Sick of not being able to source the fancy ingredients to pull off a slick cocktail or jazz up your dinner party? Swing by the epicureans at Decant in Riccarton where a huge range of French and European wines sits alongside more than 20 varieties of French cheese (think Bleau d'Auvergne and Comte) and escargots, foie gras, caviar, and Confit de Canard (duck in a can). This gourmand’s go-to not only takes the ‘hard to get’ out of ‘hard to get wine’, but also stocks a tastebud-tickling selection of exotic liqueurs and spirits the likes of Calvados, Armagnac, Martin Millers, Pineau de Charentes, Pommeau, Ratafia, Pastis and Gentiane while an on-site café supplies instant gratification.

Christchurch’s little slice of Italy, Baretta bar and restaurant, is all set to go troppo when it moonlights as the Havana Club Embassy Bar over two coming weekends. From Thursday 27 March, and then again the following weekend from Thursday 3 April, Baretta party goers are set to experience a little Latin fever with an offering that Fidel himself would be proud of. Things kick off with the launch party on Thursday (27 March) at 6pm featuring a feisty mix of Latin music from the Doc Sanchez Trio, Cuban canapés, and (of course) lashings of Mojitos and other Havana Club cocktail specials. (Mmm, we love us some Mojitos.) The Embassy Bar will continue to rock out over the rest of the weekend, so bust out that white linen suit or slinky cocktail dress and head down to stand coolly by the bar and live out your James Bond or Bond Girl...

Hankering for a burger fix, the Cityscape crew rocked up to neighbouring Burgers & Beers Inc. on Cranford Street to rekindle our two-handed love affair with Christchurch’s bloody good burgermeisters.There are times you have that simple, powerful craving to flat-out monster a burger. But casual dining doesn’t have to mean slumming it under the golden arches. Cue Burgers & Beers – with its Cranford Street store dangerously located just up the road from the Cityscape office, we decide to tap gourmet burgers done right of a Friday night. Inside it’s buzzing with shiny happy people kicking off the start of the weekend under a veritable pop culture explosion of recognisable characters adorning the walls, while shiny barstools and benchtops provide a classic Tarantinoesque burger-joint feel.We tuck into the killer Super Bugger Burger – an intimidating beast packed with two sizable beef patties, lashings of bacon, an egg, salad, relish and aioli....
