    My partner and I came down from Melbourne for my birthday and we wanted to bar hop for the last night. We happened to have stumbled onto booking the Arras experience at Story Bar while browsing and trying to look at menus etc. Turned out so well! Great area, great value, service was excellent. Special thanks and shout out again to James for the experience and lovely interaction/chats we had. We will definitely be back when we’re in Hobart again.

    It was an amazing experience. I took my friend for her birthday and she was blown away as she had no idea what was in store for her. Joel was fantastic and gave us the history of Arras with each glass. The canapés were to die for. I would definitely be coming back. Cheers Susan Kelly

    Highly recommend. Asked to have only first two tastings poured to retain bubbles. Joel happily agreed and returned when we were ready for the next two.

    We had the Arras champagne tasting and canapes which were both amazing. Also exceptional service from the waiter, who was very responsive to our needs at all times.
