My experience of Ponsonby this weekend - Went to a private function in COSH BAR, ACE! Would recommend for venue, great views of Auckland CBD at night, central venue, nice staff..
Sadly it all turned to RUBBISH thanks to an ego-tistical bouncer at the LONG ROOM. Went to eet friends, I was told i coulnt come in as i was "too drunk" (I had 4 drinks with water in-between) and was very much sober.... Felt like my face didnt fit - maybe wasnt wearing enough designer gear, or too old... who knows! My partner who was a little tipsy, who slipped a cheeky drink in at another bar before he tried to get back in (as meeting friends) was allowed straight in?... my friend who then left the bar was WASTED...so sober people arent allowed in BT they let there patrons get comatosed (REAL RESPONSIBLE!!) So went into a cute bar called Grand Centre, which was fun for a late night drink - DJ should of been in a Jazz Bar, looked like a real crazy cat! One funny comment though, when a friend asked her for a snake bite he was refused it as it "might make him drunk" um....."we're in a bar!!" but they were quite happy to serve him continious shots of sambuca! ........... RIGHT! There's my vent......

Old world charm, old houses, old pubs, nightclubs and adult entertainment. Cheap food at takeaways and restuarants

Historic setting, friendly staff, good outside sitting area, great food and a comprehensive drinks list! What more can you ask for? PLUS unlike other venues in the rae there is a refreshing lack of attitude from other customers.

Something about ponosnby just makes you feel good. ( but also a little poor!) there are so many incredible cafes, shops and great bars to choose from, and they all have a very 'cool' feel about them

It is interesting building. Standing at the city center Ponsonby. It's a cafe, the food wasn't too bad :)
