There is a massive hype surrounding Tyler Street Garage amongst Aucklanders. This industrial-styled bar and eatery is recognised for their small but satisfying menu, awesome drinks menu and their rooftop area which showcases a panoramic view of the harbour side. Word on the street is that they’ve introduced new mouthwatering burgers! Tyler Street Garage is a social hub for you and your mates to come and chill with to some tunes played by some of Auckland’s best DJ’s. Dylan rates this place a good 10/10.
Dim lights, hip bartenders, an unreal drinks menu, live music, amazing food, exceptional service and a diverse crowd basically sums up the Golden Dawn. There’s also an outdoor area that is always buzzing with music and awkward dancing. This watering hole definitely brings something unique to Ponsonby road and is where Dylan and his black mag crew come to have their meetings while enjoying a few drinks and the good vibes.
Craving dumplings? Head to New Flavour, a small spot located on Dominion road in Mt Eden. They’re renowned for their amazing dumplings that create an explosion of flavour in your mouth after every bite and to make things better, they’re CHEAP. Dylan is a regular here, claiming New Flavour’s dumplings to be the absolute best. Just a heads up, they get pretty busy so make a reservation, just to be on the safe side!
