Grabbing a drink in an outdoor beer garden while feasting on delicious food, followed by a trip to a nightclub or a live gig – what more could you possibly ask for on a night out? Oh you want it them all in one spot so you don’t have to walk far? Well, tick and tick. In The Hanging Garden in downtown Hobart delivers all that and more.
This sprawling cultural precinct is the brainchild of developer Riverlee, architects Fender Katsalidis and DarkLab (founded by professional gambler turned art collector and owner of Mona, David Walsh). They worked together to reimagine a few historic buildings in Hobart to create a space that evolves as the seasons change.
In The Hanging Garden takes up nearly an entire block of downtown Hobart, but you won’t feel like you’re in the city centre. Once you walk behind the heritage facade you’ll be faced with an outdoor oasis with turf and lush green surrounds. Sip cocktails and local Tasmanian beer from one of the many bars scattered around the place, or feast on a range of food offered from the ever-changing food vans. The tiered beer garden gives you the option to party at your own pace – either sit and relax upstairs or enjoy live music in the Cathedral down below.
That isn’t all. The space features Altar, a temple of live music with DJs taking over to give you a late-night party. Coupled with that is the Odeon Theatre, a historic live music venue and host of world-class bands. It really is a spot that ticks all the boxes.
It’s the perfect spot for a lunchtime sesh, a casual afternoon drink or an all night rager. Basically a one-stop-shop for your day or night out.
