The most elevated bar in the Viaduct has sweeping harbour views and an elegant, charming atmosphere that's not to be missed. Snapdragon includes three bars and a dining room that serve a variety of delicious cocktails, wines from their world-class list and food from their bar menu and from the kitchen.

The ground floor dining room serves a contemporary bistro menu from its 45 seats, with a further 14 seated at the banquet table. The Lobby Bar on the ground floor is the perfect corner for a rendezvous, with casual dining. Big bi-folding doors open out to informal, all weather outdoor lounge areas. On the next level above, the Sitting Room is the most elevated bar in the Viaduct, serving up cocktails and views second-to-none alike.

The vibes are reminiscent of a 1930s vintage glamour mixed with West Hollywood lounge right on Auckland's waterfront, Snapdragon is for sure one of the gems in the crown of the Viaduct. The Games Room and Sitting Room Lounge are available for private hire, and make the perfect, unique setting for any party or function.

Nice outside and inside area, drinks at reasonable price, also nightclub/dinner! Great place to hangout with your girlfriends #fun

Friendly staff, yummy wine, amazing view on the harbour with stunning sunset, cool decoration and secret room behind the library. Great place to chill with a glass of wine and some curly fries!


The best music absolutely love going here!! its always pumping it is a great location and the venue is so beautiful.. Its such a mean place to pparty :P

Love the setting of snapdragon. So awesome to be able to look out to the beautiful viaduct, while eating amazing food, and drinking good wine. Love coming here with my husband, great after work spot!

Two levels, good for a dance, but quite nice to have a cocktail in the sun

I love its location in the Viaduct, the amazing Auckland Restaurant Month special it had a few months back, and the wicked cool vibe.

Perfect for those long, hot summer nights and a great place to start a night out, Snapdragon has loads of room for big groups as well as imbibing a deux. The cocktail list in long and interesting and the bar staff always great you with a smile, no matter how lengthy your order!

This bar has THE BEST nibbles! Delicious options for sharing, fresh ingredients and creative combos. The interior is really well curated, with a big cool wall panel of vinyl records and a big book shelf (which revolves!!) - very cool. Plus a beautiful view of the yachts if you sit on the balcony.
