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

Sip a signature Süd Polaire Antarctic dry martini, savour new wave Tasmanian pinot noir, alpine amaro or nurse your single malt whisky. Look out for the mystery wine challenge and specialty G&T flights.

Enjoy a grazing dinner menu of plates featuring fresh and organic fare from local growers and artisan producers.  

Wine bar snacks embrace provincial influences from further afield.

fine WINE  SPIRITS  cocktails


At Institut Polaire, you will fall in love with graceful wine, aromatic gin and artisan whisky from cool cats across Tasmania and beyond. 
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. Think grower Champagne, ‘riesling to die for’ and pinot noir from emerging local talent alongside international icons. You will find cult names like Keller, Raveneau, Robinot, Ganevat, Mikulski and Weinbach along with our own Domaine Simha.

Masterfully crafted cocktails draw on classic roots inspired with Tasmanian flavour like smoked applewood salt, leatherwood honey and mountain pepperberry bitters. A highly curated spirit library showcases the best of Tasmania alongside English, Icelandic, Belgian and Nordic gin, alpine amaro, absinthe, aquavit and Islay, Japanese, Finnish and Alpine malt whiskies.

Try an økar spritz, cucumber infused icebreaker, aurora, yuzu sour, glacier, sazerac or smoky old fashioned. 

Your choice of Antarctic dry, saffron, gibson, breakfast or vesper martini crafted with our own Süd Polaire gin is a house speciality.
