About us

Freida Margolis sits on a quaint corner of West Lynn...a butcher for 117 years - it's now a place of whimsy and conviviality - with the vibes of live music and vinyl on the stereo  - it's just what it is - friendly and genuine..

"Top choice bar in Auckland: Formerly a butchers – look for the Westlynn Organic Meats sign – this corner location is now a great little neighbourhood bar with a backstreets of Bogota ambience. Loyal locals sit outside with their well-behaved dogs, supping on sangria, wine and craft beer, and enjoying eclectic sounds from the owner's big vinyl collection.
