Vibe
From the team that brought Auckland Racket and Agents & Merchants, 1885 again makes great use of one of Britomart’s heritage buildings. Exposed bricks and beams, wooden floors, and a sophisticated ambience. 1885 is across two expansive levels, space that’s definitely needed on busy, busy Friday and Saturday nights.

Service
Easygoing and relaxed with a nice line in funky retro hats.

What's on Tap?
Erdinger, Amstel and Tiger fly the international flag with Monteith’s providing local support. A few Kiwi craft beers – Tuatara, Moa and Emersons – and a quite astounding “Cellar List” of very special wines. Classy cocktails too.

Feeling peckish?
Asian-inspired small plates including wontons and tamarind sauce, salt and pepper squid and Szechuan chicken lollipops.

The Bottom Line
1885 has a great energy and ambience, especially when the jazz, soul, blues and funk musicians kick off on Thursday to Saturday. DJs – including Manuel Bundy and Murray Cammick – in the 1885 basement from 11pm.

A Reason to Return
The early February launch of the adjacent and alfresco Heineken-themed Britomart Country Club. Roll on Rugby world Cup 2011.
