Everyone loves a good happy hour, especially after a day at the office. We've rounded up the best happy hours that the city centre has to offer, check them out below. 


Britomart is home to many award-winning restaurants and eateries, making it a great place to enjoy a happy hour! If you're feeling thirsty but also hungry, check out kingi, where you can get some delicious snacks alongside your beverage of choice, or, if you're in the mood for a cocktail, we'd recommend Talulah's $10 cocktails. 


Viaduct and Waterfront 

This precinct comes alive with bars and restaurants, so you’ll be spoilt for choice!  It may be hard to go past a $10 Margarita from Frida Cocina Mexican & Tequila Bar or grab a $12 beverage at Bellini Bar’s Aperitivo hour. 


Federal and Elliott 

Right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city centre, you'll find Federal & Elliott Street. Here you can venture 53 floors up the Sky Tower for The Sugar Club's happy hour and incredible views! Or, if you're after something a little more low key, head to The Fiddler Irish Bar for their $8 happy hour. 


Wynyard Quarter 

The place where the city meets the sea, Wynyard Quarter, is a thriving precinct with plenty of bustling bars and eateries. Take your pick between North Park, The Wreck or Wynyard Grill’s happy hours.
