Welcome back to Hobart. It’s been too long since we’ve seen you so let us get you back up to speed on some of Hobart’s best welcome & casual function venues.
After a quick office poll, here are our top 5 venues to check out.
Casual Welcome Reception
– Hobart Brewing Co
A 2-minute walk away is Hobart Brewing Co.
Perfect for casual welcomes or farewell drinks. Think food trucks, firepits, local craft beers and Tassie wines & spirits… this place has been our GM’s favourite for thirsty Thursdays for years now so that alone makes it worth the visit!
Rustic Welcome Reception
– Willie Smith’s Apple Shed
A 30-minute drive from Hobart into the Huon Valley, you’ll find this ‘original’ barn that produces some of the best organic cider you’ll ever taste. Perfect on a summer evening to laze on the lawn and enjoy some of the freshest air in the world, oh, and they offer some amazing local produce for your guests also.
Welcome Reception amongst the vines
– Frogmore Creek
Looking for a choice sure to impress the foodies in your group? Then Frogmore Creek Winery is for you. A quick 15-minute drive from the City, Frogmore Creek offers just the right mix of great wines, amazing menus featuring local produce with a unique twist, in a setting that will make you dream of garden parties in summer, or feasting in winter in front of the open fire. This is a vineyard that is iconically Tasmanian for a reason.
Welcome Reception with a difference
– Hanging Garden
Curated by the team at Dark Lab (part of MONA), no two events are the same at the Hanging Garden. This eclectic space has something for everyone and is sure to make you feel like you’re somewhere special. Experience Hobart’s hidden garden as your delegates ‘break bread’ on fresh, seasonal produce from local suppliers.
– Post Street Social
Looking for a space for those late night debriefs after the official part of the evening is done? Post Street Social is the ideal space for this. A short walk from the Hotel and right on the waterfront, this wine bar is a firm favourite amongst locals. Your delegates will love sitting back, relaxing on the deck (heated of course!) as they enjoy the great range of Tassie beverages on offer.
