Was here awhile ago for some drinks. The ambience is really nice. However, the guy who served us was a bit arrogant and interrupts when we were talking and doesn't even excuse himself or something polite to interrupt us. Nonetheless, the overall experience was good and would be coming back and try their food.
Really great venue. Drinks and meals by day (check out their stunning $10 eye fillet steak deal on a Tuesday night - locals tip), with reasonable (typical bar) prices - e.g. $20 hamburger, etc. At night time (Friday, Saturday) this becomes Ponsonby's top nightlife attraction. Packed dance floors with a rocking DJ and lots of well dressed people make this a fantastic venue for a night out. Often hosts local celebrities (e.g. TV, rugby) who have made this place their nightclub of choice. Great place to people watch, drink and watch the sunset, or to make new friends - plenty of people here to meet and greet.
Went to Longroom for the first time a few weeks ago - really enjoyable bar. It was a busy night but the service was quick and there was great range of drinks to choose from (different choices than most bars and very affordable). The music was good and the door staff were friendly, great atmosphere all round! Awesome bar and I will definitely go back!!
