The Globe Hotel is in its 180th year, having first been established in 1839.
To put this in perspective, Ikey Solomon was still walking the streets of Hobart, Texas was still part of Mexico and Charles Darwin was 20 years away from publishing 'The Origin of the Species'.
Like Hobart, the Globe Hotel has changed a lot in that time. Ikey and his peers would not recognise the place today. Its colonial past made way in 1937 and the hotel was demolished in it's 99th year and a more modern establishment built. No doubt within its walls in either incarnation there would be many a tale of tragedy, triumph, derring doo and momentous local and world events that have transpired over time.
Now the hotel is a social hub for the South Hobart and greater Hobart community, a great place to unwind over a drink with friends. You can also have a meal in the dining room or bar, have a flutter, grab a bottle of wine or a six pack or watch the game on their big screens.
Whilst respectful of it's past, the Globe has recently undegone major renovations, has revamped its bar, loung and bottleshop, and has modernised all hotel spaces while maintaining an authentic hotel experience for patrons.
