I recently took my husband and close friend to Baxters. After trying to remember where it was, we found it. From the wall of whiskey to the fresh apple juice drinks to the amazingly skilled bar tender, this place is awesome. We will be back.

I did a lot of research on trip advisor to find a great trendy bar that maybe had great white wine selection or whiskey as it was my husband birthday on the 13th a long with out wedding anniversary. So I wanted to surprise him somewhere special and different. I was bit put off at first with some comments about... More

This is the place for Single Malt lovers. Hidden away in a basement, down the end of a dark alley, and then down some metal stairs into a basement, the Baxter In is a jazz-filled "speak-easy" type of cafe well worth a visit (if you can find it!)

My wife and I wanted to try some Tasmanian whisky, and we found the Baxter Inn on the internet, which was walking distance from our hotel. It is hard to find - we had to ask in the shop next door, and they pointed us down the alley. It's really like stepping back in time to a 1920's speakeasy. The... More

We were glad we had read some reviews and got some clues on how to find it, otherwise it would have been very difficult to locate! The effort is well worth it however, as The Baxter Inn is one of the best bars we've ever been to, if not THE best. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, even if... More

I can't imagine ever finding this place if a friend didn't take me, but it is a very cool speakeasy style bar with an amazing bar and cosy, intimate setting. Very pricey and busy though. Cocktails give little change from $20 each

I first came here two or so years ago, and fell in love with the place! The decor, scotch and ambiance awaken every one of your senses. Nowadays when I go there I'm stuck in a line for twenty or so minutes, so obviously word of mouth has spread! So please please stop going there!

What a gorgeous bar this is! The bar staff are incredibly good. We sat at the bar, chatted to the barman who was very attentive! She was extremely attentive and knowledgeable, a credit to the amazing Bar Team that is already here! Would highly recommend if you love Whisky, a good time with your friends and something a little different... More
