As a tribute to the venues of yesteryear, 39 reincarnates the spirit of a bygone era. Embracing bohemian vibes, our sanctuary offers delectable libations, great company, and lively entertainment. Our mission is to take care of you, ensuring your night at Cafe 39 is truly unforgettable.

A team of incredible individuals made this transformation possible in July 2021. Organized by Adam Neal through Choice Hospo, our venue was revitalized with the creative talents of Haley Brown from The Art Dept NZ, skilled craftsmanship from Rag’s Reno’s, vibrant paintwork by talented hospitality folks, and a distressed finish by Brendan Ryan. Together, they morphed Cafe 39 from a “90s Cafe” into a captivating New Orleans styled speakeasy. We’re forever grateful to these remarkable people for enabling us to pursue our passion.
