Surreal has been going strong now since 1997.

Its previous owner, Mel, wanted to create a total night out with great food, drinks and entertainment all under one roof.  

Now a new era begins with great things afoot.  A company heavily involved in great hospitality and iconic festivals like Snow Machine in both Japan and New Zealand, you are ensured that Surreal is going to be bigger and better in this new chapter and beyond.

Anything goes at Surreal – the choice is yours.  Relax and lounge with a cocktail, have a glass of wine, beer or one of our many spirits.  Catch up with friends and experience intimate or group dining in our restaurant. 

Our food over the years has continually evolved with our guests.  We keep it crowd pleasing and affordable, always loaded with flavour and our own signature twist.

Evenings are for fun and you can dance the night away with an array of local, national and international entertainment acts. 

Home to the Original and Best Rooftop Terrace in Town.  Fully covered and heated in winter and the ultimate sun trap in Summer.

What’s it like to

work with us?

If work isn’t fun, you’re not playing on the right team! 

We believe that if we look after our team then our team will do a great job of looking after the customers. 

If you get a kick out of the joy of giving service, creating great work stories and have awesome attention to detail then let’s talk.

We’re often on the lookout for like-minded individuals for both front of house and kitchen.
