Owned by the Nourish Group, Euro Bar is an institution in Auckland’s upmarket dining scene with a loyal clientele of inner-city business professionals and influential creatives.
Mabel worked closely with Euro to conceptualise and orchestrate the Euro Spring Series; three ticketed lunch events designed around conversations with Auckland’s preeminent culture-makers and city-shapers, including Juliette Hogan, father-and-son architect duo Pip and Nat Cheshire, and Auckland Art Gallery’s director Rhana Devenport.
We teamed our speaking talent with magazine editors from their respective industries for interview-style chat around their work and connections to the city, while the chefs at Euro designed exclusive dishes for guests to enjoy, based on each speakers’ work. Some event-goers even went home with gorgeous goodie bags provided by the speakers.
Based on the success of the first series, Mabel helped Euro to run a second Euro Spring Series the following year, featuring Karen Walker, Ludo Campbell-Reid, head of the Auckland Design office, and architects.
