Bin Bin Deluxe, Takapuna - Bar Review

The new Sin Bin keeps part of the name, but can it ditch the reputation?

Food

As we were at Bin Bin Deluxe for a friend’s birthday party, we tried out various group plates of chips, nibbles and pizzas. These were actually pretty good for what they were. You can pick up $10 pizza specials here on regular occasions.

Drinks

The standard range you’d expect from a bar of this kind. They were having supply issues the night we were there – Lindauer ran out reasonably early on (a surprise omission, given the presence of a big birthday group on a Saturday night) with the only replacement being a bit of a price hike.

Vibe

Very quiet for a Saturday night - our group were pretty much the only people there all night. Bin Bin Deluxe also has a strange look, made up of giant artworks by local artists that look great on their own, but together look quite jarring. The giant soup cans are interesting, but feel like they should be in a completely different bar.

Service

Friendly and helpful though flustered when certain drinks ran out (see above).

Highlights

The large photo on the wall next to the men’s toilets. It doesn’t really fit with anything else in the bar, but certainly appreciated by the males in our group.

The Bottom Line

From what it sounds, this is a step up from what used to be in the location. However, if the night we went was anything to go by, Binbin Deluxe needs something more than just artwork to create some atmosphere.
