The Exchange Brasserie & Bar

The Scenic Hotel Te Pania's Exchange Bar and Brasserie is located on ground level, enclosed by large glass windows that allow you to look out to the bay and the passerbys on Marine Parade. In summer the Brasserie is extended to the outside area so guests and locals alike can enjoy alfresco dining and enjoy the balmy Hawke's Bay weather and relaxed atmosphere.

Opening hours

Open for breakfast from 6:30am-10am daily. Dinner is from 5pm until 9pm daily. Insomniac menu available from 9pm-6:30am.

Celebrating the region around us
