The members-only bar serves sophistication without pretension.
January 12, 2015
There was an excitement in the air when news of the vision for the Seafarers Members Club was whispered around town. Finally a private space downtown where commerce and culture could collide, where networks can be forged all within the realms of a world class hospitality experience.
The brainchild of creative geniuses Shine Group and leading chef Josh Emmett (of Ebisu / Ostro fame) - Seafarers was founded on the premise of stimulating, inspiring and connecting a certain breed of Auckland's movers and shakers.
Drip feeding the foundation memberships was a surefire way to build momentum and all though reasonably quiet during the days, the deck was getting busier and busier in the lead up to silly season. The Club lacks a certain pretentiousness present in other Auckland establishments, while still evoking a level of sophistication on par with international members clubs such as Shoreditch House and Soho House of London and New York.
Set over 3 levels, the Club caters for all energy levels. A private screening room, long lunching lounge and cafe, inside while The top floor deck is the perfect spot for visitors and potential clients as it showcases the Auckland waterfront in all it's sparkly splendour.
As summer hits full swing it is not hard to see that Seafarers will become a major hub for dreamers, doers and thinkers alike.
