If you are looking for a unique experience during your next trip to Tasmania, you may want to investigate what is believed to be the island state’s smallest licensed premises.
Burnie is home to the tiny Quaff and Gobble wine bar, which has a seating capacity of 20 and is run by the owner, accountant Neale Gillet, purely as a hobby and a way for him to share his passion for wine.
The facility was identified by the Sydney Morning Herald recently as one of Tasmania’s “undiscovered gems” – but you’ll want to plan your visit here carefully, as the bar is only open for six hours each week.
Open only on Thursdays and Fridays from 17:00 to 20:00, you’ll find the Quaff and Gobble offers an excellent range of unique and unusual wines.
Of course, you’ll be met with a characteristically warm Tasmanian welcome – and some 1970s music to set the mood.
Earlier this year, Gillet told Hobart’s The Mercury that a visit to the Quaff and Gobble is a “quiet and personal experience” and added that outdoor tables are also available for customers during the warmer months of the year.
