One long table rolling through a cool unique space. Seats filled with friends, colleagues or clients. Several courses of fantastic food matched to premium wines presented by Negociants New Zealand. Champagne Bollinger flowing, the crisp taste of Asahi beer, live music with DJ back up and fashion presented by leading New Zealand men's designer Barkers complimented by NZ female fashion selections. An afternoon of fun and frivolity. This is the Long Lunch Series. Coming to a locale near you soon.
The original Long Lunch was held in the CBD in 2011 where 400 people filled High Street eating food from such noted restaurants as O'Connell St Bistro, Vivace and Kitchen with Peter Urlich providing the backing tunes. Next up was opening Ponsonby Central with 200 lunchers and in 2014 we held two sold out long lunch events at Tom Tom Bar & Restaurant in Drake St, Victoria Park — first up was the Volvo Winter Long Lunch followed by the hugely successful Volvo Melbourne Cup Long Lunch.
In 2015 we plan to hold 10-12 long lunches in Auckland and around New Zealand. If you are interested in holding a long lunch in your neighbourhood then get in touch, we would love to talk to you.
