Common Room

Voted Hawke’s Bay’s favourite local four years in a row.

Welcome to the sweetest little bar in Hastings, great wine, craft beer and a simple menu done well. Regular live music and staff that like to have a laugh. We are big believers in the fine art of conversation, so what’s on your mind?

We opened in 2014 and since then we’ve hosted about 150 live gigs a year, untold quizzes, birthdays, charity events, private functions, pop-up restaurants, fringe events and crazy avant garde happenings.

With the A-Team of hospo staff, a beautiful and relaxed setting and an eclectic (on some nights this is replaced by electric!) vibe we are proudly your home away from home.
