Depends where you are

In the city, PJ O'Reillys (http://maps.google.com.au/maps?hl=en&safe=off&client=safari&rls=en&resnum=0&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=p+j+O'Reilly's&fb=1&gl=au&hq=p+j+O'Reilly's&hnear=Canberra+ACT&cid=0,0,8862537263399089675&ei=wwHUS8SwDIrs7APskcC-Dw&sa=X&oi=local_result&ct=image&resnum=1&ved=0CAcQnwIwAA) or King O'Malleys (http://maps.google.com.au/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=king+o'malley's&sll=-35.277805,149.127989&sspn=0.009564,0.01929&gl=au&ie=UTF8&cd=1&hq=king+o'malley's&hnear=&z=16). If you're near O'Connor then All Bar Nun (http://maps.google.com.au/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=all+bar+nun&sll=-35.277805,149.127989&sspn=0.009564,0.01929&gl=au&ie=UTF8&hq=all+bar+nun&hnear=&ll=-35.263457,149.124985&spn=0.018256,0.038581&z=15&iwloc=A).

Other side of the lake, try the Kingston Hotel (http://maps.google.com.au/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Kingston+Hotel&sll=-35.263457,149.124985&sspn=0.018256,0.038581&gl=au&ie=UTF8&hq=Kingston+Hotel&hnear=&ll=-35.293271,149.131508&spn=0.076501,0.154324&z=13&iwloc=A)

Kingston (B Bar) and Manuka have some great bars / and places to drink.
All Bar None is good, or even there are a couple of places inner north - Edgar's in Ainslei shops and the bar at the back of the Dickson shops.

Civic - few groovy options around - depends on age range / group / what you are looking for.

Sinsations in Mitchell is good for a quiet ale
