Right now, these are two hip new spots that should be on your radar in Auckland.
• City Works Depot: This is the newest little precinct in the city. It’s about a 15 minute walk from the main street, Queen Street, in what’s known as the Victoria Quarter. Here you can snack at some cool eateries (for a cheap and delicious feed you can’t beat a TAB from Best Ugly Bagels), enjoy a tipple at the hip warehouse watering hole, Brothers Brewery, or get a chic blow wave and a herbal tea at one of Auckland best beauty bars, Dry & Tea.
• Ponsonby Central: This little hub on the corner of Ponsonby Road and Richmond Road is a dynamic space of food, fashion and homewears. The pizza place out the back, Dantes, serves the best slices I’ve had in this city (Con Prosciutto is my pick) and the juice bar will soothe the pain of an over-indulgent meal. There's also Spanish, Japanese, Asian and Argentinian options. There are always new things popping up around this neck of the woods, so stay tuned.
