Parnell's jazziest new bar has just opened

What better way to get cosy on a cold winter's night than by settling in with a drink in hand to listen to the smooth sounds of jazz. Parnell has a new member on the block with Crown Range Lounge having just opened its doors, and this establishment is a must-visit on your weekend’s to-do list.

This Central Otago-inspired bar is a small and intimate venue, perfect for private functions, boutique wedding receptions and formal seated dinner parties. As well as being a bookable venue, this space turns into a vibrant jazz bar every Friday night with a killer lineup of musicians ready to play over the next few weekends. Starting with the legendary Peter Ulrich playing a wicked set of sweet, sweet tunes - from Sinatra to The Stones this Friday 24th June and Nathan Haines will be taking the decks next Friday 1st July to play an exclusive vinyl DJ set that is not to be missed.

This exclusive hideaway bar is also hosting Artisan Nights, with their first event kicking off on Thursday 30th June in collaboration with Matakana Markets. Four local producers will be displaying their wares, giving you the chance to learn about their craft and support local artisans. The first event will introduce Batch 10 Whiskey, Whangaropo Buffalo Cheese, Wild Delicious Drinks and Manaki Whitebait, where you will be able to indulge both in-house and take away.

So what are you waiting for? Make this new opening top of your list this weekend.
