Cocktail Bar in Central Hobart & the Waterfront

'Coldhearted liquor' is the tagline here, a nod to Hobart's distinctly sub-Antarctic latitude. And indeed the interior design is cool – all minimalist, sharp and white, like the inside of an ice cube. Warm up with Tasmanian spirits and wines (try an Icebreaker cocktail – vodka, lime and cucumber) and maybe a plate of seared chorizo and peppers.
