The Ethos Eat Drink building is special, one of Hobart, Tasmania’s oldest and most unusual buildings. Once long forgotten, the historic building and it’s walled courtyard have been given a new lease on life. The oldest part of the building was constructed around 1820 and served as the stable of The Old Hobart Hotel. The hotel was demolished around 1830 and the building that now surrounds the walled stable yard was constructed soon after. Several other additions have been made to the building over the last 100 years or so, while Ash Chemist and Druggist operated throughout the 100 Elizabeth Street sight from around 1830 to 2000. The stable building that Ethos now occupies has lain dormant for around 100 years since the carriageway access has been blocked off.

Through the long renovation process Ethos have managed to salvage a lot of materials including hundreds of antique chemist bottles, which have been integrated into the restaurant as chandeliers.
