Evolve Spirits Bar

Humans have long tried to understand our world, explaining its complexities through theories of spirituality, biology, geography and astronomy. This insatiable thirst for understanding fuelled a period of unprecedented discovery during the 1800s with the mapping of our globe, the industrial revolution and the collection of countless botanical, zoological and geological artefacts. Our minds expanded with curiosity as mysterious fossils were uncovered; answering some questions, but presenting thousands more. And just as palaeontologists have captured our imagination with incredible beasts from centuries past, so too have the world’s master distillers by hand-crafting the finest spirits through alchemy of earth’s elements. These spirits endeavour to explain the complexities of our world and are celebrated, wholeheartedly, at Evolve Spirits Bar. As a luxury lounge bar, Evolve offers a sophisticated and intimate hospitality experience on Hobart’s historic waterfront. Its ornate design, rare spirits list and engaging service are befitting of Hobart’s most enviable wharfside location, within the MACq 01 Hotel building.

Fat Pig Farm

Fat Pig Farm is home to Gourmet Farmer Matthew Evans and Sadie Chrestman. Together, they run their 70 acre family farm in the beautiful Huon Valley, south of Hobart, where they live and nurture food from the soil to turn into great meals for the farmhouse table. Along with their namesake Wessex Saddleback pigs, the farm is home to chooks, a beef herd, a pair of full cream cows, a market garden and heritage apple orchard. They host Friday Feasts, taking what’s great from the garden and turning it into long, lazy meals shared around their extended table. Their cookery school is a hands-on workshop experience, over one or two days, where you’ll get to visit the pigs, raid the garden and then bring the bounty back to the kitchen to cook it up before sharing the produce at one of their signature feasts. Matthew Evans is a chef by trade, an advocate for sustainable seafood and is a strong believer in knowing and trusting what you eat. Fat Pig Farm is an extension of this philosophy and you’re invited to share in the spoils!
