Perfect for long lunches, after work drinks and late night dancing, Sweat Shop can be found in the well-loved hospo spot that is 7 Sale Street in the Victoria Park precinct.

Flaunting the sun bathed deck, the space is now lined with rows of picnic tables, hand built by their own hardworking staff and ready for the expected masses of sun loving punters. Indoors, the hard working sweat shop theme flows on with jean covered bar stools, many made from donated jeans of the staff. The brewery has also been excavated from the behind closed doors and is now proudly on display at the rear of the bar, available for any inquisitive beer enthusiast to have a geeze

Integrating the obvious Americana meets New Zealand theme, the menu and food offering is packed with American style eats, conjured up in the kitchen with fresh local produce. Pride on the menu is the meat offering from Sweat Shop’s in-house grill and smokehouse. Brewing their own in-house lager, pale ale and American pale ale, each of the beers are easily sessioanable.
