OF THE WEEK.

Each Thursday we offer local and visiting acts and every Friday it is the stars of the ANU Jazz School selected by Greg Stott.  The baby grand piano is the feature and the selected acts and their repertoires are chosen to enhance and complement discussion and networking rather than compete with it. With membership comes the unique opportunity to build strategic relationships, entertain valuable clients and enjoy lunch with opinion with our National Australia Bank Addresses, The Column restaurant and balcony and Club Lounge which are ideal for networking or relaxing. The Club Lounge is open from 11am to late Monday to Friday.
