There’s no better way to experience the full scope of the unparalleled selection of eateries at Commercial Bay than in the Harbour Eats food hall. With more than 650 seats available, innovative shared space Harbour Eats is inspired by international food precincts in New York, London and Barcelona.
Encompassing a wide range of local and international cafes, bars and restaurants, it’s sure to satisfy not only the daytime, downtown work crowd and weekend shoppers but also those purely looking to wine and dine. With the hardest part being settling on where to eat, suffice to say every Commercial Bay trip could be supplemented with a different meal and setting.
Embrace the international atmosphere underneath the eat-in dining area’s soaring ceilings.
At Public, a bar concept by Bedford & Soda’s Matt Nicholls, huge windows take in the downtown ferry building and there’s a bookable area for larger groups. Serving coffee and fresh smoothies during the day and expertly-crafted cocktails after dark, visitors can also expect various pop-ups in the same area. Currently, bluff oysters are on offer, best appreciated when washed down with a glass of champagne.
