Custom Lane is your new secret laneway right in the heart of Britomart (under the Mercure Hotel). Bringing everything we love about urban living—creativity, choice, vibrancy and a sense of belonging—this new destination laneway is set to become one of Auckland's hottest spots.
And, to celebrate, Custom Lane is giving away free doughnuts from your fave donuteers Doornuts! Yes, your wishes have been answered. Pinch yourself, because this is real.
Pop in on your way to work this Friday (that’s June 2, folks) where they’ll be giving away free doughnuts AND coffee. Swinging their doors open from 6.30am, the first 100 customers will get a free (yes, FREE!) Doornuts doughnut paired with a free (yes, also FREE!) coffee. Now that’s worth getting out of bed for!
With a grand opening like that, Custom Lane is sure to become your new go-to for morning coffee (organic, of course) and sweet, sugary pick-me-ups.
But wait! Custom Lane—as the name suggests—can be customised to your needs. It's a chameleon! When darkness falls, this little laneway will become the coolest cocktail haven in town.
Custom Lane’s custom cocktails are [insert fire emoji here]. Let’s talk about the Tamarillo Fizz—with cognac, tamarillo, ginger and lime it's sure to bring a smile to your dial! There’s also the Divinity with cognac, espresso, salted caramel, Nutella cream and nutmeg is pretty damn close to divine (as in God, not just good). Dream of them through your long, hard day and indulge when the sun goes down.
This may be the CBD, but they are straying away from the grey-on-grey look this city loves a little too much. A light-speckled ceiling, a hand-painted mural and a living wall makes it come alive. At this vibrant space, green is the new grey.
Promising to create experiences that will draw people back again and again, we're keeping an eye on Custom Lane!
