Launceston’s bar scene is a vibrant mix of relaxed traditional pubs and contemporary wine and cocktail bars.
First licensed in 1881, The Royal Oak is a staple in the Launceston pub scene. This reliable old favourite is frequented by the young and young at heart, enjoying live music, local beers and honest food. Another favourite on the live music scene is The Irish, showcasing local and national artists 7 nights a week. If it’s a relaxed cocktail or glass of wine you’re seeking out, Baker’s Lane is renowned for its espresso martinis, while at Mud Bar you’ll mix with a good crowd sampling the impressive wines and spirits on offer.
Just after a good beer and a great chat? Sporties and Kings Bridge will make you feel right at home, while Saint John Craft Beer Bar is a craft beer specialist where you’ll find a whole world of interesting and flavoursome beers from near and far. A bunch of tasty food menus generally accompany the beer, wine or cocktail lists should the hunger strike – the wood-fired pizzas from Star Bar are a winner!
