Craving for a retro, outdoor drinking experience? The Rockket Room along Caxton St in Petrie Terrace offers a cool and laid back atmosphere topped off with beach chairs, BBQ, and beer.
Offering a selection of liquor ranging from beer on tap to some exciting cocktails is The Rockket Room — one of the most popular hangout hotspots in Petrie Terrace. The bar occasionally hosts nights with live music and other special events. For instance, customers interested in watching sports matches for games such as rugby live can do so on select nights — sharing the experience with other bar goers, drinking and celebrating with one another when their respective team wins.
Other events also include trivia night, which encourages patrons to put on their thinking caps and bring their ‘A’ game.
However, its primary selling point is its atmosphere: an astroturf garden with white fence props, fold-out beach chairs and patio furniture, along with the scent of barbeque on the grill and pizza in the oven. Customers can also indulge themselves with some orders of pizza, all priced under $20.
On the other hand, those who wish to listen to live music in a cool outdoor space can look no further. Local artists and bands periodically set up on select dates and play their songs for the bar’s patrons.
Those on a tight budget, or those simply eager to drink copious amounts of liquor with their friends can rejoice, for the Rockket Room offers a happy hour promotion between the hours of 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. where customers can purchase drinks for only half the price.
The Rockket Room can be found at 2 Caxton St, Petrie Terrace, open Wednesday to Saturday from 4:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. For more information, and for the latest updates and announcements concerning the bar, follow their social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram.
