Depends really for a night out we usually go to the viaduct and just bar hop aroundthere..it is fshit house though the distance between clubs I hate navigating around and walking around in heels is painful as the pavements are all crappy and uneven. The fact I'm not 21 probably has something to do with my jaded complaining.
....If I'm meeting someone for drinks or something usually Wynyard Quarter or Ponsonby.. maybe not so much now I'm located west 100% will just be Hangar or something
There's more bars along and near K Rd that I'll try before going to Ponsonby Rd. Wne Cellar, 4:20/Rising Sun, D.O.C even Whammy can be ok if someone decent is on. There's also meant to be a bar that Coco's owners are putting in place of Mr Morning.
I usually go to Tyler St Garage, because there are always tables available and they have pretty good service. BCC and 1885 are also good. I really like the bartenders at 1885, they are so switched on and make a mean French Martini (which is pretty much the only drink I drink these days).
After going out to Whiskey till maybe 4am, and then sleeping for a few hours, we rocked up to Supper at 8am before breakfast on Sunday. Ferksta was on the decks and had a good little bounce around ... almost feel like a local there these days ... even though I only head there maybe once a month ... lots of familiar faces etc .... soaked in a spa after having breakfast .... bliss
