Budget-friendly (but totally fabulous) ways to experience Auckland hospo hotspots

Balancing the budget while supporting local business can be tricky. But if you’re an Auckland local, perhaps a “power lunch”, a “quiz series” or a “otto hour” is a budget-friendly way to experience these fabulous hotspots.


Leave the office early and head the happiest of hours at Somm on Auckland’s waterfront. Enjoy a selection of $7 drinks from 3pm – 5pm daily or visit on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to indulge in $2 oysters (until they’re sold out). The oysters are served au naturel with a touch of lemon, they make the perfect prelude to your evening drinks and dinner. Somm also has a series of live music performances throughout the summer.
