Schedule of Events
Our events & what makes us different
Cupid bar is a small, intimate venue situated in the foyer of the old Ambassador Theatre. We are an independent, owner-operated and women-led business.
Our past events include live music by Labretta Suede and the Motel 6, our annual Amy Winehouse Tribute Night, whisky tastings, beer and food matching and a monthly Stand-Up Comedy show featuring original NZ comedians.
We stock 100% independently owned local craft beer, as well as a range of bottled beer, wine and spirits.
We believe you should drink responsibly but live dangerously.
