Auckland’s best happy hours

Conch Records Kitchen & Bar
115A Ponsonby Rd, Ponsonby
What started life as a record store is now a trendy city-fringe bar and restaurant – Conch is a great first-date spot and crucially, the drinks are cheap between 5-7 weekdays. New specials daily.

Spitting Feathers
16 Wyndham St, central city
It’s $4 Heinekens from midday until 10pm daily here, but on Thursdays, the deals are even better: $6 Absolut vodka and Red Bulls, $5 house wines, $6 ciders and $5 pizzas.

Coco’s Cantina
376 Karangahape Rd, K’Rd District
Sit outside on the gingham-clad tables and soak up some of Karangahape Road’s lively atmosphere. There are $7 coups of prosecco, Sawmill pilsners and house wines from 5-7pm daily and $28 jugs of sangria in the summertime.

The Mexican Café
67 Victoria St West, central city
$5 tap beers, $5 house wines and $9 margaritas from 5-7pm daily, and all within stumbling distance of your halls of residence.

Fort St Union
16 Fort St, Britomart
If you aren’t already sick of Heinekens, they’re $5 a pop here between 4-7pm daily as are house wines. Basic pizzas, $15 each, should take the edge off.
