The Lula Inn

A Slice of Pacific Charm at the Viaduct

Drawing inspiration from New Zealand’s South Pacific provenance, The Lula Inn is an urban escape to explore lively drinking, dining and entertainment experiences, all set within a garden oasis.

Perched in the heart of Princes Wharf (previously home to The Crew Club), Lula’s boasts a pacific-inspired interior bringing a relaxed, colonial charm to the historic Launchman’s Building.

Capturing the charm of the South Pacific with its unique landscape, flavours and energy, The Lula Inn boasts a playful kiwi menu incorporating premium New Zealand produce, fresh seafood and nostalgic family favourites with a kiwi twist.

There is so much to try from the menu including Takapoto Beef Steak, fresh seafood dishes like Leigh Fish Kokoda, Lamb Shoulder and the vibrant, adventurous Southern Fried Snapper Roll, wrapped with Kiwi personality.

The Lula Inn is also set to hero gins from around the world with a refreshing cocktail menu that tells the unique tale of the South Pacific - full of flavoursome tropical concoctions and classic favourites with a twist. The cocktails will leave even the most dedicated aficionados feeling adventurous with an array of innovative combinations and unique ingredients such as Amaretto, Earl Grey tea, pink peppercorn, vanilla and fresh fruits. Be sure to try The Lula Inn’s house-made cocktails, designed using an intriguing syrup made from the preservation of natural fruits.

As well as delicious food and drinks, The Lula Inn promises to be an iconic entertainment hub in the city. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, Live at Lula’s kicks into gear and turns the tempo up with some of the country’s most talented soul and funk artists bringing a unique and vibrant energy to Auckland.

The Lula Inn suits every occasion, from a lazy lunch in the sunshine to an after-work drink or a night out with friends.
