Every City
Needs a Soul

SOUL knows going out these days is much more than just good food and drinks. It’s about experiences you won’t forget and memories you make with your friends and family. That’s why Soul has established itself as a destination for good times in nearly two decades of operation. SOUL’s fresh and unpretentious food and irresistible hand-crafted cocktails deliver elegance and fun in equal measures.

Boasting spectacular sunset views looking out over Auckland’s thriving Viaduct Harbour, SOUL’s live musicians conclude the week just been, rev Saturday nights in Auckland with local and international DJs and ease them into the next by their chilled out Sunday Sessions Summer series. SOUL has achieved the rare feat of being all things to all people: whether you’re looking for a relaxed afternoon of cocktails, business lunch, romantic dinner for two or a late-night party, we’ve got you covered.


Take a look inside


From birthdays to after work get-togethers, long lunches to luxury showcases, the passionate team at Soul will create a truly personalised experience where simple fine food, service and ambience are always paramount. Soul has many options for functions and our menu planning ensures Soul’s most popular dishes are offered, whilst still giving guests a choice on the day/ night. All dietary requirements can be accommodated with advance notice, including vegetarian, religious or allergy needs. We do not allow BYO and charge for beverages on a consumption basis only. A deposit of $500 will secure bookings for large groups of 15 people or more – this is deducted from the final bill on the day.  We can take care of all the arrangements for you including hireage of conference equipment, flowers, birthday cakes and special menus to suit your needs.

Large Groups

Any booking for over 15 people will require our set menu. For dinner, you can select one of our 3 course set menus that your guests will be able to choose from on the night. We advise pre selecting your beverages so our friendly staff can be ready for your arrival. Guests can request an inside or outside table when booking in our main restaurant, however these are not guaranteed and are allocated by seating time and party size on the day. Our interior restaurant can accommodate up to 80 people for a seated lunch or dinner. The restaurant terrace can seat a maximum of 40 people.
2 course set menus are for lunch only.

Private Dining Room

Soul’s private room has expansive glass screens separating the room from our bar zones. This fantastic indoor space overlooks the bar and terrace area. The room accommodates up to 30 guests seated and also has a 60 inch plasma screen available, along with a fireplace for cooler months. There is a minimum of 15 people in the private dining room and the set menu must be selected for guests. Our private room is available for use Sunday through Wednesday all year round and on Thursday during the winter months.
2 course set menus are for lunch only.

There is an additional charge of $100 per hour to hire this space.

Cocktail and Canape Functions

The Private Room 35 – 80 people:

Ideal for canape events, this space can be booked on the proviso that food must be ordered. For cocktail functions, we supply a portable bar, manned by a dedicated barperson. The portable bar carries your pre-selected beverages, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. For parties over 50 people, we can also offer an area of the terrace directly outside the private room, weather permitting (due to it being an uncovered area).  We can partition off this area and leave it empty for guests to mingle, or we can set up furniture as per your requirements.

There is an additional charge of $100 per hour to hire this space.

Parties over 80 people:

For functions over 80 people, we can certainly still accommodate you - the bar area can be booked for your group but it would not be totally private. Guests will be served from our main bar complete with our full range of beer, wine and spirits. You will also have staff assigned to look after your group. There is no private room fee when booking this space, we do suggest keeping the area contained through the hire of garden hedges (which we can assist you with).

Parties of 35 people or less:

(or not wanting to book the private room)

We can accommodate your cocktail party in our bar area, guests will be served from our main bar and canapes can still be passed around your group by our wait staff. There is no fee to hire this space but we will require a deposit to secure this for you.
