Located on the exterior of Westfield Albany on Auckland’s North Shore, The Merchant is a warm and welcoming establishment that provides endless possibilities to suit your next event. Here at The Merchant, we believe that every event has its own story to tell, and for that story we aim to create a unique experience designed specifically for your needs. Our approach is centred on the belief that every event should be about you and not limited by our establishment. With that in mind, every event at The Merchant is a unique blend of colour, variety and style; add in a selection of beautifully curated food and drinks plus great company, and you have the recipe for the best experience.

Here you’ll find plenty of options for your upcoming event, but we’re always available to discuss further tailored options should you need them. We’re armed with an extensive list of industry contacts and will help you create the perfect celebration that’s sure to be talked about long after the last cork is popped!


This is a warm + welcoming space, which is ready + waiting for your next get-together. Whether it’s a long lunch with colleagues, festive feast with friends or dinner with your family – the space works well whatever the occasion. Sun drenched during the day + cosy in the evening. This space has the added benefit of the wooden sliding doors to bring the outside in, for an easy flow onto the Eastern Terrace.

This is a relaxed and sun-filled space that has been used for a variety of events. Definitely a fan favourite amongst our guests, the raised space allows for a relatively private experience, but with the added benefit of still being able to enjoy the festivities of the pub. Often used in conjunction (or part thereof) with the pub as space for larger groups. TV screen available for use.

The Pub is the heart of our venue! Located directly in front of the bar + decked out in relaxed splendour, the pub suits a variety of style of function. Best loved for its casual atmosphere, you can enjoy a get-together with friends, the next sporting event or have the whole space for a special occasion. With a clever mix of both seated + standing space, the pub comes with six large TVs.

Home to what we consider the best sun-drenched deck in Auckland. Whilst the total capacity is as stated below, it’s best divided into its Eastern + Western sides as the front door of the venue separates the two ends. With a mixture of covered + uncovered seating as well as smoking + non-smoking areas, this is both a great space in the summer + winter months. Fancy one of our gourmet BBQs? This is the place for it. We’ll happily corner off an area, though you might make others envious when they smell what’s cooking.
