Imagine a workplace where the in-house chef has a CV glittering with hatted restaurants and you can drink on the job.

From Thursday the Atomic Beer Project, a brewery/restaurant, opens and is hoping to attract people working from home.

The Redfern start-up from West Australian craft brewery Gage Road offers laptop power points and USB ports to attract remote workers.

"We want to be a great local," says Atomic's director of hospitality, Stewart Wheeler.

To that end it won't serve takeaway coffee to avoid stepping on the toes of local cafes.

There's some serious firepower in the kitchen with head chef Jordan McLeod (Pilu, Ormeggio and Flying Fish, Longrain Tokyo).

At night, McLeod will focus on a Thai-inspired repertoire because of the cuisine's easy relationship with beer.

Open daily 7am-late.
