Auckland, New Zealand

From the team behind the busy Caretaker bar, the concept for Deadshot was inspired by famous drinks destinations like Milk & Honey in New York and The Everleigh in Melbourne. Sandwiched between Freeman and Grey and Renkon, behind an old wooden door, the interior decor is very speakeasy-meets-gastropub, with floor-to-ceiling wood, soft globe lights over the counter, and bar stools or high-top seating for guests in the snug space. Though the atmosphere is moody, the vibe inside is always convivial – with no formal cocktail menu, bartenders and guests must have conversations about likes and dislikes in order to find the right liquid match. The term 'deadshot' is cowboy slang for hard liquor, and between the very precise classics and inventive house cocktails delivered, it's clear the term can be taken to mean this team takes its craft very seriously.
