'Neck of the Woods Bar' is my favourite bar in Auckland and it is on K RD. Sadly all the cool retail stores have relocated off the strip to other popular locations or have moved online. If you are looking for a coffee or a spot to eat - check out Alleluyah Cafe in the St Kevins arcade; then enjoy... More

Lots of interesting shops and great cafes. Find out for yourself and go for a stroll. It's hard to pronounce the name of this street so locals call it "K Road".

K'Rd is said to be the place to go out in Auckland at nights, bit frankly there is not really much to do. During the day it looks ok, the part from the Queen Street, there are few shops, but nothing speciall. I'd say it's being overrated by the locals.

I went here for a specific shop in St. Kevins Arcade. I went by myself (driving an hour by myself with my four year old!) and when I got there I was a little nervous. "K" street isn't as great as I thought it was going to be - I expected like a Melrose in Los Angeles or something similar.... More

It was sort of run down and grotty without really being edgy. If you are into vintage clothes shops there were a few good looking ones. I was there on an afternoon and I suspect it heats up at night so maybe I am being unfair. Either way, I'm in no hurry to go back.

Went through going to other place. Used to be the centre of fringe society but now it's just dirty, run-down, tired and boring. The fringe have obviously migrated to other places? Don't know why one would go there to be honest, wouldn't waste my time going there if not for the fact that we were on our way to the... More

Went on a Hen's Night party to Encore - a Drag Queen Show - it was great fun. Lots of laughs, photographs, dancing. The meal was buffet, entrees served to table - very tasty. I wasn't expecting anything special but have to say it was very presentable - curry and rice, roast potatoes, salads, a good array of cooked vegetables,... More

We had walked down K street several times going to other areas like Ponsonby. Twice to stop in at the Eagle Bar. K street is kind of on the fringe street with various venues attracting the likes of those who enjoy used clothing, female strippers and gays bars. We did enjoy stopping at the Eagle several nights as it seems... More

Once Auckland's premier shopping area it has mostly escaped redevelopment and is all the better for it. Yes it's a bit shabby but that's part of its charm. Along with an eclectic mix of bars, restaurants, music venues, strip clubs and shops. If you're looking for a high-strung, white, upper middle class go to Ponsonby. If you want to hang... More

The title of my review pretty much says it all. The area was dirty, and the establishments not the kind that generate confidence. Better times are to be had elsewhere.
