Liquid isn’t your typical Viaduct bar.

For one, it’s well off the well-trodden Viaduct bar-hoppers route. Secondly, perhaps as a consequence, it fails to attract the ‘it’ crowd that most Viaduct bar managers would have you believe are their bars’ only clients!

Although it’s set back from the waterfront, Liquid Café and Bar occupies a good corner spot with plenty of outdoor seating. The interior is modern and is far from being ostentatious.

Again, Liquid Cafe and Bar offers a host of seating options spread evenly between two good-sized, distinguishable areas. Liquid does attract a fair few diners early in the evening, but, approaching 9ish, dining guests tapered off dramatically.

The music is laid back lounge and that suits the general look and feel of the place. From what I could tell, Liquid seems to attract a few regulars, possibly Viaduct apartment owners not looking to doll themselves up and get caught up in the circus that the Viaduct often turns into.

The bar offers a well-balanced and well-priced wine list with a fair share of both New Zealand and Australian wines. The Japanese Nashi wine (made locally) is tasty and comes well recommended—worth a taste at $6.00 a glass.

Liquid Café and Bar has a decidedly neighbourhood feel about it. Firmly unpretentious, unassuming and very friendly.

Unfortunately, it just doesn’t have the vibe or attitude that, whether you like it or not, ensures the other Viaduct venues receive a solid patronage.
