A specialist Belgian beer café with more than 20 imported beers and an extensive Belgian menu. De Fontein Belgian Beer Café in Mission Bay has fantastic views from the large sunny balcony. The place to be and be seen in Auckland.

This Grey Lynn bar reminds me of a saucy little Provincial French Bistro. Gypsy Tea Room gathers a fairly eclectic crowd from poets to car salesmen. Service is good—as is the blackboard menu, which includes a selection of boutique beers and different grape varieties.

This family owned bar and restaurant is not what you’d expect in Pukekohe and the locals are stoked! Harvest has exceptionally good food with a cosmopolitan twist and a decent wine list with Montheith’s beer on tap. They also serve brunch with great coffee (Devoted).

From Auckland’s largest quiz night, to Salsa on Thursdays, and rugby every other night—this bar fills all the gaps. You’d think the Kingslander had been on the scene for an eternity, but no, it’s been over a year since it opened.
