Pre-festival watering hole

The Story Bar situated in MACq 01 – Australia’s First Storytelling Hotel – on Hobart’s iconic waterfront, is an enigmatic watering hole serving everything from draught beer to the finest wines and bespoke Tasmanian cocktails. The bar is adorned with major local newspaper headlines from previous decades, and the cosy intimate space has lavish designer furniture, a wrap-around deck with panoramic views of the city where stories can be shared in a setting of informal luxury. To truly understand Tasmania, one must know its people and how they interact…The Story Bar makes for an iconic backdrop for both locals and visitors alike and features live music from Wednesdays to Sundays. Pop in to The Story Bar before the Huon Valley Mid-Winter Festival for a brew or two.
