Our Story

About us

Established in 2011, the Conservatory was the first "living bar" to be built in the world - the bar is a living wall of plants. Situated in Auckland city centre and directly on the waterfront, we are incredibly proud to be an individually owned and operated, free trade bar and restaurant, with the same owners from day one.

Our selection


All of our food is made fresh daily on site, with the highest quality produce, all free range and predominantly locally sourced. Being on a working wharf we can truly say that our seafood is fresh off the boat.

Our Choice


Our ever evolving drinks list is testament to what a free trade venue can offer. Unlike the vast majority of venues in New Zealand, who all have to stock the same products because of their agreements with big breweries, our drinks list is 100% based on quality and is chosen by our passionate team.
