This stunning bar is like nothing else in the city. With its superb fitout and multiple distinct spaces, 1885 has all the ingredients for a serious night out.

Taking its name from the foundation year of historic Stanbeth House, 1885 is a sophisticated multi-level bar accessed off a private laneway behind Customs Street East.

Superbly designed, the interior is a clever blend of restored heritage features with rich contemporary styling. A high-ceilinged main room with massive wooden beams and raw concrete bar gives way to the 1930s-inspired G.H. Mumm Champagne Room; a sumptuous retreat adorned with low ceilings, marble surfaces, dark woods and ‘push to order’ champagne buttons.

Opposite, the original warehouse doors open out onto a long covered verandah: the perfect vantage point for watching the Britomart nightlife go by.

Basement bar and live music

Hidden away downstairs is a luxurious basement bar, leather-upholstered and staffed by dedicated hosts. Here you can choose from an extensive cellar wine list or cocktails created by some of New Zealand’s best bartenders.

As well as a great place to drink, 1885 Britomart is a buzzing live music venue. Evening performances from some of New Zealand’s leading jazz, soul, blues and funk musicians are followed by a line-up of late-night DJs.

Close to Vector Arena, 1885 is ideally located for a drink before or after a show. A small, elegant bar food menu is also available at all times.
