The Jefferson turns into The Jane
during New Zealand Fashionweek
In a city buzzing with the leading ladies of New Zealand Fashion Week, acclaimed whisky bar The Jefferson reconnects with its feminine side through temporary cocktail bar The Jane.
From the 29th of August until the 2nd of September, The Jane (aptly named after Thomas Jefferson’s mother) brings homage to women who’ve shaped history with a limited edition menu of whisky cocktails and various spirited events. For five days, The Jane is the spot for any style-minded, fun-loving woman. And of course, any man who wants to join the party. After all, the days that whisky was the preferred drink of men exclusively have long gone.
