Beyond Q is an extraordinary second-hand book shop, cafe, and live music venue hidden in the Curtin Shops, Woden, Canberra.
It's inconspicously located downstairs from the central square, and has a vast collection of constantly changing books, antiques, ephemera, and old typewriters. The cafe and service is very friendly and the books are well-priced. They regularly feature exceptional items, making them well worth repeat visits!
Beyond Q (formerly Lawton's Antiquarian) is hidden downstairs from the public square in the Curtin Shops. Follow the sign outside the stairs. Open every day from 8am to 6pm, and sometimes even later.

Tilley's is a Canberran institution, essentially operating as a café, bar, gallery and live music venue.
The interior is dark and moody, crowned by a semi-circular stage and surrounded by booths. A rich and progressive history awaits anyone willing to ask. Best visited for a late breakfast on Sunday or for any live performance.
