The Bob Hawke Beer and Leisure Centre is a brewery / bar / Chinese restaurant where you can have beer and a nostalgic hat tip to Bob Hawke, Australia’s own past PM and beer lover / skoller extraordinaire!
Find the venue in a transformed factory unit, with a huge mural of Bob in his athletic shorts outside. Indoors, the venture sees decor and theming straight out of his era with old school bar vibes, Hawkes own pool room, memorabilia and an 80s themed Chinese Restaurant – Lucky Prawn (complete with a large prawn).
The restaurant is a quaint reminder of an old school 80’s Chinese restaurant.
The restaurant has red carpet, lazy Susan’s for your food to spin around like old times and a menu of the Chinese favourites as well as some unique options. We had prawn crackers, san choi bao, steamed dumplings, pipis, steamed dumplings, fried rice and chicken wings. We were too full but there’s even a deep-fried Viennetta! Order via a QR code and it comes in no time.
