Shopping in Auckland, New Zealand
Where to begin your Auckland shopping? Walk out the door of your hotel and the streets of Takapuna are lined with wonderful boutiques. Visit Victoria Park Market for more than 100 retail outlets promising unusual finds. For a more Polynesian experience, hit the Saturday morning markets where you’ll find exotic foods, flax mats and baskets, bone carvings, tapa cloth, and other Pacific treasures. If you like antique hunting, you’ll find the most opportunities around the Epsom area, inner city, Parnell, Remuera, and Ponsonby. And don’t forget to pick up a gallery guide. Aukland has a wealth of art galleries for perusing. And, don’t forget, the city’s premier performing arts venue, The Bruce Mason Centre, is right in your neighborhood.
Nightlife in Auckland is readily available and staying out all night long is not uncommon. Nocturnal temptations include 24-hour casinos, live theater, dance clubs, pubs and nightclubs. Catch some R&B at the London Bar, jazz at the Alto Casino & Bar at Skycity, Irish music at the Claddagh Irish Pub, or a live band at one of the many pubs and bars around Auckland. There are also many nighttime options in Parnell, Herne Bay, and, of course, Takapuna. The Club Bar at The Spencer on Byron Hotel is always a good place to start. Younger, more adventurous types will want to visit the Viaduct Harbor and Princes Wharf in the central city. Nightclubs and bars throughout New Zealand’s major cities are the perfect opportunity to meet the locals and party the night away.
