Providing a relaxed urban setting to meet with friends and family, and boasting an impressive al fresco space, The Social is a unique café and bar at the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre, home of Merrigong Theatre Company, in the heart of Wollongong’s vibrant Arts Precinct. Choose from a café menu of tasty breakfast items, salads and sandwiches, substantial meals, sweet treats, and our delicious coffee blend from Seven Miles – The Cat’s Pyjamas.

Visitors to the Centre can relax and enjoy the sophisticated selection of international beers and wines available from the bar menu.

Theatre patrons can enjoy pre-theatre dining options, as well as pre-performance drinks with two bars servicing the Bruce Gordon and IMB Theatres.

The stylish venue, contemporary food, and fantastic coffee in partnership with Seven Miles, creates an enjoyable and functional space for the local community that services everyone from city workers to theatre patrons alike.
