    Friendly service, great ambiance and a seemingly sophisticated design and theme for a cocktail bar. Fantastic cocktails and fairly priced when compared to surrounding options.

    The whole experience was wonderful, never been there before recommend by a close friend. Decor was spot on and very different from any where else I’ve been in Hobart or Australia m. The staff where very attentive but not too much so, just right for the mood of the group and even when had only book for six ten people turned up and the bar staff suggested we could have a bigger table which was fantastic service.

    Firstly had no food but couldn’t proceed with ticking a box.. bizarre Well the team were exceptional especially Ainsley (English fellow - think that’s his name) The whole team went out of their way to provide exceptional service and provide our party with late honour options which were appreciated!

    The staff at Evolve Spirits Bar were friendly and nice. They took the time to talk about and recommend great Tasmanian produced gins, the whiskey cabinets and were overall quite helpful. Ambience and concept of the bar is unique and interesting - loved it and have shared this with friends. The food was alright; flavours were there for the duck croquettes, but texture was a little too wet and the flan was unfortunately a little on the eggy side, but the caramel sauce was delicious.

    Disappointing. Our request for high table dining was not met. They “didn’t have it” but I showed them on my booking! Didn’t really seem to care. Wouldn’t bother going there again.

    Extensive selection of cocktails and spirits on offer with an interesting collection of fossils on display. Oh and the fish and chips was amazing. Super light batter and super crunchy!
