The Occidental Hotel on Vulcan Lane, Auckland was built in 1870 by American sailor Mr. Edward Perkins. It was famous and known as one of the finest hotels in Auckland in those old days.

In 1999 it was transformed into The Occidental Belgian Beer Cafe which is the first authentic Belgian Beer Cafe in Southern Hemisphere. We proudly serve an extensive selection of the finest Belgian beer and some of the best wines from New Zealand and Australia, complimented by authentic Belgian cuisine.

We recommend you to try our signature steaming mussel pots, or our famous mussel platters (our full menu & drinks list can be viewed on the Food & Bar pages)

Enjoy Belgium's best beers & NZ's famous Green-Lipped Mussels in the heart of Auckland.
