At The Henry Jones Art Hotel, history and art collide. Located in the Hunter Street precinct, Hobart’s oldest waterfront warehouses have been thoughtfully reimagined as Australia’s first dedicated art hotel.
Through the rise and fall of industries, including Sir Henry Jones’ IXL jam empire, the harbourside location has been central to Hobart and its people. Today, the precinct hums with galleries, award-winning restaurants, bars and cafes.
The atrium is one of the largest glass atriums in the Southern Hemisphere. At three storeys high, the IXL Atrium is a grand space. It is sensitively integrated into the fabric of the original building, revealing glimpses of the former jam factory through its interior.
The Welcome Reception is a stand-up event with casual seating. Guests will experience a powerful aboriginal welcome, Tasmanian produce including renowned Cape Grim beef, and whisky tastings from one of Tasmania’s well-known distilleries.
