Set in a stunningly transformed Georgian sandstone warehouse, Botanica Bar lives up to its name. Surrounded by hanging and potted plants, there is nowhere prettier to enjoy an after-work drink with your mates. This bar has an extensive wine menu and a fun range of spritzes, if you’re after something sparkling. It also serves a range of share plates, burgers and tacos if you feel like staying for dinner.

Grape Food and Wine Bar

Grape Food and Wine Bar is one of the most happening places in the Salamanca area of Hobart. With an extensive wine list that the venue challenges any other local bar to beat and live music most nights, the atmosphere here is one of pure entertainment. The perfect spot to share a pizza before getting funky on the dancefloor, a night at Grape Food and Wine Bar is one that you won’t soon forget.

Lucinda Wine Bar

Lucinda Wine Bar is the kind of place to drop into after work and enjoy a glass of natural wine and a snack. The atmosphere is vibrant and fun; one minute you can be having a quiet conversation in the corner, the next you’ll be dancing on the tables. The bar lists more than 300 bottles of natural/organic/biodynamic wine, and all you need to do is tell the staff what you feel like, and they’ll find the perfect bottle to suit you.

Willing Brothers. Wine Merchants

Wine Bar, Wine, Snacks, $
If you’re looking for a relaxed wine bar offering a selection of high-quality snacks, charcuterie and cheese, Willing Brothers won’t disappoint. The space may be small, but the dimly lit atmosphere more than makes up for it. Perfect for gathering with a small group of friends or on a romantic date. We recommend trying the Willing Brothers pinot noir.

If waterside drinks are on your agenda you should look no further than The Glasshouse Hobart. With spectacular views over the harbour and Derwent River, there’s no better place to take a seat and enjoy a refreshing glass of Tasmanian wine. If wine isn’t your thing, then this spot also boasts an impressive cocktail list – all classic favourites with a Tasmanian twist.

Often described as a little different, this casual late-night bar specialises in Japanese sake as well as a range of Japanese beers and cocktails. If sake is a bit outside your wine comfort zone, there’s also a sake-tasting plate to get you started. If all else fails, the bar still serves your favourite local wines, with a range of Japanese-inspired food to accompany them.
