Archived: Orleans & Oysters FEASTival

A weekend of delicious eats and shaking beats at La Zeppa

Auckland's much-loved rooftop bar La Zeppa is rolling out a weekend of celebrations and throwing a Southern Style FEASTival.

Orleans & Oysters is set to be a weekend of fried chicken in waffle cones, freshly shucked oysters, hip-shakin’-boot-tappin’ beats and shuffleboard & corn hole – the best bar games straight from the southern states.

An epic line-up of home-grown musicians have been handpicked for the festivities. Promising to get your feet movin’ and body groovin’ the vibrant, soulful & jazzy 11 piece noise making and masters of afro-funk – Ijebu Pleasure Club. 

Come hungry! The FEASTival will be stacked full of vendors with satiating southern menus to get your tummy rumbling.

Fried chicken & waffle cones dripping in Canadian maple syrup. Southern style burgers and sticky-finger pork ribs. Poppa’s Pretzels with the sweet, savoury and tantalisingly tasty pretzel and hot dog buzz. Double-dipped fried pickles and baskets of kumara fries. Freshly shucked Clevedon oysters featuring bloody mary shooters.

There will be a free Instabooth to get snap happy, and the lads behind Boar & Blade will be throwing you in the barber’s chair. Tarot card readings will be on offer as well..

To serenade the afternoon crowds with his jazzy beats is DJ and Saxophone superstar Matt Bizzle, followed by coveted George FM DJ’s - Hamish Crocker and Jay Bulletproof, all ready to crank up the volume for the late-night festival.

$10 entry fee on the door will get you a deliciously cold and refreshing Panhead beer or Soho wine on arrival.
