Step into contemporary French bistro Origine and it will feel like stepping into another world. From its sweeping views of Auckland Harbour to its soaring-height ceilings to its refined fit-out, this restaurant has long been a go-to of ours for celebratory occasions, thanks to the ways it embodies French elegance via its design and its delicious menu. Now, the Commercial Bay restaurant is taking things up a notch by officially opening its very own private dining space The Mezzanine — perfect for special dinners, drinks with friends or even for corporate functions.
Located (as the name suggests) on Origine’s mezzanine floor, above the main dining room, The Mezzanine marries opulent décor with breathtaking views. Able to accommodate up to 40 seated guests or 55 standing, the new space offers an intimate yet open setting that can be tailored to a variety of occasions. It even boasts its own, dedicated bar and bartender promising to cater to any kind of event, whether that is impressing clients with a private lunch, networking with colleagues at a cocktail party, or celebrating a special occasion with loved ones.
In addition, the clever culinary minds behind Origine have created a variety of set-menu food options, alongside wine and beverage menus that can be tailored to whatever you need. Here, there’s nothing quite like sipping on a glass of Champagne as you take in the panoramic views of Auckland Harbour and watch the bustling restaurant below.
And while daytime functions are welcome, by night, The Mezzanine is transformed into a glittering wonderland, illuminated by sparkling chandeliers that set the scene for a seriously glamorous affair.
From its chic and contemporary design to its intimate size and curated offering, The Mezzanine boasts a uniquely sophisticated ambience that is both inviting and exclusive, guaranteed to make any experience here unforgettable.
