Hosts Billy Farnell and Russell Green are pleased to announce that their cocktail and piano bar is to reopen in February at 335 Karangahape Road, the site of the old Legends Bar. Wayne Clark says he looked at many possible venues but this one suited “really well”. It offers more space and a good dance floor, along with a private room at the back (named the Opium Den) plus a smoking area out front – once alterations are complete.
The theme remains “Chinese Oriental” but Wayne says he is adding décor from the movie set of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon which adds an extra WOW factor. Billy’s piano will again be pride of place and both he and Russell look forward to welcoming guests to their latest and greatest venture. Opening dates will be posted later.
