Lovebites: On The Waterfront

20 July, 2016

Our waterfront area, including Wynyard Quarter, the Viaduct, and Silo Park, is an absolute gem in Auckland’s crown with spectacular dining, events and attractions to keep city dwellers entertained and coming back for more year round. 

Check out the 7 spots we always go back to in this stunning area of the central city: 

Oyster & Chop 
Sad that Bluff season is drawing to a close? Head to Oyster & Chop on the waterfront for their Oyster Happy Hour. They source 12 different brands throughout the year, plus their menu includes perfect champagne pairings.

 

Auckland Fish Market 
Watch the drama unfold at the Auckland Fish Markets each morning, where local restaurants, cafes and seafood suppliers all bid on the catch of the day. These Dutch style auctions take place every weekday morning from 6am.

 

New Zealand Maritime Museum 
Open every day except Christmas, the magnificent New Zealand Maritime Museum should definitely be on your central city bucket list. With world-class exhibitions, activities for the kids and scores of information on New Zealand's rich maritime history it's a great day out with the family.

 

Soul Bar & Bistro (Re-opening this August)
A much loved spot by Auckland's social set, Soul Bar has also hosted some very famous faces over the years. Add your name to the list at this beautiful waterfront restaurant.

 

Bikes & Bends 
Bikes and Bends have found a new home over winter, and are offering a selection of outdoor and indoor classes throughout the day, so you can practice yoga with unparalleled city views.

 

Baduzzi 
These covetable Virgin Mary salt spoons are custom made by a New Zealand designer especially for Baduzzi. Want one for your table at home? You can buy them at the bar to take away. 

 

Silo Park 
This is the site from which Auckland city was built. The site itself is now home to playgrounds, basketball courts, food truck gatherings, an open air cinema, weekend markets, music festivals, and art exhibitions throughout the year, and even a forest of Christmas trees in December.
