Hi does anyone know what the nightlife is like in Auckland? I love funky house music do any of the clubs play this, and are there lots of late night bars/clubs??

Hi there,

haven't really been out myself in Auckland yet, but as I've heard, there are plenty of clubs and bars.

Don't know about the house music thing though, kiwis have got their 'own taste' for music, but I'm sure you will be able to find something you like.

The best is, to look at the notice boards in the backpacker where you are staying or just to ask the staff there. They will definitely be able to help you!

have fun
Kathi

Most of the clubs are in the CBD, although there are a few 'local' in the suburbs. For an interesting retro experience head to Boogie Wonderland on lower Queen St. Totally decked out in 70s retro, and plays all 70s/80s retro music - has one of those flashing tile dancefloors!!

Seriously, I don't remember were we used to go out when I was living in Auckland!!!! That's scary, because I did go out...

Well, I'll give it a try anyway... There are some cool bars/pubs/clubs on K Road. The bars on Ponsonby are supposed to be pretty good to but I never went there personally.

There's also the possibility to just hang out with backpackers, then the pub managed by ACB (Auckland Central Backpacker's) is a good option. I think it's called "the globe" or something like that... I hate to admit it, but I actually had quite a lot of fun there... But you need to be quite drunk though!
