The place at the end of the pier

Over the past few years, Hobart’s dining scene has gone from strength-to-strength with a focus on celebrating Tasmania’s fresh produce, wine and spirits. The city may be small, but it plays host to a new breed of hospitality and food innovators, people are thinking much bigger these days, and venues are stepping up.

One such venue is The Glass House, a high end London style dining bar where the emphasis is on a selection of Tasmania’s finest drinks with complementary, delicate, small plates. All served from a chic, understated dining room with expansive water views.

The Glass House prides itself on a locally sourced menu – each plate sharing a Tasmanian story. There are organic vegetables from farmers, soft sheep milk cheeses and oysters plucked from the Southern Ocean.

The wine list curated by Sommelier Kafka Dornom-Tassell promotes and supports the island’s outstanding wines and is the 2016 People’s Choice in the Tasmanian Wine List Award.

You’ll find The Glass House is at the end of Brooke Street Pier, which is actually a floating pontoon. From this premier position, it has 280 degree views across Sullivan’s Cove and gently rises and falls with the tides. Even the wine cellar is underwater.

The Glass House is designed for those wishing to enjoy Tasmania’s finest produce, wine, whisky and cocktails in style, befitting a Plumm venue.
