WINE BAR & KITCHEN


Tasmania's coolest locale. Settle in the snowy interior of marble and plush grey leather at Institut Polaire.

This cold climate wine bar and kitchen embraces Tasmania’s long held status as the gateway to Antarctica with a passion for everything coldhearted.

Enjoy our seasonal set menu or fresh a la carte plates featuring ethical produce from quality local growers, fishers and farmers.

Think native angasi oysters, a changing repertoire of handmade pasta, pristine seafood from the Southern Ocean and salumi from the berkel slicer. An interest in alpine food traditions like pickling, fermenting, smoking and curing drives our spirit of exploration. 

​Awarded Australia's best wine list (100 wines) in Australia's wine list of the year awards. 

Dive into some of the world's most revered and challenging cold climate terroir with an emphasis on low input, organic, biodynamic farming and natural techniques. 

Sip a signature Süd Polaire Antarctic dry martini, alpine amaro, sake or nurse your single malt whisky from a highly curated spirit library.

Look out for the specialty Domaine Simha wine and Süd Polaire G&T flights.
