About Sweat Shop
WORK HARD. IT’S WHAT WE DO AND WE DO IT WELL. IT’S NOT AN EASY JOURNEY, BUT WE DON’T DO IT ‘CAUSE IT’S EASY. WE DO IT ‘CAUSE IT’S HARD. LIKE OUR BOUTIQUE BREWERY. IT NEVER QUITS, RUNNING OUT FRESH, NEW BREWS AND HOPPED-UP BEERS. THE BEST IN THE WORLD. AND A CRAFTY KITCHEN. IT NEVER SLEEPS, CREATING HOME-MADE BBQ RUBS AND SMOKEHOUSE MEATS. KISSED BY FLAME AND LICKED BY SMOKE. WE’RE THE HARDEST WORKING BAR IN AUCKLAND, BRED ON BLOOD, SWEAT AND BEERS. WELCOME TO THE SWEAT SHOP.
(Mostly) great time booking our work event with Sweat Shop last Friday! We had a table all night, with about 25 people there from 6-midnight. Had lots of beer and food, with above average service. However, of course, we came for Beat Council. Great dancing and tunes as expected. At about 1am, a group hug for our departing friend oddly caught the eye of some bouncers who bemoaned our enthusiasm. We were (not-so-nicely) asked to leave, all of us, for reasons unclear. I, the host, asked numerous times for clarification and got none. We're it not for our preexisting intentions to leave, I would have been furious. Alas, last time to go to Sweat Shop. Thanks anyway!
Great service and very welcoming to the 2 dogs we had with us
Marvelous best venue in the city!!!!
Hosted an event on Friday night at Sweatshop, attracting 60+ individuals who were super respectful and stuck to ourselves. Yet the bouncer with the weird chin beard thought it would be cool to harrass some of the group and didn't let a bunch of people in for no reason. The bartending staff were great though, especially the asian bartender, really made the experience better!
Great food, good location, good atmosphere
The squid was not the frshest and didn’t arrive with any garnish/side salad somit looked a bit cheap and nasty. Other than that, great place, awesome staff and fantastic selection of drinks. Great beers!
Hi Georgia, thanks for scoring us on the different aspects of our venue! Looks like we did pretty well according to your standards, which we're really glad to hear :) we look forward to hosting you again.
Hi Joseph, our vibes are very important to us so I'm glad we hit the mark! We look forward to hosting you again - cheers for the feedback :)
Love coming in for a bite to eat and a few drinks.
Hi Vanessa, so glad that we scored perfectly!! It was our pleasure to host you and we look forward to seeing you again.
It was great :)
Hi Heidi, great for you is great for us!! Really glad that we nailed everything for you, we look forward to hosting you again.
Our waitress was lovely on the night and very accommodating, the only let down for us was the booking process to begin with but as soon as we dealt with someone else it was smooth and night was great, bonus to have a fantasitc live band.
Hi Roger, glad it was a great night for you. We hope you'll pop in again soon!
Teresa is truly the best staff member there that we have dealt with
Thanks Terri!! Appreciate that you've been happy with the service. We look forward to hosting you again - SSBK
Always a great atmosphere and good food.
Hi Gina, so glad we've been able to impress again and again! We look forward to having you back, thanks! SSBK
We had our end of year work do here and it was just easy. One email and it was all sorted. Great wristband system for open bar for our staff, great vibe and wonderful attentive staff. Really appreciate your work and service and well done. Compliments to the chef for delicious meals and fast service as well.
Hi Arrianna, so glad to hear that organising an event with us was stress free, we definitely try and do the hard work for our customers!! I'll pass the feedback onto the chef, many thanks and we hope to host you again! - SSBK
I took clients out for a Christmas lunch and it was perfect. The food was great, and of course the drinks were great. Will definitely be bringing clients back there again, as well as friends and family.
Hi Richard, thank you so much for the glowing review! Really glad that we impressed and appreciate the recommendation to clients, friends and family. We'll see you again soon! SSBK

My group had a lovely time at the sweatshop!
Hi Grace, great to hear!! Sorry that you felt the value for $$ wasn't quite a 5/5 but it's good for us to know where we can improve. Many thanks and we look forward to hosting you again!
Awesome place with great music and staff. Would always highly recommend for any occasion.
Hi Dominique, so glad to hear this! Recommendations are very much appreciated so thank you so much for that. We look forward to hosting you again - SSBK
Mark and the team at the Sweat Shop handled our group of over 200 builders with ease. Fantastic food, drink, venue, atmosphere and team. We’ll be back again next year. 🥳👍🏼
Hi Simon, always a pleasure to host your group, thanks for choosing us for your Christmas party! We look forward to hosting you again soon - SSBK
So unfortunately our service was somewhat poor. We had new staff, that weren't attentive - and didn't have a customer-focus whatsoever... we were hosting customers, so as a result, it's unlikely that we'll bring customers back.
Hi Nolan, really sorry to hear you weren't happy with your experience. I've passed this feedback onto our management team who train new staff to see what happened here and make a big effort to improve for next time. We hope that you do come back so we can prove we're capable of a great experience! Many thanks! SSBK
Perfect place to spend a Friday night! - Food's delicious and love the band :)
Hi Raveena, thanks heaps for the review! We look forward to seeing you again - SSBK
We celebrated my friends Hens party here with the Hens Package Sweat Shop offer. Even though i live in Australia, the Event Manager was an absolute gem throughout the whole process of organising. Our group of 19 females "gone wild" really enjoyed their time there, i highly recommend this establishment.
