Happy hour at The Pantry


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, and indulge in a bite to eat alongside your beverage of choice. If you're in the mood for a cocktail, we recommend Talulah's popular $10 cocktails!


The Viaduct & Wynyard Quarter 

The waterfront comes alive with bars and restaurants in the evenings - so you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to a happy hour (or two). Fan favourite, Bivacco's sunset sessions are just as epic as they sound - complimentary roving bites alongside drink specials, what's not to like? Holey Moley is another great spot to soak in waterside views - get competitive and play a round of mini golf while you're there! 


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! If you're after something a little more low key, head to The Fiddler Irish Bar for their $8 happy hour. 


More happy hours around the city 

There are plenty more happy hours dotted around the city centre. Check out Everybody's 'happiest hours on earth' nestled in Fort Lane or treat yourself on a Thursday at Brothers Beer & Juke Joint, located in City Works Depot and Commercial Bay.
