Enjoy a meal at local hotspot Downbeat on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday evening, and you’ll be serenaded with the soulful sounds of jazz as you eat.


Set in the heart of the main Orewa strip, it’s a trip back in time. Take a seat amongst striking 1960s décor complete with roomy leather booths and retro tiled floors, and treat your ears as well as your taste buds. The weekly lineup features a variety of talented musicians, each a master of their craft. There’s colourful cocktails, Kiwi wine, craft beer, and daily food and drink specials.


Here’s the music schedule for the next few weeks:



Friday 22 June, 7:30pm – Sperber

Saturday 23 June, 7:30pm – Kim Paterson Trio

Sunday 24 June, 5pm – Alana Goldsmith Group


Friday 29 June, 7:30pm – Kim Paterson Trio

Saturday 30 June, 7:30pm – AB3

Sunday 1 July, 5pm – LPG Dixie Trio
