Pan-Asian delicacies, killer cocktails and boisterous vibes are on the menu, with Ebisu’s head chef Fred Wong at the helm – think coconut espresso martinis and five spice duck and you get the idea. A surreal neon aesthetic and spectacular views complete the experience.

It’s one of the best spots in the city but until now, it’s been reserved for very good behaviour from a select few people. SEVEN has ripped up that rulebook and dialled up the fun. So ditch the sensible shoes, call your bad friends and get up there.

If you’ve never done paper umbrellas, fake palm trees and pina coladas then you basically haven’t lived, but you needn’t fear – Britomart’s newest bar, Talulah, is here to save you from humdrum oblivion.

Inspired by the gorgeously garish tiki bars of 1950s L.A, Talulah sits above The Chamberlain on Tyler St. While you might not find every tacky detail normally associated with this kind of joint, you’ll certainly find the vibe, which involves a major focus on escapism and hospitality. There’s a beautiful mural of a leafy, otherworldly scene and stunning views across Auckland Harbour which will help “transport you to a tropical South Pacific paradise in which you can forget your troubles”. There are classic tropical drinks from previous decades and special tiki-inspired creations. Talulah’s drinks use fresh juices, custom made syrups, house produced infusions and of course, many fine Caribbean rums. Snacks come care of The Chamberlain and include, amongst other dishes, deep-fried pies.

Any bar whose bio states that “fun is mandatory” is a must-visit; especially one with such easy, bright, carefree feels. The only problem will be tearing yourself away to re-enter reality.

In their funky Britomart location, OFF Wax & Laser and ON Brow House take the ‘serious’ out of seriously . . .

From artisan bakers handcrafting pastries in the morning, through to oysters and gelato at night, Amano is an unbeatable source of local flavours with an international twist.

Amano means both “made by hand” and “with love” in Italian and this suits the spot perfectly, for every thing here is handmade with love.

Head baker Dan Cruden oversees the bakery, where the menu evolves throughout the day. Mornings open with a nod to France; glistening pain aux raisins, Paris brests and other pastries fill the cabinets, before hearty Italian sandwiches, seasonal soups, salads and pizza-by-the-slice are introduced for lunch.

As the sun sets, one end of the bakery develops into an aperitivo bar where you can indulge in a negroni or aperol spritz alongside pre-dinner snacks. This area then becomes a cosy den for diners to retreat with cheese and a digestif after dinner.

The bistro’s airy 120-seat dining room channels old-world Italy with a modern twist. Terrazzo tiles and Italian marble complement charming heritage features.

For the menu, Amano head chef Andrew Hanson and HIPGROUP executive chef Jo Pearson have interpreted Italian cuisine through a distinctly local lens, while celebrating the principles that HIPGROUP have built their business on. HIPGROUP are the first to tell you that Amano is not just a restaurant, but a platform to honour the quality and provenance of food.

The team behind Ortolana, Milse and The Store, Amano follows the same food philosophy: to use seasonal produce (often from the group’s own farm in Kumeu) to create delicious food. A simple goal with devastatingly good results, it means that everything is made fresh and each loaf is handcrafted using just a few key ingredients, harking back to the baking days of old.

From the best breakfast pastries, to the most nourishing lunches, to crudo, oysters and scallops that have been freshly plucked from the ocean and gelato prepared with local ingredients… Amano is a living breathing wonder.

Sister bar to acclaimed Vietnamese restaurant Cafe Hanoi, Xuxu Dumpling Bar is the perfect place to begin or end your night – or settle in for the evening.

Xuxu Dumpling Bar (say “Su-su”) is one of the city’s small gems, a cosy table-service bar just across Commerce Street from its older sibling Cafe Hanoi.

Its whimsical decor carries a whisper of Eastern elegance and old-world romance: rich peacock-design drapes, stained-glass lampshades, bamboo-patterned wallpaper and an intricate turquoise and white wall mosaic.

There are no bar stools or leaners here; just intimate tables where you’re hosted by attentive staff, with the kind of warm but unobtrusive service we know and love from Cafe Hanoi. The open kitchen bustling with staff adds a touch of theatre inside, while the streetside terrace provides a front-row seat to the hum of the Britomart precinct beyond.

Drinks and Dumplings

There’s a moreish list of Asian-inspired cocktails and a small, but thoughtfully created selection of dumplings to please even the pickiest of palates. On the drinks list select wines, boutique beers and spirits have been carefully chosen to complement the food.

With its quirky atmosphere and delicious dumplings, the delightful Xuxu Dumpling Bar is a worthy drink or dinner destination. With a fortnightly changing wine list and new cocktails constantly in the works, it’s a cosy corner spot worth a visit.

The self-styled ‘merchants of freezery’ dish up decadent dairy from a stylish little servery in the Atrium.

Tucked away in the heart of Atrium on Takutai, White’s & Co. is a soft-serve yoghurt store in a league of its own. Open from early morning into the evening every day, White’s & Co. offers healthy, delicious options for dessert, breakfast or a snack.

White’s products are made using the all-natural yoghurt made famous by gourmet dairy brand The Collective. It’s dished up as the freshest soft-serve, as sundaes and in cones, in a choice of four flavours: perennial favourites vanilla, chocolate, berry and mango. As well as their delicious ice-treats, they also serve up a range of hearty porridges and bircher mueslis – the perfect thing to get you going in the morning.

Decadent toppings range from fresh seasonal fruit, nuts and granola to fruit syrups, curds and compotes. Or – if you want to balance out all that yoghurt-eating virtue – fudge, handmade lollies and meringue. Also on offer are fresh yoghurt ‘smoovies’ and parfaits of fruit, yoghurt and granola.

All that makes White’s the perfect place to stop by when you’re in the mood for a sweet treat during hot summer days and nights, or for a quick breakfast or pick-me-up on the go.

The brainchild of good friends Angus Allan (co-founder of The Collective) and Kirk Saunders, White’s & Co. is dedicated to delivering the very best in quality, because in their words, “people deserve yoghurt as yoghurt should be”.

Add to that stellar coffee from one of Auckland’s best roasters – Eighthirty – served on weekdays by one of the sharpest baristas in town, and you have one of the central city’s most innovative new foodie hot spots.

This casual diner and takeaway serves fresh, seasonal meals to eat-in or go, with an in-house artisan bakery producing bread and pastries.

The Store is an eatery of two halves. At one end a chic diner serving casual meals and drinks with attentive table service. At the other a neighbourhood store selling an ever-changing menu of house-made ‘gourmet convenience’ food and superb coffee to take away.

Serving quick nutritious bites from early till late seven days a week, The Store specialises in ‘great takeaway food, fresh pastries and bread’, and for those who wish to dine in, the focus is on ‘quick-fire service for casual tables in the inner courtyard.’

The space also houses a bakery, which supplies The Hip Group’s entire stable of cafes and stores with bread and pastries. Producing artisanal foods 16 hours a day, the bakery is visible to passers-by, in line with the idea that food ‘tastes better when you see someone make it.’

Fresh, local food to eat in or take away

The Store’s European inspired menu mirrors its founders’ farm to fork philosophy, celebrating fresh local produce and incorporating citrus fruit, pears, figs, pecan and macadamia nuts grown at the Hip Group’s own orchard at Kumeu.

The focus is on seasonal ingredients and high quality food: from ‘healthy kickstarts’ such as petite goat’s cheese omelettes and metropolitan mainstays like a great early morning coffee, through to Kiwi classics like takeaway fish ‘n’ chips.

As well as superb meals, The Store proffers a dizzying selection of house-made beverages. Freshly made fruit syrups are served with sparkling water made using soda machines specially imported from Italy, and there is a full menu of juices, smoothies and coffees to drink-in or take away.

‘Old values, new attitude’ is how the team at Smart Sushi sum themselves up – that, and ‘sushi people rave about!’ The to-rave-about sushi is self-evident: spankingly fresh ingredients, scrupulously sourced and prepared in a range of traditional and new styles. The old values, new attitude approach is also clearly discernible, the modern Japanese detailing of the tiny store echoing the ‘new take on traditional cuisine’ values of the food. And while hard work, discipline and passion all customarily underpin the making of great sushi, for Smart Sushi it’s also all about warm, friendly service and the personal touch.

Japanese cooking and catering

As well as an innovative range of fresh sushi, Smart Sushi offers Japanese dishes such as donburi, katsu, tempura and udon noodle soup, prepared hot while you wait. Open seven days a week, Smart Sushi is great for a healthy lunch on the go or for picking up dinner on the way home from work. If you’d rather linger, there are tables in the covered Atrium area. Smart Sushi also offers corporate and private event catering, serving up beautifully presented party packs handcrafted by a master sushi chef.

They may claim fondness for a bit of ‘mammal-straddling malarkey’, but when it comes to great food and coffee, the team at Shaky Isles are deadly serious.

This second outlet of the much-loved cafe has plenty in common with its Kingsland cousin: signature cartoon graphics, offbeat interior design details and large-scale text reminders of why coffee is good for your personality.

The Britomart Shaky Isles, however, has an atmosphere all its own. Occupying the Customs Street East side of Excelsior House and extending into neighbouring Stanbeth House, it’s a large, characterful space that celebrates the layers of the building’s history.

Interesting historic details include the big wooden warehouse doors, ceiling rosettes and original rafters and exposed swathes of brick and plaster – all overlaid with lashings of Shaky Isles attitude.

A light food menu and seriously good coffee

The cafe’s food and drink menus focus on scrumptious dishes and superb coffee. Their breakfast and lunch options feature healthy bites like organic granola or avocado, heirloom tomato, goat’s cheese and tabbouleh on ciabatta plus a large selection of house-made counter food.

Their reputation for making damn fine coffee has been cemented with the introduction of syphon coffee, and the unveiling of a new filter bar serving up single origin coffee on the go.

And being just a hop and a skip from Vector Arena, it’s the perfect location for a pre-show bite. As well as free WiFi, Shaky Isles dishes out regular special offers – keep an eye on the Shaky Isles website for details.
