An Evening of Gin and Jazz

Say goodbye to any winter blues by joining us for an evening of gin and jazz at Homewood, the official residence of the British High Commissioner to New Zealand.
Nestled in the heart of Karori, this grand residence will be transformed into a British Jazz Club, where guests will be greeted on arrival with one of our signature cocktails and entertainment from one of Wellington's well-known Jazz trio bands, who will be performing a selection of British blues tunes throughout the evening.
Sample the array of fine gins on offer, while tucking into British and New Zealand-inspired canapés of Pacific oysters, smoked eel, roast beef and marinated smoked salmon created by Homewood's renowned chef, James Perry – formerly of London’s Savoy Hotel and the Ritz.
