The Glass Goose

This new inner-city hotspot is set to enhance our dining and nightlife needs.

There’s no shortage of fabulous places to dine in Auckland city’s bustling Federal Street, but with bookings in high demand, we often find ourselves at a standstill when looking for a stylish, lively haunt to grab a few drinks pre-show, or for those nights that escape from underneath us and turn into something more. Housed around the corner on Victoria Street West lies a new enticing establishment that will undoubtedly cater to our pre and post tipple needs – or entice us to install ourselves – while also boasting a menu filled with an array of delicious sharing plates.

Helmed by the team behind infamous nightlife spots including Ponsonby’s Freeman and Grey and Fort Street Union, this destination promises to become the new hotspot for an excellent night out on the town. Exuding a cosmopolitan vibe, its prime location and impressive open rooftop bar is matched by a polished look of blonde wood, steel and an abundance of glass. The menu is also worth a mention, brimming with delectable eats designed to be shared, crafted by esteemed chef Scott Gaskin who’s dabbled in the culinary scenes of Melbourne and Fiji. Featuring generous charcuterie and cheeseboards, along with small bites, medium, and larger plates, some of the standouts include the crumbed pork belly and pancetta, chilli wagyu beef lettuce cups and a tantalising pulled brisket bun with pickles and mustard.

So if you find yourself wondering where your next port of call is when roaming around the inner-city, we suggest you head along to The Glass Goose for a night of revelry amidst the urban high-rises.
