Therapy Live Sessions

Sundays 5- 8pm
Sundays always come around too quickly don’t they? You’ve just about started to wind down and feel good and suddenly there’s Monday looming down at you and killing your buzz. Our Sunday sessions are designed to ease out this process. Wanaka seems to draw and inspire incredible music from all over the world and the genre spectrum. We do our best to source the perfect soundtracks to enjoy a carefully concocted beverage to. We have happy hour wine specials while gigs are on and an atmosphere that helps make like Monday won’t happen, get yourself down from 5-8pm to soak it all in.

 

Saturday Vinyl Sessions

Saturdays 9pm - close
Here at Cork we like to take time to honour the traditional way of doing things; we make classic cocktails the way they were meant to be made, we have an extensive list of wines from the ‘old world’ and it is within this vein that we choose to play host to weekly vinyl nights. Wanaka’s music scene really punches above its weight and there is a cornucopia of super talented DJ’s. We like to gather the ‘crème de la crème’ and invite them to bring in their own vinyl collections obtained through decades of passion and hunting to throw down. This collection of de-sleeving dynamos join us every Saturday from 9pm until late to pump out a blend of great music with no gimmicks. The way it was meant to be done.
