Peacock and Jones


Built into a converted warehouse overlooking the dreamy Hobart waterfront, Peacock and Jones is a lovely gastropub with a super-modern layout and a menu exploding with fresh Tasmanian goodness. It’s the perfect spot for a romantic (and wine-heavy) evening, and the oysters with champagne sorbet are one of the city’s must-try delicacies, as far as we’re concerned.

The Black Footed Pig


You’ll find no shortage of tapas joints around Hobart, but truly authentic Spanish fare requires a little extra digging. The Black Footed Pig is ready to serve, with beautiful flavours and breezy décor drawn straight from España herself. As for what to try? Well, it’s tapas, so the answer is everything. Although, you can’t really skip the jamón ibérico, can you? It’s from the actual black footed pig!

Republic Bar and Cafe

North Hobart

A great crowd, awesome food (including a fiendish hot sauce collection), and live music seven nights a week combine to make Republic a bona fide Hobart institution. The strong commitment to local produce sets it apart from many other bars, and the spacious interior ensures that everyone can fit in to catch a gig. If you get the chance, order the Slow Cooked Cape Grim Beef Cheeks. Delicious!

“Where would Hobartians go to se interesting cutting & edge bands if it weren’t for Republic? Great pub meals and outdoor heated beer garden for smokers, funky staff. Thanks Republic!” – MoonahMum
