The Kings Arms

An Auckland institution: live music venue, heritage pub, affordable eatery

The Kings Arms is a bar, an authentic rock music venue, an affordable eatery and an unpretentious no fuss pub experience with a sun-drenched beer garden smack bang in the centre of town.


The Front Bar

The Front Bar offers a relaxed atmosphere, numerous flat screens showcasing live sport, and plenty of seating to enjoy a drink and a meal with friends. With 2 TAB self-service pods on hand, the Kings Arms is always a top spot to watch and have a punt on the footy or the races.

The Lounge

Home to Auckland’s most celebrated rock and alternative live music venue.  

The Beer Garden

An oasis in the middle of the industrial CBD, the Kings Arms beer garden is one of the best kept secrets during the Auckland summer. Enjoy a drink in the sun and sensational views in what has to be the only true authentic outdoor beer garden in the city.

The Kitchen

The Kings Arms kitchen is only open for dinner on Tuesday night and lunch on Thursdays and Fridays. Chef Rick Downs offers an affordable menu of pub favourites and weekly specials that pair brilliantly with beer or wine.


Where else in Auckland can you still get quarts from the front bar? Grab a quart, share it between two, and enjoy a great selection of tap and bottled beers, from NZ champions to local favourites plus a range of beers from the other side of the world.
