The Lodge Bar and Dining
If James Street is known for two things, its high-end fashion brands, and its iconic dining scene, so it's no surprise New Zealand label Rodd & Gunn is combining both for its new flagship store, The Lodge Bar and Dining.
From Queenstown to Queensland, The Lodge Bar and Dining is an Australian first which melds fashion, food, and wine in the perfect blend of luxury and style.
Located in a heritage Queenslander on James Street, the store could be considered an interior design lovers' oasis which showcases American oak wood flooring, wool rugs, a bespoke wine bar, and even a flagstone feature wall. With a maximum capacity of 150 guests, the venue's multiple spaces such as the corner bar with banquette seating, vibrant dining room, or the level one bar (which includes panoramic views of James St) are available to be booked for a range of events.
Fashion and interiors aside, the food menu, created by globally renowned chef Matt Lambert and brought to life by head chef James Evangelions offers a modern take on timeless classics and sources only the finest locally produced ingredients. In another perfect pairing for Rodd & Gunn, New Zealand's only Master Sommelier, Cameron Douglas has crafted the ideal wine list to match the array of delectable dishes on the menu.
