Hobart is becoming so art centric, it’s seriously brilliant. The Alabama Hotel is situated in the inner city and has been recently revived and re-opened after a near-decade long hiatus. Its boutique budget status keeps a personal creative feel without costing a year’s pay. Artwork on the walls includes Tom O’Hearn, Aeden Howlett and Stu Dobell, but there’s many, many more local artists featured. When you say ‘local artists’ in Hobart, that means they’re good.
