I have a long and enjoyable culinary heritage with The Sugar Club restaurants – there have been four of them.  In 2016 we celebrated 30 years since the first one opened in Wellington on Vivian Street.  

In those days, it was a revelation on the local dining scene as I 'mixed and matched' Asian and European flavours and ingredients, a fusion of cuisines that hadn't been done before.  The next two opened in London - the first on Notting Hill's All Saints Road in 1995, followed in 1998 by one on Warwick Street in West Soho.  

The fourth and current incarnation is located on Level 53 of the fabulous Sky Tower, with its breath-taking views across the dynamic city of Auckland.  To the East you can see the Hauraki Gulf (which joins the Pacific Ocean) with Waiheke and Rangitoto Islands close by.  To the West you can see the Tasman Sea.  There aren’t many restaurants that I know of where you can see two oceans! 

Our menu is based around small seasonal plates packed full of flavour.  We source the finest produce from around New Zealand and mix it up a little with flavours from around the world.  We call it 'Fusion Cuisine' - our guests call it delicious.

Our decor evokes 1930s Art Deco Italy and is inspired by the sensual film 'I Am Love'.  Brass fittings, stone table tops and gorgeous tableware all add to the atmosphere.  

I'm sure you'll feel cosseted and invigorated after a meal of discovery, complemented by our deliciously creative cocktails and an evolving and eclectic wine list.
