Star Bar Café

Enter through the heritage listed façade and be welcomed into a modern bar, restaurant, dining and entertainment experience. Downstairs enjoy a meal from our modern Australian cuisine menu and a drink from the selection of premium Tasmanian, Australian and imported wines, beers & spirits, or for the adventurous why not try one of the Star Bar cocktails. During the day the café atmosphere enables you to enjoy a freshly ground Genovese coffee or an alternative beverage and a bite to eat with friends. In the winter months an open fireplace and natural gas heating creates a cosy atmosphere on those chilly Tasmanian days.

Star Bar Café & Hotel is one of Launceston’s most iconic hotels. A long history runs through the Star Bar building, originally constructed from convict brick in the 1800’s, the Heritage listed façade has welcomed many a weary traveller. The Star Bar, after extensive renovations, was relaunched in 1991, with Sir Joh Bjelke Peterson opening the night by cooking the very first pizza in the imported Italian wood fired pizza oven.

Through a number of owners, the ‘Star Bar’ has been a main stay in Launceston, running for over 21 years. In February 2007, the current owner, Michael Acquarola purchased the Star Bar and through his tenure has seen the Star Bar develop into one of Launceston’s premium venues. The Star Bar offers a premium bar and restaurant with an extensive day and night trade, high class function and conferencing facilities, 3.5 star boutique accommodation as well as being Launceston’s hub for late night live music and entertainment.

The Star Bar's business ethos is that of excellence in customer service. They deliver this through the provision of top quality produce, facilities and service delivered to the customer by the chefs, bar staff and management team who continually go through training and development to ever-improve the quality of your experience at Star Bar Café & Hotel.
