Traditionally the place for Auckland Jazz. A lot of the regulars are discerning listeners of Jazz or discerning drinkers of beers (there are 100 beers to choose from).
Call before you go to see who is playing. Jazz on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Also the venue of the Auckland Secondary Schools Jazz Competition which is worth checking out.
Directions: Getting there is easy. Corner of Queen and Wellesly Streets. It's a green building next to Smith and Caughgeys, with 'London Bar' written in large brass letters accross the top.
Parking however wll be difficult. You can try Princes street (Auckland Uni) or Kitchner Street.
