A one-stop shop for any and all libations, Woof! is welcoming like a pub, comfortable like a diner and also manages to have the late-night appeal of a cocktail lounge.

The staff are friendly and easygoing but very serious when it comes to good food and drinks. As they put it, “Woof! is all about personal service, a welcoming environment and damn fine drinks and kai.” This spot is best known for its cocktails which rotate and change every few weeks. One highlight is the ‘Lagerita,’ a crisp smash up of margarita and lager with Tequila, Cointreau and cut of lime. Woof! does all of the classics beautifully too, making it easy to try something new or stick to an old faithful in a way that’s just as exciting.

Woof! also has all the bases covered if you are a beer drinker. They’ve got Emersons and Garage Project on tap and a long list of specialty cans in the fridge that change over time to keep visitors on their toes. The wine list features a number of New Zealand red, white and sparkling varieties as well as pours from further afield.

But Woof! doesn’t stop there. Their snacks and small meals are all hand crafted on site, with a huge range of diverse flavours that’ll fill you up and complement whatever you’re drinking. While Woof! is first and foremost a bar, plenty of locals come just to eat. Head in for afterworks, a celebration, a snack or for a fun-filled late night.
