STAFFORD ROAD WINE BAR
The idea for Stafford Road Wine bar was born from travels to Europe and the United States in the 1990s where it was quite common to have both specialist wine retailer and wine bar operating under the same roof.
It was at the turn of the century Simon and Jaquie Mackenzie began work at Point Wines and first discussed the concept with their previous employer, owner Aidan Hardy. Although the idea was slow to form, the seed was firmly planted. It wasn’t until Simon purchased Point Wines in 2007 that he was in a position to realise his dream. Adding the future bar to the existing retail business proved a little challenging to get off the ground but permission from the North Shore City Council for the project was finally given. Plans were quickly drawn up and building commenced in September 2009.
Pacific Environments Architects were brought on board to develop the original Resource Consent documentation to a point were we were able to set up a viable restaurant in a limited footprint. This was followed through during construction to assure that all went smoothly.
