The Resistance started back in 2015 with a strong focus on providing great value to the community that we are in, We saw that the hospitality business in Hawthorn, VIC was overcrowded with places providing below average value and service to people. So we started as an alternative to that market with a strong focus on serving and helping the community in many positive ways. We simply wants to make the world a bit more colourful place.


We were the only burger place in Australia to bake the Burger Buns in House back in 2015. That made us a reputation as one of the best burgers in Hawthorn and Melbourne. Everything from meat to produce sourced locally helping small businesses like us. We want to bring world class food with a competitive price tag to help the world see a difference. We’ve created the most flavour full burgers Melbourne have never seen before. From there on we are known as one of the best burgers in Australia by many locals and foreigners.


We created a Cocktail Bar in Hawthorn where you can come in your thongs. No need of fancy attire (Coz we aren’t fancy at all)  come in taste a world class cocktail created by someone whose really passionate about mixing flavours. It’s that simple.


Burgers and Cocktails creates a relaxed atmosphere. So what can we do to make it more relaxed? Yeap that’s right  Shisha is the best but with a difference, We are the only Shisha/Hookah lounge in Melbourne / Hawthorn to focused on serving 100% Tobacco-Free, Chemical Free, Tar Free Shisha/Hookah. Relax with a Shisha without risking your Health.

The Resistance is where you Chill at. Come in feel the difference and we’ll be family for Life.
