The Icon is a restaurant and bar located in the heart of Wollongong, directly behind the IPAC theatre. Our menu has an American + Greek influence alongside the L.A. vibe the venue already carries. There are tapas plate options for those that love to share, plus we also offer main meals for those who don't. We offer lunch specials and Sunday brunches and something for everyone . The Icon is definitely a vibe and the food will blow you away like the venue itself !!

The Icon is open all day for coffee and cake or join us for a drink at the bar with happy hour from 4pm - 7pm offering $5 tap beers and wines as well as $10 cocktail specials.

We pride ourselves in supporting local suppliers and serving up great quality food to get you ready for a night of dancing (optional)

We have live entertainment over the weekend, follow us on Facebook and Insta to keep up with all the latest on whats happening here !

    Service was excellent. When my wife asked for a mocktail that didn't officially exist the barman went away and experimented and brought one back. It was great. He turned up ten minutes later with another experiment on the same theme - again delicious and really appreciated and no extra cost. Bar staff friendly and making you feel at home by being happy to have a chat. Food was quick as we had to get to the theatre - no problems. We will come back for sure as its's central to most town-centre outings.

    We arrived early, which dials down the ambience a bit but means swift service! The menu was slightly limited but we thoroughly enjoyed the food, ordered tapas-style to share. Would recommend.

    I have gone to The Icon on several occasions for drinks only, and sometimes a meal. The food is fantastic & the happy hours are great value for drinks. This particular visit it was unfortunately really noisy with loud salsa music playing & people dancing. On this visit, to be fair, we weren't in the mood for noise. On another visit in future, the salsa would be fun.
