Bar
“One of Gisborne's iconic spots to have an evening beer or wine. Sometimes hosts food events and great music acts. Decor is old machinery, planes, bikes, heavy metal stuff! Took some guests who arrived from Aussie on a motorbike, as it looked like their kind of place, and they thought they'd arrived in biker's heaven!”
