Set on the 50th floor of Auckland’s most iconic landmark, SkyBar is taking after-work drinks to a whole new level

Found 182 metres above Auckland, SkyCity’s new bar is destined to become a destination where the panoramic views are just one of many drawcards. With the vision of extending Auckland’s culinary offering, SkyBar, the elevated new opening on level 50 of our iconic Sky Tower, is one of the most exciting new openings for the inner-city precinct. More than just a bar; the luxurious hideaway promises a multi-sensory experience.

SkyBar

Here, the beverage menu has been crafted to reflect the natural elements of Auckland’s geography, taking guests on a journey of discovery through flavour and texture. And, in partnership with Moët & Chandon, SkyBar’s beverage offering is truly unrivalled, with a cocktail menu already gaining notoriety. Consider the Douro Spritz, fizzy and refreshing with a hint of mint, or the Rūamoko Paloma, presenting a Kiwi twist on the classic, marrying chilli tequila with soft sweet red bell pepper, pink grapefruit and edible ashes, or a trio of Kir Royales that see a divine collision of fruit liquor and the bar’s beloved Champagne.

As expected, the culinary element at SkyBar is also exceptional. Days here begin with an array of elegant treats created by the talented master pâtissiers at Sucré by SkyCity, inviting those on their way to work to elevate their morning coffee and croissant run. As the sun sets, the space transforms into an indulgent destination, perfect for discerning diners and those seeking a refined place to enjoy a drink or two. Delicious dishes come in the form of Duck Liver Parfait on Kumara Sourdough and Smoked Green Lipped Mussels with Dill Cream and Chilli, alongside a selection of local cheeses and charcuterie boards — the perfect accompaniment to the selection of tasty tipples on offer here. The sumptuous sweet treats will still be available after dark too.

Alongside these hospitality efforts, which are on offer all day, SkyBar’s piece-de-resistance is its coveted vantage point — where the views are jaw-dropping, and the after-dark backdrop of twinkling city lights is second to none. Officially open today, bookings are available now, and space is filling up fast. We’d recommend securing your table through the link here, STAT.
