Looking for something to do this weekend? Here are our fab five suggestions to get you out and about.

Relax – Piano Bar, Two Fingers Barber Shop and Bar, Albury

Enjoy the crackle of an open fire, the aroma of aged barrels while indulging in your favourite drop of whisky (or other beverage) with some ivory tunes playing in the background, as Two Fingers Barber Shop and Bar converts to a piano bar this weekend.

Thanks to Haynes Piano Restoration & Tuning, renowned pianist Connie O’Connell will be accompanied by Niki Strauss and friends on Friday & Saturday nights. Bar opens at 4pm music from 7pm.
