“A-hoy me hearties!”calls the Skipper.
“Where’s Ginger, Mary-Anne, the Howell’s, the Professor and, yes, Gilligan too?”
“Let’s head on over to South-Seas Cocktail Lounge before word get’s out!”

South-Seas Cocktail Lounge might be tucked away down a lane-way along Castray Esplanade in Hobart but let me tell you it is well worth seeking out!

We’ve been a couple of times now for a pre-dinner drink and have been impressed not only with the cocktails but, for the rum enthusiasts amongst you, there is a long list that would have many yea ol’ smuggler smiling.

Behind a bamboo door you’ll be greeted with all the warmth of a tropical island and a wonderful array of authentic artefacts such as Tiki’s, Hawaiian shirts, maps of buried treasure, ropes, hoists and a whole lot more decked throughout that really gives the bar a ‘Gilligan’s Island’ atmosphere.

There is a central bar, a small lounge area and a couple of side tables to boot. But, be warned you’ll need to take your chance or wait until other patrons leave as it can fill up pretty fast.

Open the bamboo door to a wonderful world of rum-a-dum-dum!
