About this space

The World's first op-shop bar is raising money for Polished man to help and violence against kids worldwide. Last year they raised over t1.5 million dollars!

Warm old-world lighting juxtaposed with sexy blue LED hues to follow you through an eclectic and intentionally hodgepodge array of your grandma's best dressers and wardrobes - sporadically fixed to the walls, ceiling and bar surfaces.

Intimate booth seating made from repurposed cupboards line the walls as you enter, and the venue then opens up into a large area suited to everything from corporate canapes to rave-cave throwdowns.

We'd love your help with donations of pre-loved clothes! Bag em up and come visit us in the CBD or Footscray so we can say thanks with a smile and a beer on us! Or send us a message to see if we can pick them up!

About Doss Closet

Be the first to pop tags and experience The World's First Op Shop Bar - Doss Closet.

Inside Doss Closet, the walls are lined with second-hand clothes (donated kindly by people from all over Melbourne), blue wash lighting (as a nod to the Polished Man cause), food by Touché Hombre washed down with Doss Blockos and Sample Brew.

All proceeds from clothing sold supports Polished Man and their campaign to end violence against children.
