Open for business!

Our newly relocated 1815 Bar is now open for business.

The team have been working tirelessly over the New Year break to ensure the bar has a great selection menu and some great upcoming events.


Read all about our new coffee beans, supplied by Union Hand-Roasted Coffee (Ha!).

"Hello, we’re Union. We’ve been sourcing, roasting, living and loving good coffee since 2001. We find and work directly with talented farmers, paying them a fair price so they can invest in their farm, families, and workers It’s called Union Direct Trade.

Those fair prices, and our investment in smallholder farmers, make our speciality coffee extra special. We hand-roast our coffee in small batches. Tiny, carefully-tended batches. To us, roasting is an art. And it shows. All our coffees are scored 84 and above on the SCAA’s international scale – the definitive measure of coffee quality. And our micro-lots? (Small quantities of rare, incredible coffees, grown in the best conditions possible.) Those typically score more than 88. It’s all thanks to our people. The farmers who grow our coffee. The roastmasters working tirelessly to perfect each roast. And the trainers, who teach baristas, enthusiasts, beginners – everyone – how to brew exquisite coffee."


We are trying to care more about the environment.

We switched to famous VEGWARE cups made from plants instead of plastic, which makes them entirely compostable.

Additionally, we want to encourage our guests to produce less waste by switching to reusable travel cups many of you already own, or to the Eco-friendly take away cups completely when buying hot drinks at 1815.
