Slice Of Swedish Summer Set For Auckland’s Waterfront

Slice Of Swedish Summer Set For Auckland’s Waterfront

Rekorderlig is set to bring a taste of the Scandinavian summer to Auckland’s social scene this March with a pop-up retreat from the summer heat - the Rekorderlig Swedish Summerhouse.


Nestled on rolling green lawn on Wynyard Quarter’s Daldy Street, the Summerhouse provides guests with the unique opportunity to enjoy a taste of Swedish culture, in a space designed to emulate the traditional Swedish summer sanctuary of their red and white clad Stugas, or holiday homes.


“The Swedish Summerhouse is inspired by the same beautifully Swedish ethos as Winter Lights. This time however, we are celebrating a totally different season with the premium aesthetic and leisurely ambience that encapsulates a Swedish summer holiday,” says Rekorderlig Brand Manager Emma Rock.


“Every aspect from the furniture, the art on the house walls, the food, drinks, games and Summer solstice floral head wreaths, have all been cleverly crafted to deliver an experience that imitates the best of Swedish culture,” she says.


Key to a fully immersive experience is the provision of Swedish fare and the Summerhouse will not disappoint. A bespoke Swedish inspired menu has been designed that highlights some of Sweden’s most popular summer dishes including, Stromming or Pickled Herring, Gravad Lax or cured salmon, Gruyere Fondue and Korv Med Brod, gourmet style sausages in rye buns. Sweden’s most popular exported beverage, Rekorderlig, will also be served in a variety of pouring styles, including specially designed cocktails and jugs for sharing. New variants Raspberry-Lime and Elderflower-Lime will also be available for tasting.


The Summerhouse will provide a feast for all senses as guests relax into the summery sounds of popular DJ acts, each with their own Swedish influence. The hauntingly romantic works of Swedish photographer Agnes Thor will be exhibited amongst classically white-washed décor, punctuated by splashes of fruit-inspired colour.


The Rekorderlig Summerhouse will be gracing our shores for just two weeks; open Thursday through Sunday 3.00pm – 10.00pm from March 6th. The days of a Swedish summer may be long but the season is short.


The Summerhouse builds on the success of last year’s Rekorderlig Winter Lights and promises to deliver an even more immersive seasonal experience
