Henry Jones Art Hotel

The Henry Jones Art Hotel is a pioneering bolthole and was the first in Australia to centre its offerings around the art world, with many others following suit since.

Once a jam warehouse, the hotel flawlessly merges its heritage and architecture with contemporary art touches everywhere.

Exposed beams and bricks create an industrial-chic look, and as you move through the building you’ll note an eclectic mixture of handpicked pieces of art, over 500 in fact. While many have been created by graduates of the nearby School of Art and Design, others are the work of some of the region’s most distinguished artists.

The Henry Jones Art Hotel is certainly crammed full of character then, not only due to the avant-garde nature of its décor but also thanks to top views across the city of Hobart from its central location.

As a result, you’ll be able to really absorb and feel a part of the vibrant energy that abounds here, both within the hotel and outside. Jam Packed Café, named in a friendly nod to the building’s historic past, is a great place to make a pit-stop during the day and come evening the cocktails served by award-winning bar staff at the IXL Long Bar are a real treat to bring the day to a close.
