Opening of Sylvia Park's The Grove

Auckland foodies have even more reason to celebrate this Christmas with the opening of Sylvia Park’s new dining precinct, The Grove.

Sylvia Park owner, Kiwi Property, will today celebrate the official opening of the centre’s $8.9million dining expansion, bringing together some exceptional new dining experiences as well as a host of Sylvia Park favourites.

Also set to impress is The Grove’s new combined sculptural and entertainment artwork, The Pod – a multi-purpose installation that will double as a performance area.  Inspired by an unfolding mangrove seed, The Pod will open from each side to reveal a 5-metre by 3-metre stage space.

This weekend The Pod’s performance space will host a range of entertainment, including performances from Jackie Clark, Heart & Soul Band, Geoff Ong, Anthony Utama and Max Earnshaw.  A schedule of performances is available at sylviapark.org.

The launch of The Grove follows the opening of New Zealand’s first H&M and Zara stores at Sylvia Park late last year and cements Sylvia Park’s position as New Zealand’s favourite shopping centre, attracting over 14 million visitors a year with an unrivalled fashion, retail and dining offering.

The Grove’s tantalising line-up includes:

Hawker & Roll

Hawker & Roll is a spin-off eatery from Josh Emett and Fleur Caulton’s successful Madam Woo, specialising in Malaysian street or ‘hawker’ food, including the beloved Hawker Roll made famous at Madam Woo’s. Hawker food refers to authentic street, or street market cuisine – unpretentious, crowd pleasing, traditional favourites packed full of flavour and ideal for sharing.
