Left: Founder of Bayside Rum Co. & Bar Manager at Ahi, Egor Petrov

Bar Magda is kicking off their third birthday celebrations with an epic cocktail evening with Egor Petrov of Bayside Rum Co.

One of our favourite eateries in the city, Bar Magda, is known for its exceptional new-wave Filipino fare (Carlo Buenaventura and his clever kitchen team never miss), but a perhaps lesser-known fact about the K-Road hotspot is that they know how to put on a damn good party.

In celebration of three great years in business, during which time they’ve firmly established themselves as one of Auckland’s most-loved venues, Bar Magda is hosting a month-long celebration filled with exceptional events not to be missed. To kick things off, Buenaventura has invited one of the city’s top mixologists, Ahi’s bar manager and founder of Bayside Rum Co., Egor Petrov, to join him on the 14th of June to host an evening of convivial cocktails, fantastic fare, and a rousing DJ set inspiring revellers to make a night of it.

On the food front, as always Buenaventura will be putting his best foot forward, serving up two courses comprised of four sharing plates that will be sure to surprise, delight, and satisfy — and pair perfectly with the inventive cocktails on offer.

Behind the bar, Petrov, who is known for his unique, creative and considered drinks, will join bar manager Matt Venables, crafting an edit of tropical-themed libations for the occasion. Each bespoke drink will marry the vibrant flavours of the Filipino cuisine Bar Magda harnesses so beautifully, with Bayside Rum Co.’s vibrant, locally-made rums, to create something truly novel and inspired.

Post-meal, come 9.30pm, a DJ will take to the decks and Bar Magda will throw open its doors, inviting those out and about in the city to come and experience Petrov’s creations, alongside four additional drink specials available for the evening — priced from a modest $12.

There’s a $60 per person minimum spend on the evening, and you can secure your spot here.
