New Zealand’s first ever Soda Counter, at Corner Burger

Pull up a stool and watch a nostalgic-inspired cocktail get whipped up with flair in front of you by a Soda Jerk – the liveliest bartenders in town. The cocktails, including the Smokin’ Kombucha Tea, Flamin’ Ramos Gin & Tonic Fizz, Creamin’ Cola Rum Jerk Spider and Bubblin’ Raspberry Old Fashioned Lemonade, have been cleverly crafted by award-winning bartender, Barney Toy. The pop-up is a modern take on the counters that were found on almost every New York Corner in the 1920s and will be open for two days on the rooftop at Westfield Newmarket.
