About Us

Star Bar Café & Hotel is one of Launceston’s most iconic hotels. A long history runs through the Star Bar building, originally constructed from convict brick in the 1800’s, the Heritage listed façade has welcomes many a weary traveller. The Star Bar, after extensive renovations, was relaunched in 1991, with Sir Joh Bjelke Peterson opening the night by cooking the very first pizza in the imported Italian wood fired pizza oven.

Through a number of owners, the ‘Star Bar’ has been a main stay in Launceston, running for over 21 years. In February 2007, the current owner, Mr Michael Acquarola purchased the Star Bar and through his tenure has seen the Star Bar develop into one of Launceston’s premium venues. The Star Bar offers a premium Bar & Restaurant with an extensive day and night trade, high class function and conferencing facilities, 3.5 STAR boutique accommodation as well as being Launceston’s hub for late night live music and entertainment.
