The Parasol & Swing Company is a cocktail bar with a stellar drinks menu and food offering in the heart of the Viaduct.

Over two levels, with a rooftop bar overlooking Viaduct basin, it features a host of Auckland's best hospitality experts coming together to create something special - so special it's award-winning. In 2018, Parasol & Swing won the Best New Venue in Auckland award at the Lewisham Awards.  

The concept behind the bar is a tribute to the industry itself with a history and story that goes back to the mid 19th century, told through a beautiful cocktail menu, designed by the Wonder Group and uniquely illustrated by a renowned Montreal based tattoo artist Angus Byers.

To have a location like this, that is combining international competition calibre craft cocktails, boutique wine producers, grower champagnes, and craft beers all in front of the best view of the Viaduct any bar has to offer will be a new and unique experience.

Try the new seasonal cocktail menu available from now until mid January 2020 - Don't miss out on the limited run of the Flanders Crimson Ale, the perfect blend of earl grey gin, raspberry jam grenadine, blanco vermouth and Flanders Red Ale. This delicious beer cocktail is a collaboration with the popular Hallertau brewery!
