Caretaker, Auckland

Roukai Lane, Auckland

by James Wilkinson

There are classic cocktails aplenty at Caretaker, in the basement of a building on Roukai Lane, where you’ll want to score a stool at the bar and have one of the bowtie clad bartenders stir you up an Old Fashioned with freshly chiselled ice.

Find a decent selection of Japanese whiskies, best had in a Sour.

Roukai Lane, 40 Customs St East, Auckland.
