From the team behind Culprit, Little Culprit is a cocktail bar & wine lounge you'll want to try out!

Situated on the corner of Queen and Wyndham Streets, directly across the road from big brother, it aims to become an iconic heartbeat in Auckland’s lower cityscape.

The cosy and sophisticated atmosphere is the perfect place to slow down, relax and sip on delicious cocktails, beautiful wine and scrumptious bites.

Little Culprit has two distinct spaces. The entry level opens into the grand dispensary where you can sit at the bar and watch the bartenders create old and new classics. The lower lounge is an intimate space inspired by hotel bars of yore.

The acclaimed chefs from Culprit and Lowbrow have bought their magic across the street and at Little Culprit you’ll be able to sample some of their old favourites and discover new delights. The famous duck liver parfait makes an appearance on the grazing platter alongside the week’s charcuterie, olives, cheeses, breads, handmade crackers and condiments - the pickled watermelon rind is a must try. Clams, oysters, savoury waffles, curious croppers, little bites and little treats, whatever the time of day or night, there’s something to tempt taste buds.

$45 Social Hour gin cocktails + grazing platter

Choose between the Sour Apple Spritz, a cocktail with Dancing Sands Sauvignon Blanc Gin, sour apple soda and lime, or the Salty Dog with rhubarb infused gin, grapefruit and a salty rim. Enjoy a grazing platter for two alongside your drinks.
