Pre-festival watering hole: stop by the Story Bar

Pop in for a brew or two before making your way down to the festival.

An enigmatic watering hole on Hobart’s iconic waterfront serving up local craft favourites, The Story Bar is part of MACq 01 – Australia’s first storytelling hotel. Adorned with major local newspaper headlines from decades gone by, even the bar tells a tale.

Head to the wrap-around deck with panoramic views of the city – where stories can be shared and created for years to come.

The perfect way to start your Huon Valley Mid-Winter Festival weekend!
