Bars

When it’s time for a sundowner after work, a frosty Tasmanian beer by the water or a glass of wine served with some live music, Wrest Point Tasmania has a bar for you. We don’t mind if you’re bringing a large flock of friends for a pre-show cocktail or you’re after a cosy corner for a quiet drink. 

We are the home of Hobart entertainment, with nightly live music and a sparkling calendar of events that beg a glass or two of bubbly before show time. Celebrate with family, enjoy a great night out with friends or meet for a night cap at the Birdcage Bar. Four bars at the one venue- bar hopping in heels just became more desirable.

ONYX Bar

ONYX Bar

The ONYX Bar doesn’t mind if you’re starting out your night, in the middle of it, or kicking on after a show. Located in the centre of Wrest Point Tasmania, with fabulous water views, this is a meeting place with style.

With full TOTE service area and a bar food menu starting from $10.50, gather up some mates for an afternoon of fun.
