A leisurely walking tour discovering hidden bars where Auckland comes alive after dark. You go early so you can remember where to come at night! These are hard to find hot spots off the beaten track where locals in the know go in the old part of town. Some of our highlights are; a bar set in Auckland’™s first picture theatre; bars in cellars below sea level; a house bar in an Art Deco Hotel and more. Discover Auckland’s hidden bar culture and their barmen, owners or managers as you visit a number of venues around the city centre where you will be treated to an array of fabulous cocktail tastings using seasonal, local and imported ingredients. The tour includes dialogue of downtown Auckland’™s colonial history and geography as well as information about the bar visited and the bar’s philosophy behind the drinks they make. Go where the locals go and feel like a local with your local guide in a small group.
