Sydney Hospo Merch You’ll Love to Wear

Sydney restaurant merch

Restaurant, bar and café merchandise — like caps, tees and tote bags with the venue’s logo emblazoned on it — let you show your loyalty and support. It might be a neighbourhood café you frequent every morning. The restaurant you go to for every special occasion. Or a pub you’ve been going to for the last decade.

“Wearing a restaurant T-shirt is akin to wearing a band tee to signal your identity,” The Guardian wrote in 2021. Forbes said in 2022: “Branded merchandise also gives consumers an extra way to vote with their dollars”.

Fortunately for Sydneysiders loyal to their venues, many have merch they can wear. Bondi Tony’s in Bondi has hoodies, crew neck jumpers and trucker hats. Butter Sydney has tees. Even the Sydney Opera House has merch.

But not all Sydney restaurant merch is created equal. Some have better designs and are more comfortable. Ahead, we round up some of those Sydney restaurant merch.

Butter Sydney

Surry Hills restaurant Butter Sydney is known for its fried chicken and hip hop, but in winter, it also serves ramen as part of its Butter Ramen Club. The special menu item has a $55 tee dedicated to it, reading “Slurpreme” in red across the chest. It’s available in black and white, and you can buy it at the restaurant or online.
