Food­ies and fash­ion­istas re­joice – a new bou­tique ho­tel is open­ing its doors in cen­tral Auck­land, with iconic Kiwi la­bel WORLD as sig­na­ture de­sign part­ner, and a Miche­lin-starred chef on food. SO/ Auck­land is due to open in No­vem­ber in the his­toric for­mer Re­serve Bank build­ing, Brit­o­mart. It’s the lat­est in the SO ho­tels port­fo­lio, which har­nesses the tal­ents of world­class de­sign­ers to cre­ate ev­ery­thing from uni­forms to fit-outs. WORLD’S con­tri­bu­tion in­cludes an em­blem (a swirling vol­cano-in­spired de­sign), art­work, cush­ions for chauf­feur cars and staff at­tire, which, in true WORLD style, re­flects in­di­vid­u­al­ity rather than uni­for­mity. On the food and drink front, you can en­joy an aper­i­tif on the out­door rooftop bar (the city’s high­est) be­fore head­ing to 15th floor restau­rant Har­bour So­ci­ety. The eatery gets French in­spi­ra­tion from chef Marc de Pas­so­rio (pic­tured), for­mer owner of Miche­lin-starred L’esprit de la Vi­o­lette in Aix-en-provence. It prom­ises to be a de­li­cious ex­pe­ri­ence all round. ac­corho­tels.com
