On a corner of Dickson lives your next regular hang-out; Sub-Urban is a quality restaurant with a boutique wine list and a lively atmosphere. This restaurant was crafted by the makers of Belluci’s, a well-known and trusted Canberra name, and effectively offers the same family Italian dining with a few slight changes and special additions.

PROFILED BY DEGROOTS MEDIA
When you think of a restaurant in the back of a pub you might think footy on the big screens, bistro food, soggy beer coasters and self-service. Sub-Urban, however, is an establishment in the heart of Dickson with a different formula, and it’s proving to be a winner. Sub-Urban takes full advantage of its corner art-deco building, and has cleverly run with this theme through the interior with features like big black and white floor tiles and old-style artwork banners. Continue further towards the back and you’ll find the cosy, wood-panelled restaurant with a more intimate setting, and in no time you will forget you’ve just walked into a happening nightspot. The atmosphere is great with an exciting vibe that is generated by the friendly staff, experienced waiters and the live music on Saturday and Sundays by Touchasoul, Mark Travis and The Squirrels.

This restaurant was crafted by the makers of Belluci’s, a well-known and trusted Canberra name, and effectively offers the same family Italian dining with a few slight changes and special additions. The eatery boasts a cleverly crafted menu to complement the stylish pub section with more emphasis on selections from the grill such as tender marinated pork ribs and succulent prime cuts of beef served with your choice of sauce and chips or jacket potato. Leave a bit of room for a delicious cocktail mixed by the talented bartenders, or one of Sub-Urban’s fine desserts. However, if it’s a snack you’re after, the bar menu has some great tapas options available. Sub-Urban’s bar and beer garden is the perfect place to lounge around during summer. The spacious beer garden comes to life after work and on weekends, so bring friends or colleagues and kick back in the sun with a boutique beer or bottle of wine.

Sub-Urban - User Reviews

john:

No stars for this location. Was quite amazed that I couldn't even get in for a meal in my collared shirt which was apparently was too casual even thought directly through the window a group of people were suiting at a table in t-shirts. This may be one the busiest weekends in Canberra and the arrogant bouncer may be in a position to pick and choose people who he likes, but there is no way this type of approach will help sustain the business. Want to go out and have a good time and not have to be judged at the door - don't eat here.review  08/01/2012
