Cargo Bar: a bar made from shipping containers

When the 2011 earthquake hit Christchurch, Henare Akuhata-Brown (more affectionately known as “H”) was one of the many to lose everything he owned, including his house and two bars. H saw this as a perfect opportunity to find a gap in the market and experiment with something completely new – so, a few months later, Cargo Bar was born.

From the inside, you’d never even guess that the entire place is made out of old shipping containers. The rustic wooden interior provides a friendly and relaxed environment that’s perfect for winding down after work, and attracts a fairly decent crowd throughout the week.

The jam jar cocktails are an absolute must-have, and you can either pick from a list of classic cocktails, or if you’re in the mood to try something new, try one of their own signature cocktails. Once you’ve had a few of those, you can muster up some cocktail-fuelled bravado and challenge your friends to a cheeky putt on the putting green, located just next to the bar. Much more challenging than a game of pub pool!
