About Yazzbar


Located just North of Canberra next to the Hume Highway in the heart of the Yass Valley, Yazzbar is a cosy country wine bar showcasing the region’s best food, wine, and entertainment.

Yazzbar works in support of the local community, featuring the Canberra districts best cool climate wines, serving tapas style food from locally sourced produce, and with live music sessions performed by local talent.

Yazzbar welcomes all to come be a part of our community and relax in our sunny courtyard, or by our cosy fireplace to experience the region’s best.


Yazzbar Owners Penny Carlisle and Harvey Walsh moved to Yass in 2010 and fell in love with the region’s food, wine, and artistic community.

By 2013 Penny and Harvey had immersed themselves in the Yass way of life and proudly opened Yazzbar to share the Canberra Districts best wines, produce, and as a platform for talented local musicians.

Lovers of smooth jazz and fine vintages themselves, Penny and Harvey have brought something truly original to Yass, a place for the community.
