About Emporium Eatery, Bar & Lounge
While Art Deco Masonic Hotel – in its various forms – and the essence of this special restaurant and meeting place has been around since 1861, Emporium Eatery & Bar opened in October 2012 , The Lounge in October 2017 and the most recent edition the Cocktail Lounge in 2019.
The Eatery & Bar was designed by internationally renowned restaurant designer Tom Skyring. Our place is elegant and opulent – all leather and wood, with a stunning marble bar and just the right amount of Art Deco. We’re pleased with the blend of contemporary style with the unique heritage of this special city and historic building. With a diverse, contemporary menu to suit the time of day, and extensive beverage list it’s just the spot to gather friends, family or colleagues to enjoy the finest in Hawke’s Bay hospitality.
Long, leisurely breakfasts, lunches and dinners, or delicious all-day grazing with a glass of fine wine or cocktail, or beer from our impressive collection – this is how many a fine Hawke’s Bay day or evening is spent. The Eatery & Bar is open seven days a week.
Emporium The Lounge, is an elegant space to enjoy dining in more intimate surroundings. The Cocktail Lounge provides a luxurious, comfortable space to relax and enjoy a fine wine, cocktail or snack.
