If you are ever in need of a cold beer and/or a haircut, Auckland’s The Beer Spot will happily oblige. Tucked away in an industrial-looking garage in Auckland’s northern suburb of Northcote, adorned with comfy mismatched lounge furniture that looks like it came from grandma’s place, The Beer Spot proudly boasts 40 taps with a rotating selection of beer.
Now all this choice might make even the most dedicated beer connoisseurs nervous, but never fear, the knowledgeable and enthusiastic bartenders can help you select the perfect beer(s). If you can’t decide on just one (and let’s be honest, with over 40 beers on offer, how could you ever pick just one?), then the bartender will carefully help you select a tasting paddle of the finest pale ales, lagers, stouts and pilsners on offer.
Auckland’s best-loved food trucks
Fancy a bite? The Beer Spot has also got you covered. In collaboration with some of Auckland’s most popular and best-loved food trucks (Peach’s Hot Chicken, The White Lady and Ramen Takara to name a few), on any given week rotating through, you will be able to savour delicacies such as Peach’s Nashville hot chicken sandwiches, Ramen Takara’s Karaage Chicken or pork buns, or The White Lady’s famous classic Kiwi burgers.
Finally, if after all that food and beer, you feel like sprucing yourself up with a haircut, the onsite barber (perched conveniently just steps away from bar), will happily trim those locks.
Open Sunday to Wednesday, noon to 8pm, and noon to 10pm on Saturdays, you should definitely make The Beer Spot your next local. And for those westies out there with FOMO (fear of missing out), The Beer Spot has you covered, with a second location, conveniently located in Huapai.
