Vote now: Toast your favourite spot for a tipple by voting for the best bar in town

A good bar is so much more than somewhere to sink a drink. Along with being experts at crafting the perfect cocktail, curating an impressive wine list and creating a suitably convivial atmosphere, nowadays bars are rivalling restaurants with their food offerings, taking the humble bar snack to tasty new heights. From casual to upmarket, it’s time to celebrate Auckland’s very best bars. Vote for your favourite from our list below, or if there’s an establishment you think we may have overlooked, be sure to add them in the comment box.

Voting has now closed.  The 2021 Denizen Hospo Heroes presented by American Express will be announced in the Winter issue of Denizen magazine (released on 24th May).

Everybody who votes goes in the draw to win one of three $1000 vouchers to be spent at one of American Express’ Dining Collection restaurants.
