Coley & Punch

Nourish Group’s newly opened cocktail and whisky bar Coley & Punch has a focus on beverages from around the world.
The new addition to Auckland’s Princes Wharf gets its name from the well known female bartender, Ada ‘Coley’ Coleman. Head bartender at the American Bar in the Savoy Hotel, London from 1903-1926, Coley was a familiar face to thousands of guests around the world including many top actors, celebrities, royals and millionaires of the day.
On the cocktail list is Coley’s most famous cocktail creation The Hanky Panky, created for a celebrated actor of the time, Sir Charles Hawtrey. Other creations include the Coley & Punch margarita with house infused pineapple tequila and pink peppercorns, espresso martini with citrus, vanilla and homemade gingerbread syrup, and the Charlie Chaplin, staying true to the 1920s original with its aroma of apricots, stone fruits and an edge of citrus.
With the bar full of rare, aged and hard to find spirits, Coley & Punch is also home to a 250-strong whisky selection, including a Glen Grant 1950, a Glenglassaugh 1967, and Ardbeg 1974 Connoisseurs Choice. There are also 11 whiskies from closed distilleries. Independent bottlers also feature strongly with offerings from Adelphi, Old Malt cask, Signatory and Gordon & MacPhail.
Coley & Punch has views overlooking the Waitemata Harbour and an interior featuring dark woods, leather and brick.
