The Lawrenson Group is Hamilton’s leading bar and restaurant organisation currently comprising twelve establishments ranging from dining and after work drinking venues to the city’s biggest and most popular nightclubs. The founding member of the group was award winning restaurant and bar Furnace which was opened in June 2007, followed by Bar101 and Easy Tiger Cocktail Bar in 2008 and The Helm Bar and Kitchen and Shenanigans Irish Pub in 2009. The addition of Victoria Street Bistro, The Outback Inn, The Bank Bar and Brasserie and Keystone Monteith’s Bar in 2010, along with The Abbey Belgian Beer Café, The Hood and Coyotes in 2011 saw the group grow to its current size.

The Lawrenson Group features a number of owner operators who share in a commitment to quality and consistency that has led to our rapid and successful expansion. We recognise that our two most important assets are the skills of our staff and the loyalty of our customers. Our goal, therefore, is to continue providing further opportunities for talented hospitality operators and enhancing customer experiences by improving and developing Hamilton’s hospitality industry into the best that New Zealand has to offer.
