Trends / LGBTQIA+

Auckland is a wonderful place for LGBT couples and singles to explore, though there might not be as many spots to hit as a place like Sydney. You can still have a great time here and get by on a cheaper budget, so it’s certainly worth a trip.


For places to stay while here check out the gay-friendly Langham Hotel. It’s a little on the pricey side, but it’s luxurious and within walking distance to a lot of great amenities and attractions. For lunch and dinner, you might want to give SPQR a try. You’ll normally find a pretty mixed crowd of gay and straight couples dining on delicious Italian and it’s a good place to hang out and chat with locals about the scene.


At night, there are a few good options to choose from whether you’re looking to party or have a relaxing night out with your mate. Twist is a popular spot for those looking to dance; the floors are teeming with go-go boys and electronic dance music. Meanwhile, The Eagle Bar is a more relaxing joint where you can chat with friends and choose your own music on the jukebox. If you’re looking for a great drag show, check out The Family Bar & Saloon.


Auckland is an open and friendly city for the LGBT community and the locals are happy to make you feel at home. Few places on Earth make you feel as welcome as New Zealand, so don’t be afraid to book your next holiday here.
