Shed 2 On West Quay Marks Its 22nd year

Event Details

It’s raining, and most people would say Napier’s West Quay has seen better days, and even better nights.

But, that’s par for the course in the bar and restaurant business, which, just like the inner harbour across the road, has its ebbs and flows.

It’s well known to Dennis Buckley who with established publican and entrepreneur Jeremy Bayliss pioneered bar operation on the Quay when they opened Shed 2 in a former wool store in May 1996.

Given that the area would come to regard summer as the season to make hay while the sun shines, kicking off at the start of a winter was a bit of a punt, but with knowledge that such sports as rugby and basketball on the big screen could carry the darker months if they planned it right.
