We unknowingly stumbled upon a hidden Gem in Whangarei. A fantastic place for a cleansing NZ ale, wine or two. Character explodes out of this place. A live music venue in the outdoor stage area where you can bask in the open warm air of the winter less north. Inside we relaxed by the bar, enjoy the unique atmosphere whilst Dan the owner provided light entertainment for us. Dan is an amazing DJ and conversationalist and we ended up having a thoroughly enjoying night. A place to be experienced. The Old Stone Butter Factory is the place.
