Like the Re:Start Mall in nearby Christchurch, the Porthole Bar is built from shipping containers. It's also built on the site of the late, lamented Volcano Café and Lava Bar, a casualty of the 2011 earthquake; the new bar incorporates much of its building materials, artwork and memories. The Porthole is best enjoyed on a sunny day, when the patio and garden invite lingering and conversation. In addition to drinks, the bar offers a small selection of cheese and meat platters, burritos and salads.
