The Trader Bar

Open from 8am weekdays

A bar on weekend afternoons/nights, the Trader is a vibe for that Saturday or Sunday morning work that you just want to do over a coffee with a fresh croissant. There are couches, high tables, or even a spot at the bar, and the casual weekend atmosphere is the perfect ingredient for productivity.

Sweet Brew

Open 6.30am – 3pm

Since they’ve renovated and opened up their back room, there’s a lot more space to work at Sweet Brew – but it’s also a great creative space to get your brain working. Not only filled with plants, there’s even a trendy boutique – Skin – out the back, and the steady flow of F45ers after a workout gives a good ambience.

There are large tables for meetings, but also a small little nook with power points – and we hear customer WiFi is coming soon so stay tuned for that!
