The Armada Outdoor Bar

Armada Bar at The Boat House is not returning this season, but we're excited to introduce its charming counterpart - Margot Bar! Though Armada Bar won't be joining us this season, Margot Bar is here to scratch the itch. Margot Bar is not part of The Boat House or Armada Bar, but is a sibling bar, situated on the lake on Queen Elizabeth Terrace in the beautiful suburb of Parkes.

Margot Bar - Location

Margot Bar showcases the very best of Canberra with a distinctly cosmopolitan euro flavour, in an iconic setting right by the lake on Queen Elizabeth Terrace.

Margot Bar - Food

With a focus in cheese, small goods and pizza Margot Bar is a great option for a casual drink, or full meal.

Margot Bar - Drinks

Margot Bar features a small and focused meticulous selection of NSW and French wines alongside hand a crafted range of cocktails, and non-alcoholic options.
