Looking to head out to a pub in Gero on a Saturday night? This list might help you to choose your next Saturday night outing! These 5 pubs are all located in Geraldton’s CBD are all in walking distance of each other.
Pros: This is the place to be in Geraldton on a Saturday night. There’s usually some cool live acoustic tunes, awesome ambiance, potent cocktails and woodfired pizzas.
Cons: It’s a small space so sometimes it can be hard to find a spot to sit with you and your friends so make sure you book ahead. On the Saturdays that it is super busy you might find yourself waiting in line to go in or waiting a while to get a drink at the bar.
Side note: Awesome wicked cool artwork on the walls
- The Gero (The Geraldton Hotel)
Pros: The Gero has the coolest of all cool beer gardens! Heaps of space to sit and enjoy a drink or space to dance to one of the cool DJs they usually have on a Saturday night. If you hang around late enough you can walk outside the door and head into Gero’s one and only nightclub – the Vibe! (Vibe Nightclub has recently undergone major renovations)
Cons: If you’re not into “doof doof” music sometimes a Saturday night at the Gero might not be for you. And if you’re offended by skimpys – don’t head inside.
Side note: The Sunday Sesh at the Gero goes off!
- Breakers (Breakers Bar and Cafe)
Pros: You can enjoy a nice pub meal here before the tables and chairs are moved and the dance floor opens. Saturday night usually sees some sort of cool music or visiting DJ or even our popular local DJ Strawn.
Cons: The Breakers outside area is lacking in size and is usually full with smokers or people try to get some “fresh air”.
Side note: Breakers is your Pre-drinks stopover before hitting the nightclub - as it tends to go off on a Saturday night.
- The Camel Bar
Pros: From about 9pm -10pm the Camel bar usually gets pretty rowdy. There’s heaps of bar staff on and always some sort of entertainment whether it’s a band or karaoke. There’s a nice outdoor area, a pool table and a cool separate bar for functions… And this one’s mainly for the ladies – TWO SEPARATE BATHROOMS. You won’t find yourself lining up for the loo here.
Cons: If you don’t like people trying to cover an 80’s ballad in the form of karaoke – some Saturday nights might not be the best for you! The Camel Bar can also get super busy which can leave you lining up waiting to get in.
Side note: They have a cool “Beers of the World” challenge. (Limit per on of beer, each visit)
- The Freo (The Freemasons Hotel)
Pros: Better known as “The Freo” one of Geraldton’s oldest pubs is still kicking. There’s a big selection of beers, always good tunes and has a nice chilled out atmosphere. The Freo has awesome nights such as Rewind back to the 90’s, 80’s nights and you’ll often see visiting acts but also our own locals such as Anne Williams, The Inks and Zain Laudher.
Cons: If you want to have a boogie with a drink in your hand this is a no-no! So drink your alcohol before stepping foot onto the dance floor.
Side note: You can now get cocktail carafes!
