The Bluestone Room is a great place to go for aferwork drinks, the happy hour being extemely good. Check out the beer towers, they are great value and saves hitting the bar each time for a fresh drink. The buffalo wings are a must try!
This is probably my favourite pub in New Zealand. It's in one of the oldest buildings in Auckland with original kauri roof beams. Inside it has the oldest well in Auckland covered with glass. It serves the best beer in New Zealand - Monteiths Golden Lager. The food is great, the ambience is great. Go there.
