While the lure of your couch may seem hard to resist on these cold winter days, there’s still a way to get out and about while staying toasty warm. Just grab your coat and head to one of these five pubs with a fireplace in Hobart today.
1. New Sydney Hotel, Hobart
87 Bathurst Street, Hobart
Don’t let the name fool you, this laid-back watering hole is definitely one of the best pubs with a fireplace in Hobart! Nestled in the middle of the joint is a roaring fireplace that brings a steady stream of warmth to the place. Once you’ve settled in, be sure to try one of the many craft beers on offer or tuck into something delicious on the menu. The rustic and welcoming vibe will have you coming back time and time again.
2. Hope and Anchor Tavern, Hobart
65 Macquarie Street, Hobart
Depending on who you talk to, this is the oldest pub in Australia. So it’s no doubt that the two fireplaces inside have been put to good use over the last 213 years and continue to provide that much needed warmth on a cool day. The building oozes history and character, with artefacts adorning the walls with stories of the past. It’s a must visit pub if you’re nearby and need somewhere to escape the cold.
3. Preachers, Hobart
5 Knopwood Street, Hobart
This is a hip and happening pub in the heart of Hobart. The rambling venue has little rooms with fireplaces, where you can settle in and keep warm. The beer garden has another fireplace with a lively atmosphere. If you get too warm, just move on into the converted school bus for another unique experience. The quirky and charming vibe makes it a perfect place to escape to on a cold day. Click here to read a review.
4. The Whaler, Salamanca Place
Salamanca Place, Hobart
In the early 1800s, local whalers would head to this pub to get paid and grab a drink with friends. While a few things have changed since then, it’s still a great place to meet up with mates and soak up the atmosphere of the bustling Salamanca Place. The traditional fireplace keeps the venue toasty warm, while the solid and standard pub grub won’t leave you disappointed.
5. Jack Greene, Salamanca Place
49 Salamanca Place, Hobart
Further up the road is another cosy pub, tucked away in an old converted warehouse with a rustic and dimly-lit interior. Head upstairs to relax by the fireplace and enjoy views out over Salamanca Place. Best part is there’s a bar upstairs too, so you won’t need to keep making a trip downstairs to order your drinks!

Remember to bring your coat
Even those these roaring fires will keep you toasty warm, you’re still going to pop on a super warm jacket to help you get to these pubs. Check out our picks of the best and latest coats and jackets here.
