Auckland's newest club Impala is here.
Impala takes up residence in the basement of the former Southern Insurance Building on Shortland Street in the CBD where CODE vacated more than one year ago. Echoes of the building's stately history shine in the women's bathroom with a steel safe door firmly attached to the wall, and a curl of small steps rising up from the basement to ground level.
Impala is the baby of Red Rum Touring international event promoters Daniel Farley and Reuben Rivers Smith, who have brought hugely popular DJ acts to Kiwi shores, with the prestigious list including Wilkinson, Dillon Francis, Flosstradamus and What So Not.
The Impala layout has been built from the ground up over the past six months with the DJ experience its central feature. A raised DJ booth sits between two lounge spaces, with a "no compromise" sound system designed to uplift every corner of this significantly upgraded restoration project.
Expect big things and even bigger acts for this club resetting Auckland's nightclub scene.
