Welcome to Ponsonby Road
Not that it needs an introduction because all you have to do is walk around and you'll gravitate to what suits you most but here is the overall guide:
Just all around general coolness - hipsters and non-hipsters alike frequent this joint. It started as a record store but has evolved into a fully licensed restaurant and bar.... need I say more? I recommend the Ceviche.

This is one of the oldest cafes on the strip and Chris, the owner is a passionate musician and still runs the cafe like it was his nephew. He holds open mike nights, jazz nights, for music nights... Breakfast is hearty and the music is always educational. Also, in my opinion, some of the best eaves dropping conversations available here... lecturers, activists, musicians, creators

Ah, what can I say about the Chapel... I have to say something cos it's directly across the road. The Chapel is an Auckland institution and popular amongst both "collars" ... blue and white that is. 3-6pm is predominantly the "Tradie Hour" builders, contractors... real estate agents (not sure what category they go into), high flying entrepreneurs ... and then from 7pm onwards it turns into a a proper pub night... Sunday Evenings are the main event for all those that can't face Monday without a hangover

Again, going with the classics here... the ones that have stood the test of time. Always reliable. It's not for everyone, some people like a bit more grit but SPQR is a favourite.... you'll understand why as soon as you enter, it's a bit fancy but in an Auckland way... put your Gucci sneakers on ladies and put the Clicquot on ice and keep it coming
