Ive frequented the republic like so many music lovers in Hobart. The bar staff are great, always efficient, and the drink prices are competitive. They are let down by recent changes. The sound system is run by a guy who must be deaf, as it's often way way too loud. It's a bit hit and miss, but as a musi myself I value my hearing, so I always bring plugs. The food used to be better, but there has been some changes and it just isn't as good. I used to love the chicken breast, but last time I ordered it it wasn't a breast fillet, rather it was like a giant chicken nugget - processed chicken. I also got food poisoning within 2 hours of that meal.
Come for the music (with plugs), eat before you come, enjoy a nice beer.
