The Quarry Salamanca
Melding rustic touches with contemporary design, the Quarry provides an upmarket opportunity to sample some of Tasmania's finest wines. Housed in a converted warehouse space, this mix of restaurant and bar specialises in locally produced reds. There are over 70 wines available by the bottle and a good percentage of those come from local vineyards. If you're after something a little stronger, the Quarry Apple Martini should get that monkey off your back.
Whichever option you go with, the front bar is relaxed and spacious. Sandstone walls offset the ultra -modern long bar nicely and the whole place is given a warm hue thanks to the sedate, modern lighting. Exposed beams and a treated industrial floor reinforce this marriage of old and new. If you're looking to get some crisp Tasmanian air, there's also a heated courtyard with its own bar.
Although it's only a couple of years old, the Quarry has already established itself as both a popular restaurant and a great place to saddle up for a drink on cold winter nights. Walking that fine line between rustic Tasmanian charm and cosmopolitan cocktail lounge, it's a welcome addition to region's bar scene.
