21 Hurstmere Rd, Takapuna 0622 Mon – Sun The Gardens: 12pm – Late Takapuna is on the uprise and The Commons fits right in. After an afternoon in the sun or a long day at work this is the place to unwind. Each cocktail made with precision, your only worry here is which to choose! While you can sit inside, the real magic is in ‘The Gardens’ outdoor seating. Vines hang from every corner, a bar is perched in the middle for convenience, it really is very relaxing. If you find yourself peckish, a grazing and dinner menu is available. The food is delicate and tasteful, complimenting the cocktails perfectly.

Amazing food, amazing views of the beach. There's also a live band playing on Sunday which makes it an ideal place for the perfect Sunday chill down before all the madness on Monday! Staff there are super helpful and it's the perfect place either for a nice dinner or catch up drinks.

Always a great hang, sun or shine. Great food, and even better bar staff.

Great for an after work drink. Great food & service. Love the outdoor couches in summer.

Tucked away off Hurstmere Road in Takapuna, The Commons has a great outdoor space to enjoy a beer, wine or a bite to eat. There are several different spaces for you to enjoy - whether you want formal dining or just a coffee. One of the best additions to the Shore in recent years, and a great place to go in the summer.

I ate this dessert so quickly I have no recollection of what its name was . Lets just say it was heavenly. Wonderful staff and a great space 

Great looking bar to bad it’s not in the city I would live here!

Agree :)

Order the sashimi from the bar menu, so amazing. Small on size but so tasty and unlike any sashimi you will eat elsewhere
