Portlander Bar

Thirsty? Well then, let us be of assistance… Our liquid list will banish those camel nightmares for good. If it’s a kick start to your night that you’re after, choose from our hip selection of cocktails designed by our in-house mixologist.

The Wine List

The Portlander wine list is a labour of one man’s love for wine. There are over 24 styles of wine from 9 countries with bottles to suit any budget, from a perfectly quaffable $52.00 to our cellared bottles worth over $1,000.

With 41 of our 117 wines available by the glass, our customers are spoilt for choice when it comes to selection.

We feature local wines from Martinborough and Wairarapa like Gladstone Vineyards and Ata Rangi. Regionally, we feature wines from Marlborough, Hawkes Bay and Nelson.

Nationally it’s a continued showcase of our best. From as far north as Waiheke Island, Auckland, and Matakana in Man O’ War, Gillman, Babich, and Kumeu, to as far south as Canterbury, Waipara, and of course, Central Otago, in Tresillian, Georges Road, Hawkshead, Nevis Bluff, Ostler and Tiki to name a few.

The Whisky Bar

We opened our Whisky Bar in March 2014. Starting with a humble list of 82 options, our menu has now grown to over 100 whiskies. There’s whisky from all over Scotland, Japan, and Canada, and whisky from the Americas and Ireland. Australasian whiskies are being sourced out as we speak!

We’ve been going through some rigorous whisky tasting here at Portlander, and we love to share what we have learned with fellow whisky lovers.

Although we’ll never list our full selection online, you can check out some of our selections here, and then come in a join us for a session of dram and admire the full collection.
