This street needs a really good night club for grown ups that offers good music from the 50's 60's through to the 90's that offers good wine , Cocktails etc in a safe and very cool invironment.

“interesting people”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

I just love the street but for Americans think a low class Westwood :) and for Aussies think an average kings cross.

“Still seedy but the character is missing”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

I know I'll sound old before my time but once K Rd was a really interesting place but while there are still some good cafes around, and Revells and Hallelujah desrve a mention, the character just isn't there any more

“Karangahape Road Vibe”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

K Road, as the locals call it for obvious reasons, is right in the heart of Auckland.
Having lived,worked and played in this area for many years I can truly say that this road is unique to Auckland.
The road runs along a ridge up from the downtown area. It has retained a lot of its old architectural charm.No big retailers here if you are looking for that type of shopping experience. The place is full of retro/secondhand fashion shops,cheap food outlets,late night bars, nightclubs,hostels and art spaces.
This part of town has a certain ruff edge to it. If you are familiar with Brick Lane in London then K Rd is its somewhat less crowded cousin. It attracts a young,street trendy crowd,
artists,musicians,creative types and apartment dwellers. Check it out!
