Boarding is now open as Ponsonby’s vibrant destination bar CLIPPER gets set to take you and your taste buds on a journey of the mind with the introduction of its Cocktail Passport.
The concept is simple. Head into CLIPPER bar in Ponsonby and let them take you on a journey to a foreign destination via the extensive range of delicious cocktails. Pick up a brand new passport menu and start collecting stamps at each flavour destination.
CLIPPER is inspired by the Golden Age of travel, a time when people would jet off onboard Pan Am clipper planes to exotic destinations in luxurious style to escape prohibition. With travel still off the cards for most people, the team behind one of Auckland’s best drinks menus wants to help you escape in other ways.
Enjoy first-class cocktails at CLIPPER off the Long Haul menu, perfect for the start of your night, the Short Haul menu which features drinks that are rich and spirit-forward, or the Clipper classics, inspired by great destinations and perfect for any hour.
If you think a Cocktail Passport sounds a bit lush, then you are not wrong! CLIPPER’s passport is inspired by the Golden Age of Travel when you used to dress up for international flights rather than the default trackies or (shock horrors) pyjamas. Back to the time where air hostesses had perfectly coiffed hair and rolled around the aircraft with trolleys of lobster.
