Offering an incredible view across the waters of Viaduct Harbour, this rooftop bar (and bowling alley) has been a summertime favourite since it opened. Pick a scenic spot on the deck and enjoy the sunset with a crisp Dr Rudi’s brew in hand.
Parasol & Swing
Another Viaduct Harbour spot that promises to have you soaking up every minute of the golden hour. Indulge in one of Parasol & Swing’s signature cocktails, like the Tiki-Birds of Paradise, and you’ll be setting yourself up for a perfect evening.
Sunset can be enjoyed from places other than just a rooftop. Herne Bay’s favourite restaurant, Andiamo is perfectly positioned to soak up the last few moments of sun as it kisses the horizon, bathing its outdoor tables in a warm pink and golden glow.
Soul Bar & Bistro
If looking out onto the sun-speckled water isn’t blissful enough, Soul Bar & Bistro elevates the fantasy further with its (now iconic) ceiling of beautiful blooming florals. This waterfront institution is sublime and makes for an idyllic date-night spot.
As the highest rooftop bar in Auckland, The Churchill offers unparalleled views across the Auckland City skyline and is a luxurious place to park up for a sunset tipple. With its vast selection of Champagne and gin, this is an elevated experience in more ways than one.
