I Double Deer You

Pravda's Wellington story is that of progression and moving with the times, whilst staying true to the originality of the building we call home.

The United Building opened in February 1931 by then Prime Minister, the Right Hon. G.W. Forbes. It was a members-only club for the Commercial Travellers and Warehousemen’s Association, and hailed by Wellington's mayor at the time as "The finest club of its kind in New Zealand".

The dark oak, chandeliers and red plush sofas still tell this original story, and you can feel the history of the building in every corner. Throughout the years it has gone from a gentleman's club to a pizza parlour, café and bistro, evolving to what it is today. We want to show the elegance and history of our venue through our Dine Wellington dish using historic Kiwi produce with a few modern twists to emphasise the evolution of The United Building.

Dish Description: Pure South venison cutlet, The Immigrant’s Son coffee-spiced and juniper venison Denver leg with Kāpiti blue cheese potato gratin, carrot purée, grilled endive and cherry shallot jam.
