Big things are at STEAK with this auction…

The iconic Hog’s Breath Cafe in Coolangatta is closing down… Check out what’s up for grabs!

It all started in Airlie Beach, North Queensland in 1989… The first Hog’s Breath Café opened its doors on what was a journey to becoming one of the most iconic restaurant names in Australasia.

But sadly, the doors are closing on one of these famous steakhouses that has taken up residence on Coolangatta’s main street for more than 10 years.

Having been sent into liquidation, the big-name restaurant has chosen to sell their hospitality and kitchen stock through us here at Lloyds Auctions.

Hog’s Breath in Coolangatta was the perfect location to relax and enjoy the famed “Hogspitality”.

With spectacular beaches and famous surf breaks, Coolangatta is a favourite retreat for families and surfers, and Hog’s Breath catered to them all.

What can I buy for my home?

This is your chance to pick up a piece of Coolangatta history. If this was your favourite family restaurant then you can carry on the celebrations and family occasions around the same table, but now in your home!

Quality timber top tables, chairs and bar stools can take pride of place in your home with a great story behind them. Not only are they functional but if they could talk, they would be able to tell some tales!

Not only is the well-loved furniture up for grabs but so is the distinctive décor that made the Hog’s Breath dining experience unmistakable.

The adored Corona bottle salt and pepper shakers are up for auction alongside memorabilia that would make an unbelievable addition to any man cave across the country.

The life-size replica ‘Harley Davidson Motorcycles’ gas pump has been grabbing some serious attention online already. It is completely UNRESERVED, so it is a fantastic chance for a bargain talking point!

What can I buy for my business?

But maybe cool stuff for your home isn’t what you’re interested in…

This is the perfect opportunity to snag some kitchen, catering and hospitality gear for a small start-up or existing business.

Whether it’s a food truck, a café or a busy restaurant, there is something here that would suit any kitchen.

Everything, from plates and cutlery through to commercial microwaves, salamanders and deep fryers, are ready for a new home! 

Nothing has been missed, even the décor, TVs, fans, CCTV and POS systems are going under the hammer and could be a great help to starting up a business of any kind!

The Hog’s Breath Café Closure goes under the hammer on Tuesday 16th of April 2019 at 6:30pm.
