One of the most popular pubs in North Hobart, The Waggon is a sure-fire choice for both post-work drinks and a cosy family meal. It’s also perfect for all you sports fans. The big screens are in plentiful supply, showcasing a range of national and international sports, so there’s something always on to tickle your fancy. It’s also one of the few places around that regularly shows F1, making it a particular favourite among the city’s gearheads.

Mere minutes from Hobart’s bustling business district, the Tah is one of the major arteries that keeps the city pulsing. Sports are a big part of what makes it tick, with its famous ‘Punters vs Pourers’ Friday nights never failing to draw the crowds ($3 beer pots!). Multiple Foxtel screens show everything from AFL to basketball, with pool tables, UBET and Keno machines also available, so your night is set!
If you’re a regular at The Waratah, why not drop a quick review?
It might sound like a 1960s Batman villain, but Doctor Syntax is actually a rather awesome hotel/bistro with its own separate sports bar. The food is top-notch modern Australian, the Keno and Keno are always tempting, and it’s a great place to go if you simply want to catch the footy with a few mates.
Don’t forget to let us know what you thought of the nefarious Doctor Syntax!
Worth a visit just for the ocean views (and maybe those funky green chairs), ONYX Bar is the pride and joy of the Wrest Point complex. It’s spacious, modern and dripping with elegance, effortlessly suited to both a discerning sports crowd and those simply seeking a taste of the Tasmanian high life. Plus, they’ve got a full TattsBet service area and they’re showing every single game of the 2016 AFL Season Draw! Honestly, what’s not to love?
“Fantastic views of the water and mountains with great seafood and an atmospheric old-style casino, make this a great place to stay in Hobart.” – starwoman8
With its mix of great vibes, lovely staff and highly alluring prizes (ever wanted to win a $1000 bar tab?), it’s not surprising that the Telegraph is constantly abuzz with a multitude of happy patrons. The beer selection is strong, there’s always a game being shown, and we haven’t even gotten to the best part yet: $5 Pizza Thursdays!
