If You’re Not Buying Restaurant Merch, You’re Sincerely Missing Out


Delicious are the dishes that our favourite restaurants plate up for us, but Sydney’s best eateries are serving looks in addition to food and drinks. And if you didn’t yet know that you could level up your fashion game while simultaneously scoring a feed, then boy do we have good news for you.

At a number of Australia’s best restaurants, you will find super cool merch that includes T-shirts, tote bags and accessories. Often designed in collaboration with local artists and designers, purchasing and donning merch from your local bars and restaurants is a sure-fire way to go beyond a tip in your support for the business.

Some available to buy online, while some require a visit to the restaurant — below we’ve rounded up some of the best restaurant merch from Sydney establishments.

Cantina OK!

Recognised in 28th place in the top 50 bars around the world list for 2020, Cantina OK! not only makes killer margaritas but super cool apparel. The Sydney CBD bar recently dropped a few T-shirts, plus accessories that include a pin and a tote bag.

One way to show your appreciation for the beloved brewery is by proudly donning its merch while you sip tinnies in the sunshine. Grifter Brewing Co. has an extensive collection of apparel and accessories, all of which are available to buy on the site.

LP’s Quality Meats

The butcher, BBQ joint and upscale eatery is known for its quality meats, and yet, those in-the-know will do just about anything to get their hands on an LP’s T-shirt. Merch drops sporadically and sells out fast, so best to keep an eye on the official Instagram to find out when apparel becomes available.

Bella Bruta

Newtown pizza restaurant Bella Bruta sporadically drops T-shirts, the last collection of which was designed in collaboration with Tork Design. While they’re currently out of stock, keep an eye on the Instagram to be alerted of new drops.

Continental Deli

The popular Sydney deli and bar is known for its canned goods, and its merch is no different. While you can get a martini in a can, you can also pick up a new T-shirt in a tin. Continental’s tote bags are also perfect for filling with preserves after a visit.


Manly’s favourite natural wine store offers more than just a Pet Nat, although they have a bunch of amazing bottles to try. The wine store, named after Winona Rider (we think?), stocks a small selection of street-worthy merch including the très drôle ‘Wino Forever’ tote bag.

The Sydney ramen joint has some of the cutest merch around. Available for purchase in either the Redfern or Randwick stores, you can rep your fave ramen by wearing a RaRa x Champion T-shirt, hoodie, tote or embroidered cap.
