Cocktail Den

Travel back to the roaring 20s this Friday night only!

This Friday, May 14, St Johns Bar and Eatery will play host to a 1920’s Speakeasy cocktail den for one night only.

Expect well-crafted cocktails, live music, delicious canapes surrounded by candlelight and much more. Upon arrival, you will be greeted with a glass of bubbly and the swinging sounds of jazz and blues.

The event is part of Eat Drink Play, a city-wide festival running from May 6 to May 16. The event brings together the best local food, drink and entertainment Wellington has to offer.

The exclusive Speakeasy night gives customers a chance to don their favourite flapper outfit, channel their inner Gatsby and immerse themselves in the times of the roaring twenties.

But that is not all. Visitors can expect an array of tasty bar bites like cheeseburger sliders, halloumi skewers, Vietnamese paper rolls, churros and plenty more to pair with your cocktails.
