Get your social drinking on track at one of Darwin’s oldest clubs. Known simply as The Railway Club, is less sporty, more social (which is not to say the drinking and dancing doesn’t get a little competitive from time to time). The club rooms house big pool tables, the bar can accommodate a thirst en masse and the outdoor area offers a peaceful retreat from boisterous crowds.
Perhaps best of all though, the venue boasts one of the biggest dance floors in Darwin, lucky for learner swing dancers (there are regular social classes here). For the gig going masses, the Railway hosts regular live music, including big nights with big names from around the country, and more subdued Sunday sessions. Bands range in style from rock to jazz and swing, and the punters are an equally mixed bunch.
