Tasmania’s coolest locale. Settle by the fire in the snowy, luxe interior of marble and plush grey leather at Institut Polaire. This cold climate wine and spirits bar embraces Tasmania’s long held status as the gateway to Antarctica with a passion for everything coldhearted. Sip a Süd Polaire Antarctic dry martini, savour new wave Tasmanian pinot noir or nurse your Alpine single malt.
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.
A menu of daily plates features fresh and organic fare from local growers and artisan producers. Tasty wine bar snacks embrace provincial style dishes from further afield. Look out for the mystery wine challenge and specialty G&T flights.
As the home of Süd Polaire gin and Domaine Simha wine, we offer a range of structured tasting experiences throughout the year. Tasting Experience bookings welcome.
