The Boiler Room Beer Garden
there are no venues to display.
Open: Tue-Sun midday-11pm
Like many bars these days, everything old is new again at the Abbotsford Convent. The grassroots arts precinct has recently received a facelift to its food and booze offerings with the conversion of the old boiler room into a beer-dispensing, wine-pouring, coffee-making hole in the wall - the Boiler Room Beer Garden. With most of the seating may be situated outdoors (there are a few chairs and tables inside, but bring warm clothes just in case), there is plenty of space to park under the native trees and relax with a micro-brew or a glass of organic wine. And while the serving window may be small (literally, they serve from a window), the choice of alcohol is satisfyingly large. Organic wines and beers are the order of the day, with local producers receiving good promotion. Local brewery 3 Ravens are well represented with their Bronze, Blonde and White brews on offer. Also of note is the entirely organic Grand Ridge selection of bottled beer - the perfect choice for the environmentally and health-conscious among you. Snacks and small meals can be had from the Convent Bakery attached, or larger fare can be found around the corner at Lentil as Anything. Either way you go, a stop by the Boiler Room is liable to end in an evening of rollicking booze, food and fun.
