“Determinedly seedy”

Reviewed 2 weeks ago

K Road has traditionally been the seedy, louche side of Auckland for decades. I can remember my mum telling how, as a young woman during the War, a policeman approached her on K Rd one night and advised her to leave due to the dangers on K Rd! La plus ca change, la plus le meme chose, I guess! I love K Rd. If you're wanting grubby omniuim gatherum nightclubs then this is the strip for you. If you just want a fun, quirky day out in an Auckland with a point of difference, then this is also the place for you. There is everything quirky and odd ball you could possibly think of, with lots of amazing eateries of every style and price point. It's also a good hub for retro and vintage shopping.
It's really easy to get to from Auckland Centra. because it's on the red circle bus line which doesa city loop and costs a dollar. Bargain!

The next level of feeling naughty. Went for a walk last night. OMG so open minded. From strip club, sex club, adults toy shop, Gay pubs, restaurants, cafe, and many many shops thet can't be named. However it is an exciting night life experience for Saturday night, best is going with a friends or maybe a team. Don't feel safe on my own, more my personal opinion.

I googled 'red light district in Auckland' and 'K'Road' showed up. I walked along K'Road in the broad day light and there were lots of small grocery shops, eateries and cafes. Recommended to check it out.

Visited K-Road a couple times, great shops for the day time and few great restaurants and bars for the night. Night little strip with a bit of everything.
