This new champagne parlour is perfectly suited to the season of effervescence

Lord knows we love any opportunity to don our glad rags and revel in a bottle or two of France’s finest export. Luckily for Auckland, Tommy’s Champagne Parlour, an opulent hideaway located on Level 6 of the Seafarers Building, is soon to be open as a dedicated home for the effervescent beverage.

The den of indulgence will house a range of our favourite marques including vintage Moët & Chandon, Dom Pérignon, Ruinart, Krug, and the hero, Veuve Clicquot. Offering a new kind of bottle service, patrons can lease their own drawer in the bar’s ‘Liquor Cabinet’ in which to put aside reserved bottles of their favourite drops for three months at a time. This, along with the fact that after 10 pm Tommy’s will be accessible only via an exclusive guest list and specific reservations, creates an air of understated exclusivity that sets this speakeasy apart from the rest.

With private booths, mirrored walls and a themed VIP room, Tommy’s falls between the type of Champagne bar that evokes glamorous imagery of sophisticates swilling from coupes à la The Great Gatsby, and a more casual iteration that encourages revellers seeking something different to come and carouse while savouring a festive drop or indulgent cocktail. 

Tommy’s Champagne Parlour will officially open on 14th December. Bookings are essential. To book ahead, click here. For more information about Tommy’s Champagne Parlour contact
