[By foot] We are easy walking distance from Karangahape Road and Upper Queen Street.

[By bus] Symonds Street and all its bus stops are just a couple of blocks up the hill.

[By train] It is about a 20 minute walk to the closest train station at Mt Eden.

[By car] If you are driving in from Symonds St end, head down Newton Rd and turn right on France St (just after the Shell petrol station). If you are driving in from the Ponsonby/K’Rd end, turn left into France St just after the Speedy Signs store.

[Parking] We do have a customer car park, in addition to plenty of on street parking. If you've had more to drink than you had planned on, you are welcome to leave your car in the car park overnight. We would much prefer you didn't drink and drive! Just let the bar manager know your registration number, so you won't get towed away in the morning.
