Kick back on a New Zealand road trip - Find night spots to enjoy with new friends

Ding Dong Lounge

One for every rock lover, Ding Dong Lounge hosts acclaimed live acts and rock DJs with banging playlists that guarantee a great night. If that weren’t enough, they also have a pretty amazing snack menu – the seafood basket is pretty epic, just saying.

Face Club

Often lauded as Auckland’s best nightclub, it’s impossible not to sing the praises of Face Club. With resident DJs dedicated to getting people on the dance floor, the party is always quick to get started here. With good vibes, friendly staff and super cool people, if you’re on a mission to let your hair down, Face is where you should head first!

Danny Doolans

With live music every day and amazing food (check out their Pick & Mix Platter if you’re feeling peckish!) Danny Doolans combines classic Irish pub vibes with kiwi cuisine. Have a dance and a singalong from classic tunes to chart hits. Lifelong friendships are made here: there must be something in the beer!

Swing By 1885 On Your New Zealand Road Trip

If you’re up for a super classy evening, 1885 is the place to be. Inside you’ll find several very different spaces, including a luxe Champagne room fitted out with 1930s inspired ultra-opulent décor. With great music, an incredible drinks menu and intriguing atmosphere, 1885 is just too good to miss out on!

There’s also a hidden basement bar inside 1885 and every Thursday the irresistible dulcet tones of authentic jazz music entices music lovers from across Auckland to its comfy leather love seats. Here you can live the Bond lifestyle for an evening with a gin martini and an abundance of stuffed olives. Pretty tempting, right?
