    Found this gem on our short trip to Hobart. They play live jazz music (although you should call ahead to see what time they play as we went at 7 but they weren’t on until 9). Even without the music the vibe is extremely cute, wine and cheeseboard a must

    Absolutely a consistent speakeasy atmosphere with the best collective of musicians passing through. Great to come here rather than to a mass pub - the best in Hobart in that respect.

    Pablo's provided a great atmosphere for cocktail lovers and music/jazz lovers alike. On top of that, the snack menu provided some options for delicious Indian bites at a very reasonable price- what more can one ask for! My only recommendation to Pablo's was to perhaps list on their website what time the music starts from as when we booked for 7pm (they open at 5pm), we were under the assumption that there would already be music playing by that time, but in actual fact, music only starts at 8pm and the place was quite empty before that time (we were the only patrons). Had we known, we would have booked from 8pm onwards :)

    Pablos Cocktails and Dreams had a nice vibe and ambience. Unfortunately no food available to purchase and so while we booked the 6.10pm time slot and soul music was due at 7pm it did not come on until around 8pm. We asked if we could go out and come back and they said no problem and we had a cocktail each and headed out about 6.40 to get food and came back around 7.25pm. We were told they sold food some nights but the Indian restaurant next door that supplies the food was closed on Sundays. They were still doing sound checks at that stage. Our table by the stage was booked at 8.15pm by another and we were not allowed to return to it instead being put in a back room where we could hear but not see the musician. The back room was still nice although my partner found herself slipping off the seat. Had we not gone for dinner we would have had two hours of cocktails at $21-$22 a pop with my partner having not had lunch and 1 hr 15 min drive home to Taranna ahead of us. It is a great venue. I would recommend it. The soul music guy was good to listen to. To the owner adding basic tapas or something to eat would be great and is necessary along with coffee for after the cocktails and preparing for the drive home. So if you do go eat before you come at a very early hour and our experience was the music comes on about an hour after it was advertised. Yet a beautiful venue and vibe and the volume of the music was good allowing conversation. It was our first time to see live music in two years. A littie disappointing that we didn't actually see it except when leaving but we had a good night. It is challenging covid times and the interior vibe was very well done, the bar staff friendly, the performer mellow and enjoyable. An enjoyable night. A plate of chicken wings, our original table and music at the advertised time would have made it close to perfect.

    I loved the fact that there was a host on the floor, the music was great and a feature but not over bearingly loud. The cocktails were great and really classic. Such a great hidden gem where you are instantly immersed in the atmosphere and lose track of the outside world for a bit. Loved it.

    Pablo’s was fabulous.....my daughter and I discovered it on Google maps, tucked away in a little laneway. THANK YOU GOOGLE! We probably would never have found Pablo’s otherwise. It is a gorgeous little space, numbers are limited so it is not over crowded... just right! I had the best whiskey sour I have ever had...and I’ve had a few. It was so good we went back the next night and had a couple more. Snacks from the Indian restaurant next door are available and delivered to your table....So good! Don’t miss it!
