WINE BAR & KITCHEN


Tasmania's coolest locale. Settle by the fire 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 bar 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 house cured 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 small 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.

Don't miss the signature Süd Polaire Antarctic dry martini.

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