About The Kingslander
The Kingslander is a game day institution for Aucklanders and visitors going to events at Eden Park. It is the ideal meeting place before the game for a beer and a meal and then celebration or commiseration parties after the game with bands and DJ’s playing into the small hours of the next day.
The Kingslander is the local pub in Kingsland where you can shoot a game of pool or darts, watch all the TV sports events on its 3 large projector screens and 6 wide screen TVs or see some of the best live talent in the local music scene.
Upstairs is Nectar, a multipurpose function bar with an exposed rooftop garden. Many an Aucklander has celebrated their 21st, 30th or anniversary with their friends in this character bar.
The heritage building was originally the local grain & forage store, providing feed for the cities transport system then known as horses. Later it became an engineering workshop until 2004 when owners Steve Gillett & Gary Braid came along and saw the potential for a hospitality venue.
Awesome venue full of character. Perfect size for our wedding of 100 and perfect layout for the band. The subdued evening atmosphere with candles and lit up bar look amazing. The platters of food going around worked great and everyone commented on what a neat venue it was. So thanks Steve and Darren - you guys were awesome.
This is our third year at your rooftop venue and works exceptionally well for our group of 150 pax. Food is always great and environment just perfect - we will be back!. Easy Peasy!!
Open stage music a bit to loud. Makes it hard to communicate with friends
WOW What an amazing bunch of Staff. SERVICE: They were on point in all areas. Bar staff communicated well. They were polite. Efficient in their clean up and easy to deal with. Always checking up on me. FOOD: We ordered Canapes and Spit Menu. Such a Delicious Selection of Dishes, Salad were fresh. Buns were Soft on the inside and Crispy on the outside. So yum. Everyone raved about the Canapes. BAR: Lovely Selection of drinks and Yummy Bubbles Station on Arrival was perfect. MANAGEMENT: Very easy to deal with and Darren was such a Breeze to deal with. He suggested good menu options. Met with us to view the place and even dealt with my constant emails. Thanks for keeping me stress free throughout the whole process. OVERALL: If you want to host a lovely event with good food, lovely bar staff, easy to deal with management then this is the place to be. THANK YOU SO MUCH DARREN AND THE TEAM. Money well spent with great value.
Food was very nice but a bit slow (could due to the weekend,waitress did inform us ahead)... good value for the money
Darren was extremely helpful with the booking of our function and very accommodating with our requirements.
Great staff and venue! Thanks so much Darren, Georgina, Luis & Andy for being friendly and helpful. Looking forward to my next Tango Sunday event at The Nectar Bar , 24 March & the fourth Sunday of each month 💃🕺
Friendly staff members were always available to help. Our party was at this new renovated Nectar bar, love the outdoor and indoor flow and the lighting set up. Perfect for party venue hire. My party at the nector bar turned out to be so amazing. Everyone was impressed with the look of the venue and said they had a great night. I’d highly recommend the kingslander and the nector bar to others.
Overall the pub was good, we came for dinner before the Melbourne Victory vs Wellington Phoenix game. However was extremely dissapointented when we ordered drinks to find out that the happy hour which you have published on your website was not actually available. It was one of the reasons I had booked a table. It ways soloist and free nibbles/happy hour 4-6pm we got there at 5pm. You should remove things from your website if they are not accurate, as it is miss representation and also false advertising.
My group and I were not impressed with the $20 Summer BBQ Platter. Not what we were expecting.. we felt very mislead by the pictures and "BBQ" statement on Facebook. Only the sausages were grilled. The steak was very very rare, we weren't even asked how we wanted our steak cooked. The ribs looked and tasted like they were boiled then chucked under the oven. Wouldn't recommend this place to non smokers. The whole place (even inside) smelt like smoke as soon as the bar filled up.
The place is well laid out, the bar staff are attentive and friendly. Plates and glasses are cleared promptly and there are enough screens to keep everyone happy without blocking views. Great place for a game or for a night out
