Penny Black Cocktail Bar

Cromwell's Cocktail Bar Penny Black offers signature cocktails, local craft beer and wines to enjoy Cromwell Heritage Precinct on the Waterfront of Lake Dunstan.

Visit us

Remembering years gone by, we kept to the Victorian era, honouring the first adhesive postage stamp, with a bend towards the Industrial Revolution, linking us to the new Dunstan Cycle Trail. You can find us at the start of the Dunstan Cycle Trail, or a short stroll through the Cromwell Heritage Precinct.All are welcome... cyclists, ladies in frocks, men in top and tails, families wanting to gather… or just a quiet drink and a nibble. Our motto at Penny Black is, when you meet at Penny Black, your burdens are halved and joys doubled.
