We dropped down to the bar a couple of times during the evening. The service was always friendly and attentive and there was a good variety of wines and cocktails available. The atmosphere was quite cosy and romantic and a group was playing. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

A great atmospheric bar beside the main entrance to Wrest Point. Fantastic drinks and very active but very tight crowd due to popularity

Yes the drinks are a bit pricey, no beer on tap but an interesting venue that feels like a birdcage, i felt like i was in the 70's. The lighting was low and the entertainment was smooth, it is what it is...a bar in a casino.

It is a nice experience having a couple of cocktails by the piano however they are very expensive so one cocktail was enough.

A very casual bar with retro 70-80's decor. Showing its age as is the entire complex but a nice place for a relaxing drink

Description
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, it's 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. Found just inside the door of Wrest Point Tasmania, the intriguing design begs to pop your head in. 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. Open daily from 5pm until late. 18+ venue.
