Welcome to The Phoenix Tauranga

The Phoenix is Tauranga’s newest home of Monteiths, risen from the ashes of the most disastrous fire to occur on The Strand.

Well, sort of…

 

In 1916 eleven shops, a hotel and a timber yard were reduced to ashes.  96 years later, the area in which you sit housed the famous Horny Bull restaurant which also came crashing to the ground in a controlled demolition.  The site was one of many Tauranga buildings which was listed as earthquake prone and had to meet strict council laws.  You are now sitting in a state of the art green star insulated building… The first of many to be erected on the Strand to comply with new earthquake laws.

 

The Phoenix pays respect to the Horny Bull by using the brickwork and hand crafted toilet doors from their old restaurant.  Our name has been inspired by, and pays homage to the past and present fire brigade of Tauranga in our themes and touch points around the bar.  Keep up the good work, and we look forward to sharing a beer with you.
