Perch yourself in the Birdcage Bar and don’t be surprised if the barman knows exactly what you’re after. Operating since 1973, this renowned retro bar brims with warmth and live music every night of the week.
Known for its list of premium cocktails, no wonder those who enter the brass bars of the birdcage stay longer than planned. At this Hobart cocktail bar there’s always someone to chat to. With its circular bar inviting conversation, and late opening hours, there’s no reason to rush once inside.

You’ll find a hand-painted mural, perhaps someone tinkering on the ivory keys, and always a friendly smile behind the bar. So, if you’re looking for some live Hobart entertainment and a barman who knows just what to shake and serve you, head for the Birdcage. Find out why the locals flock to this intimate Hobart bar.
