About Wakefield's Bar and Wine

Find an intimate, warm-lit space to chill out with a wine, fine fare or dine privately at Wakefield’s Bar & Wine in Ainslie. Wakefield’s is the ideal neighbourhood wine bar, nestled around the corner and upstairs from Edgar’s Inn – one of Canberra’s best-kept secrets. This stylish wine bar exudes rustic charm with exposed brick, dark timber and moody lighting, ideal for after-work drinks, or a romantic interlude with someone special. Pair the ‘Pretty Little Ditty’ cocktail with the tangerine fish carpaccio, for the perfect matinee of your night. When you want the room for your own, the space transforms into a canape-function room, with space to dance the night away under the light of the disco ball, perching up in a dimly-lit corner, wine in hand; or mingle over our famous karaage chicken.

Welcoming and unique for Canberra
Wakefield's was an amazing venue, from the welcoming, knowledgeable staff, to the food and entertainment! Great place for a couple or larger groups. I had the best time and will be back!!


Incredible venue!
Great atmosphere! Staff were friendly and attentive. Food was delicious and cocktails were incredible! Highly recommend!!


The perfect date night!
The service was fabulous and the staff worked above and beyond to ensure our night ran smoothly. The food is delicious (and generous with portion size) and the cocktail menu is outstanding. I love coming on a Friday evening to watch the burlesque performers, there's nothing like it in Canberra. I highly recommend Wakefield's Bar and Wine.
