OceanWeave Works Alongside Development in Paihia
Alongside Bar is a new development created beside 35 Degrees South, an Aquarium Restaurant and Bar in New Zealand’s Bay of Islands. The multimillion dollar project has seen the addition of a beautiful outdoor waterfront bar featuring luxurious outdoor lounge and dining furniture.
35 Degrees South comes complete with stunning views, situated right on the waterfront in Paihia. The restaurant emphasises their water location with a seafood focussed menu and its grand centrepiece - a 60,000 litre salt water aquarium filled with local fish from the Bay of Islands. To complement this unique indoor restaurant, Alongside was developed as an outdoor bar focussing on a classy but casual social theme. Enhanced with striking outdoor lounge furniture, an extensive beverage list and a bar menu primed for sharing, Alongside is designed to be a relaxing experience for all.
OceanWeave Furniture in Auckland were approached to supply a variety of rattan outdoor furniture to seat around 200 people. All of OceanWeave’s furniture is specifically made to endure warm climates and coastal conditions, making it the ideal solution for this development. Alongside was supplied with 222 pieces of rattan furniture including the Alps Modular Range, Shell Day Bed and Laiva Dining furniture. Shade7, a New Zealand shade specialist who owns the OceanWeave Furniture brand also supplied 8 outdoor umbrellas including their popular Riviera Cantilever and Bistro Market Umbrellas, offering sun protection while also acting as an eye catching feature.
Paihia is a popular holiday destination for both New Zealanders and foreigners, including those arriving by cruise ships to Paihia. The Northland region boasts moderate temperatures making it the ideal place for a year round outdoor bar location. Alongside has already been a great success and has been well received by the local community.
