Pay homage to one of the original Monteith's bars in Auckland at Basalt, the gem of Howick Village. Plant yourself on a sun-drenched corner at the rooftop bar, overlooking the water with your favourite people, beers, and bites. With a recipe for joy in hand, Basalt is a no-brainer that’s just walking distance away.

Say g'day to Rob, chief joybringer at Basalt.
