Loved the hipster, artistic atmosphere

Much of Auckland and New Zealand is pretty and classy. So it comes as no surprise that K Road tends to disappoint some people, because it is...a little different. It has a unique... read more

Bit dirty, run down and tired looking. There are other more interesting shopping streets such as Ponsonby.

Much of Auckland and New Zealand is pretty and classy. So it comes as no surprise that K Road tends to disappoint some people, because it is...a little different. It has a unique hipster feel to it with art galleries, arcades, tattoo shops, vintage clothing stores and offbeat cafes. K Road is a bustling street that looks and feels real... More

'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
