There are endless opportunities for the right business here. Think sunny afternoons, craft beer and cocktails flowing accompanied by light meals or tapas with live music playing on the outdoor stage. 

This building sits in the centre of the Village surrounded by galleries, destination retail shops, with Detour Theatre is next door and The Village Community Cinema down the cobbled street. At times you’ll be able to hear the ‘tap tap tap’ of master carver Whare Thompson as he works on a magnificent Pou plan to adorned our city somewhere.

With over 266000 people entering The Historic Village grounds in 2021 there is no shortage of potential customers. Customers will come from The Kollective collaborative work space, 17th Avenue business park, Tauranga Hospital, Wananga, local residents as well as domestic and international visitors. The Historic Village event venues host a number of business events and delegates who’ve attended these throughout the day will look for a place to have a drink and a bite to eat before heading home. 

Plans and budgets are in place for 2024 for a major renewal and upgrade of the building. The successful applicant will be required to have input into the detailed design of this upgrade so it is fit for purpose and a hospitality outlet.

Available to rent from 1 October 2022. For more information: Vacant tenancy December 2021 - information.

It is key to us that our tenants fit with our purpose and goals. You can read more about this in the registration form, but in short it comes down to being welcoming, inclusive, vibrant and providing opportunities for the community to connect.
