The Republic Bar
Huge outside beer garden, live music, quiz nights and a
groovy old pub feel is what you get at the Republic Bar and Café in North
In addition to their lunch and dinner menu, including the famous Jack Daniels steak which is a winner with This Girl, they also have a $10 lunch menu and a sharing food and tapas menu. This Girl and
James’ mum have spent some glorious lunch breaks in their beer garden over our long summer.
When we crave nachos, the Republic is where
we go – the nachos are some of the best we’ve had in Hobart. We’re also a fan of their croquettes,
tempura mushrooms and the dip plate. There
are so many things to choose from and they make for the perfect quick lunch
Their beer garden set up is perfect for enjoying beautiful
sunny days but is also partly under cover, perfect for Tassie’s unpredictable
weather! There is plenty of space inside too and for those upcoming colder
days, they have a couple of fireplaces to cosy around.
Their back restaurant section doubles as a gallery for local
artists and the bar section is where you can get that real pub experience, a
little dark, a little grungy, a little loud and a lot cool!
The Republic has an impressive line-up of live acts to keep
you entertained, local, mainland and international artists have graced their
stage and Beer Garden. They have quiz
nights for those of us that love to test our brains over a feed and/or
drink. They also provide a pretty decent
after work free sausage sizzle or BBQ on Friday afternoons, a great way to get
the weekend started.
