There's nothing better than a beard in Darwin

If you’re a fan of impressive facial hair, there is a high chance you’ve heard of the band called The Beards. With all of their song titles including the word ‘beard’, such as the slightly contentious “If Your Dad Doesn’t Have a Beard, You’ve Got Two Mums”, this gig is sure to be a fun night out in Darwin. Grab your mates, get your beard trimmed and then hit up an incredible feed and a cold beer for after the event. I’m sure Charles Darwin will agree that it’s only evolutionary that we all love beards.

If your beard is looking scraggly and unshapely, then Ally’s Barber Shop is one of the best barbers in Darwin. Combining a traditional barber experience while also specialising in hair tattoos (if you’re feeling wild), this business has been loved by the locals since 2003. Tidy up the hair on your head and then opt for a full beard trim and sculpt to make sure your facial hair is looking perfect for The Beards gig tonight. Not a single one of those beautiful beard hairs will be out of place after visiting Ally’s, just a short drive from The Beards gig venue.

The Buff Club Darwin is a great place for a beer with the lads in the air-conditioned bar or in the beer garden out the back. Strike up a game of pool with a cold stubby in hand and celebrate your manliness in style. This relaxing environment is just a short drive from The Beards gig, so is the perfect venue for a pre-drink. Serving all of your favourite beers on tap and showing a huge selection of sports on their TV’s don’t go past the Buff Club Darwin. They also have a huge selection of bar snacks or light meals to choose from if you want something to chew on before the gig. Don’t spend the afternoon bored at home, grab the lads and enjoy the laid back atmosphere of this outstanding watering hole.
Where: 57 Stuart Highway, Stuart Park NT 0820

Darwin Railway Sports & Social Club

Not only is this the venue for The Beards gig tonight, but it’s also one of the best places to grab a pint of beer in the NT. Why not hang around and check out their beer garden with a Little Creatures Pale Ale in hand. The Railway Club is one of Darwin’s oldest venues and was originally started for the railway workers of the 400km Darwin to Larrimah track. After the historic track closed down in 1976, the club continued on to bring you one of the best venues for music gigs in the area. Stick around and support one of the oldest local businesses by knocking back the ales and stouts. We all know the thing that helps put hair on a man’s face is a cold stubby.
Where: Somerville Gardens, Parap NT 0804

Outback Jacks Bar & Grill

After you’ve finished singing along to “No Beard, No Good”, fill your grumbling stomachs at Outback Jacks Bar & Grill. This steakhouse can guarantee you a huge feed, but they can’t guarantee you won’t get sauce in your beard so make sure to come prepared for post-meal beard grooming. If you’ve got a beard, try their slow cooked bourbon pork ribs for a meaty, filling meal with a punch. If you want a real challenge, their Lump-A-Rump 500 gram steak is the piece of beef for you. Get down to Outback Jacks Bar & Grill for the best beard-worthy meal.
Where: 28 Mitchell Street, Darwin NT 0800
