Event description
One last hurrah in the original bar!

About this Event

On 7 November, we’re throwing a party for the Shadows alumni. One last hurrah, for old times' sake. There'll be musical acts from Shadz eras gone by and a room full of other Shadz alumni to make you feel right at home. Bring your friends, bring your mum, bring your friends’ mums - because it’s likely they’ve all felt the thrill of not being sure your shoe will come unstuck from the floor in that bar.

It’s a beautiful thing when any relationship lasts 36 years, and Shadows bar has been nurturing the University of Auckland student body for several generations. The birthplace of just as many good ideas as bad ones, a session at Shadows is a rite of passage akin to donning a graduation robe.

In mid-November, the original incarnation of Shadows student bar will shut its doors for the last time. It ain’t the end: in the new year, like a phoenix from the ashes, Shadows will rise again - but in a new location.

A space soaked in more than just history, the old Shadz deserves to be celebrated and remembered; so come and give it a send off worthy of the institution that it is. With the current cohort of students away preparing for their exams, the week of November 4th is the perfect time to enjoy a quiet bevvy and a wander down memory lane. We’ll be open every weekday from 12pm till late.

If you have any photos of your time at Shadows, please do send them through - we'd love to be able to fully appreciate its evolution over the years.

Check Facebook to keep up to date and we'll see you on the 7th!
