What's the Haps?
File under "curses"; we jumped the gun and the wait for enjoying a beer alongside some delicious dumplings from Pot Sticker Dumpling Bar (man, we are HANGING. OUT. for this) will be just a bit longer – their new venue in Lichfield Street will be opening in August. But in the meantime you can still get your dumpling fix as required at their flagship outfit at The Colombo!
A new concept store at The Colombo, Collective houses a mix of homewares, books, a florist, fashion, jewellery and more. The unusual take on a department store is designed as a showcase for great products and design. You’ll find the contemporary & vintage, iconic brands, the rare & affordable, from NZ and abroad – all linked by a sense of inimitable style.
Fine Fare Fast
