“Just another bar”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

It was okay. Stark & boring decor, kind of like a shed. Door staff were a bit OTT. But it was walking distance so it fit the bill for the night.

“Fun salon”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Set like a salon from Mad Max, many things to view and a skeleton on a motorcycle behind a plate glass window. Food was VERY good and there was plenty of it.

“Tuesday night was rocking”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

The receptionnist at Toddy's Backpackers told me I should go there to grab a bite and a few drinks for dinner.
I finally didn't go for dinner but went for drinks arond 9 p.m. on a tuesday night in febuary. When I got ther the place was pack. You see groups of tourist who visit Ayer's Rock during the day with the ROCK TOUR come here for dinner and drinks afterward.
They spend the whole day together visiting Ayer's Rock and then by night time they can look at all the funky pictures that where taken during the day.
Obviously dinner is taken with a few drinks, the music gets louder, then people start dancing, then somme people start cruising and to top it off you have a singer that comes in and plays live sets during the evening.
WOW I wish I would have gone on taht ROCK TOUR with these guys. I'm sure you can get information if you contact the restaurant directly.
Now, I know you must be saying to yourself, he works for these guys.
But let me assure you, I'm French Canadian, I only spent one night in Alice Springs and I really think you have to spend one evening at the ROCK BAR, if you want to enjoy Alice Springs.
If you like your evenings a little bit quieter you should know there's an outside courtward in back of the restaurant wich is more quiet and you can still look at all the pictures that were taken during the day on the giant screen ! Is's a must, the rest of the town looks pretty quiet on a tuesday night !!
