There’s a chill in the air and the coats have come out, meaning it’s time to come cosy up at these Britomart hot spots.


Tucked amongst the urban oasis that is The Pavilions, Ortolana offers you the chance to dine under the stars and cosy up with a blanket and soothing glass of red. Image by @taitaneferrisa.

Roukai Lane

This little laneway packs a lot of punch with four bars and eateries calling it home. Sheltered between the Atrium on Takutai and the Australis Nathan Buildings, shimmy in and stay a while as you warm up by the open fireplace.

The Parlour at Cafe Hanoi

Escape the hustle and bustle above as you revel in some old school cool style at Cafe Hanoi’s Parlour. This exotic underground dining room is a luxurious destination for your next function or event.


Climb down the steps of the Australis Nathan Buildings and open the Caretaker door to find a New York-style cocktail bar inspired by the golden era of bar tending. Stay a while and enjoy a cocktail or two.

Northern Steamship Co.

Located in the historic Northern Steamship Building this eatery and bar is perfect for chilling out and soaking up a sense of yesteryear. The upside down lampshades and library-style books on the shelves make for a comfortable place to spend the evening.

The Deck at Ostro

Perched high above Tyler Street sits The Deck at Ostro. With stunning city views and a huge open balcony this is the place to watch winter roll in.
