The Verdict

RIP The Jefferson, one of Auckland's best hidden gems, here's what they had to say: 
"We regret to announce that after 7 amazing years it wasn’t covid in the end that got us … a flood which caused an electrical fault did. We now start looking for a new home so keep following us here and we hope to bring you news next year. Thank you to the thousands of you who shared the magic of The Jefferson and made it a special place."

We'll be waiting with bated breath folks!



Whisky drinker or not, Auckland bar The Jefferson is worth a visit. Hidden in the basement of Fort Lane’s Imperial Building in the CBD, The Jefferson has fast become the city’s premium whisky and bourbon bar with an impressive 500 varieties on offer. Their menu changes with the season, but is sure to always feature their signature sticky ribs—a dram’s perfect companion.
