About
There is something for everyone at The Emporium- Our most recent attractions are Escape room games. Themed rooms with clues and puzzles to work through to complete a challenge, you've only got 60mins- can you beat the clock?? (Bookings essential via our website) The 18 hole Mini Golf course at The Emporium is set in a lovely sheltered location away from the road. Recently renovated, this course is a lot of fun for all ages, surrounded by native plants and mountain views. Look out for the resident cat Poppy, she may even help you knock that ball in the hole! The Emporium also has a 4 Tap rigger station selling the latest craft beers produced by Emporium Brewing. The long term plan is to have a full brewery installed here in our warehouse but until that time we will continue to contract brew the bulk of our beers in Christchurch with the exception of a few limited release 50 litre batches brewed on site here in Kaikoura. Pop in for a chat anytime!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Went for a evening meal with friends, beer was OK, music was good, where they let themselves down was there pizzas, everyone's was doughy and undercooked, halfway through the service they realised this and shut down, refunded those who didn't get there's and didn't worry about those who had to endure the undercooked pizzas, won't be going back or recommending

Worth a visit if you're looking for things to do on a sunny afternoon in Kaikoura. Perfect for having a few locally brewed beers and playing a round of mini golf. The mini golf isn't the most exciting but is based on the town of Kaikoura which is a nice touch.

We visited as a family to do one of the escape rooms which we'd heard about and had a great time. Can't wait to come back and do the next one.

We were after a family activity that we could do with our young children (4 & 1) and landed upon this mini-golf. While it was a good set up inside we did find that the course outself appears a little run down with some of the mini-golf 'sculptures' broken or the 'greens' being on a hill/uneven so the golf balls would roll down the hill. We also struggled getting our very small stroller our 1yo was in around the course (it has managed many other courses previously) so can't see larger prams/wheelchairs making it around. Besides these points, we did have fun playing and would probably return again if we needed something to do.

We had great fun in the escape room (we did Hermits Hut), and finished off with some beers afterwards. The tasting tray was great and the new tasting room is a great addition! Would definitely recommend a visit!

Two flights of beer (hand picked by the staff after consideration of my preferences) and a crack at one of the board games in the extensive collection contributed to an extremely enjoyable two hours.

Walkable distance from the town, consider taking a car if people have balance issues as the 50m driveway down to the building is loose rock.

Professionally, welcoming, clean.

One of the best escape room I have done to date. We did this with a preteen who was more than capable to contribute to the escape. we precooked this and did the hardest one. we finished with a nice cold craft beer and apple juice for the kids. Mini golf is in hand for those that dot want to escape.

Love mini golf, and this was such a cute wee course. Some great gimmicks and posed enough of a challenge that it was a fun game!

Really fun mini golf and escape room. Good example of simple things done well. Highly recommend, especially great on one of those rare rainy days in Kaikoura.
