... if you're here, you should be sitting outside on the courtyard, enjoying life, not cooped up inside. This is where the Customs House Bar excels. Excellent Food and drink served in a convivial atmosphere with table service and open air all around you. Prices are what you'd expect for an upmarket venue - no $2.50 schooners of VB here. The Customs House building itself is going through continuous, often contentious remodelling and redesign, with exhibitions and events continually cycling through. Customs House Bar, however, is tucked out of the way of all this on the right hand side of the building, and retains its dignity in the face of constant change. Incidentally we once managed to 'crash' the Absolut Vodka art exhibition opening night party here through the simple expedient of being at a seminar held by a local software firm upstairs. Now that was a night worth attending, we can tell you. legless by 8.30pm is a good one, even for us, and for free, too!

I've had the Calamari recommended to me, washes down with Hahn Premium, which at $5 a pop is about average for a bar of this level, I guess!
