Where to party in Auckland.

One of life’s biggest questions is: where should I go to party in Auckland? And we are here to serve! There’s a whole host of nightclubs in Auckland, from the sophisticated cocktail bars to the shameless early-morning dancing clubs. We list a variety of places on the listicle below!

Auckland is the largest city in New Zealand, so we’ve made sure our list extends to the nightclubs available outside of the city centre and into the surrounding suburbs – basically, where ever the party is at. After all, there’s more to Auckland than Queen Street.

So head to the places listed below if you are looking to bust some serious moves. Otherwise, take a look at the extent of the Auckland party scene in our Guide to Auckland Nightlife.

Base Hostels

1. Danny Doolans

The Irish Bar on the Viaduct Harbour is always a guarentee at the end of the night for some drunken dancing to whatever live band is playing. Look out for the occasional comedy quiz nights too.

2. Habana Joes

A backpacker bar means backpacker drink prices. Habana Joes should be on every backpacker’s itinerary on a night out in Auckland, whether it’s for cheap drinks at the beginning of the night or for drunken dancing at the end. It’s also a good place to grab some cheap eats too.

3. Lenin

The vodka bar on Princes Wharf has a distinct Russian theme, as well as plenty of seating for the civilised and a dance floor for the not-so-civilised!

6. Ponsonby Social club

In a suburb so hipster that one of its bars is called “Ponsonby Social Club”, Ponsonby Social Club is a must when having a night out in this cool little suburb of Auckland. Live music and DJs are here regularly so round up the gang and get yourself to Ponsonby!

Location: 152 Ponsonby Road, Ponsonby

7. Snapdragon

Snapdragon brings the glitz and glam to the Viaduct Harbour with its ideal setting overlooking the harbour and the people stumbling about in the streets below. By day, it’s a nice place to get a cocktail, by night, things liven up for some dancefloor action.

Location: Quay Street, Viaduct Harbour

8. Studio the Venue
