Worse bar ever. We bought a spreets deal for dinner for two at Suite Bar - have gone in 3 times to use it. Each time they had run out of pizza bases or had already served too many people on the deal to accomodate us. Now my voucher is expired and I have wasted $30. Not impressed.

Very upmarket establishment, small in size, so good if you like very private cocktails, or bottle of wine perhaps. When I was there allot of people were actually eating which I was unaware that this place was a restaurant too, but none the less the food smelled great so must remember to have a meal next time.

Went here when they introduced their $10 lunch menu. However most of the dishes on the menu weren't being served that day, and they also gave us only one menu to share between 5 people which was weird. Food was average, took quite a while to arrive and the portions were rather small. The waiter was very friendly though. Probably a better place for drinks at night.

It is ironic that, in a town where so many bars are pretentious with little justification, one bar which could justify 'attitude' is friendly, down to earth and welcoming. Clean, well thought out and executed surroundings, staff that know their stuff, and cocktails to die for. Quiet from 11pm to 3 am, but that just means you have the excellent bartenders' full attention. Oh, and they do espresso. Genius.

I've only been in the country for less than three weeks and already think I've found my favourite! Can't say I had any negative experiences at all in the three times I've visited Suite so far.
Nevermind - each to their own I'spose eh!
If you haven't been - do make sure you pay Suite a visit (but leave room for me!)

Usually we would go in and flirt and joke around with Tim and Chris (bartenders) now there is a chick working there who looks like she needs a hug. The other loud annoying chick rarly smiles and hates serving chicks?? what is going on??

There is no where else in Auckland where I can find such a great selection of beer. The staff are able to describe the taste of each one in detail which allows us to sample to our hearts content. The atmosphere at Suite is welcoming and classy.

I had the pleasure of spending a midweek night after work at Suite recently. This is one place I wish i had found before now- tucked away downstairs from the busy traffic of Hobson st i found nirvana- 40 different beers to choose from! From Wellington's Tuatara to Emersons to Moa they had all my favs and more. The staff were really cool and mellow- and knew a lot about the products. Had some yummy food off the menu- and then got stuck in to the beers- I spotted one of the trophies on the backbar for best drinks selection at NZ bar awards and can see why as the missus was kept more than happy with some in her words "damn good" cocktails.
Am now a fan of the place and recommend it to anyone.
