Living life on the edge is an everyday state of being for Isobar creator Matt Taggart. The adventure athlete & world champion kiteboarder is most at home with his feet off the ground – Hang gliding, paragliding, kiteboarding, snowkiting, surfing, or foiling.

Raglan’s vibrant foodie destination is the culmination of years spent stepping out of his comfort zone, & a lifelong passion for bringing people together, inviting spaces, great coffee & food. Isobar is above all a warm and friendly venue designed to enjoy life to the max.
