298 Victoria Street, Hamilton Central, New Zealand

A place to meet, eat and drink, Riverbank Lane is home to a number of bespoke businesses that combined are creating an eclectic and contemporary atmosphere in the very heart of Hamilton. 

Meet up with friends in the sheltered alleyway, get a new do at Fox & Kennedy barbers, or sit back with a flat white at Café Kopi and watch Victoria Street life walk on by.

Fashion retailer FOUND and the infamous Browsers Bookshop are also found here, so there’s really no reason not to visit this superbly designed inner-city hideaway.
