Imperial Lane

One of the city's first shared spaces

Carving out a thoroughfare at ground-level between Fort Lane and Queen St, the Lane takes its lead from the great cities of New York and Melbourne as one of the city's first shared spaces.

Lit by massive four-story lightwells and with a sweeping spiral staircase leading to the theatres on the first floor, the raw bricks, cobblestone floors and large oak and concrete tables create a distinct 19th century industrial warehouse feel. Offering everything from a morning coffee and cake to an after work drink with delicious nibbles straight from Everybodys kitchen.

Since opening in 2012 Imperial Lane has built it’s reputation on great coffee, an expansive patisserie selection and a comprehensive menu for both breakfast and lunch.

Imperial Lane also boasts a range of New Zealand craft beers and wines alongside live music on a Friday.
