Hobart is welcoming the addition of Cargo Bar Pizza Lounge to its ranks in the Historic Salamanca precinct. This wine bar and pizza spot boasts the creative attentions of Paul Kelly Design. The space previous to the renovation was two tenancies; one a fish and chip shop and the other a historic walkway with cobble stone floors, housing an ATM. A protracted battle was undertaken to obtain local government clearance to open the two tenancies to each other, but Hobart’s hospitality scene is thankfully better off following the eventual approval. The interior of the space prior to the renovation consisted of painted stone walls that were
constructed of a mixture of plaster and rubble – an early method of securing the sandstone/bluestone walls. Not being the most appealing of surfaces the rear of the bar has been covered with handmade convict bricks that were taken from a demolished turn of the century building resulting in a more original feel when combined with the original timber joists covering the ceiling space. Combined with raw steel, white tiles, plenty of light and comfy banquets the space has attracted the local punters as the Cargo has been turning out more that 1200 pizzas a week.
