19 Jun The A-List: Whats On Auckland
Whether its wine, dine, or tapping your feet, The A-List has you covered this weekend.
Friday Nights at Sweatshop Brew and Kitchen
If live music is your thing, Sweatshop Brew and Kitchen (formerly Sale St) is the place to be on a Friday night. Live band ‘The Beat Council’ regularly get the crowd going from 10pm onwards. Get there early and have a glass of wine on the gorgeous fairylit deck overlooking the Skytower, and head inside for a dance when the music takes your fancy. The menu has just been refreshed too, and the pulled pork sandwich is not to be missed.
Guess who’s back.. Fed Deli
Al Brown is the genuis behind Best Ugly Bagels and The Depot, and he struck gold once again with American inspired diner Federal Delicatessen. The incredibly popular diner was left badly damaged after a fire in April this year leaving many punters disheartened, however it’s booths are now open once again! Gather the troops and head over to Federal St this weekend for a large helping of Salmon Latkes, Street Dogs, Montreal Poutine and our personal favourite the Banana Toffee Pie with Caramel Popcorn ahh.
Once you are wined and dined, head down to the Civic for the explosive production direct from Havana, Ballet Revolución. Trained at the prestigious Escuela Nacional de Arte, the dancers blend contemporary with Cuban music for a show full of life. You may even find yourself singing along, the soundtrack is rumoured to feature Sia, Lorde, Beyonce and Rihanna. Sold out in Singapore, Berlin, Vienna and London the show is incredibly popular and suitable for all ages. Tickets are available through TicketMaster.
Oh La La
Paris is always a good idea right? When Paris isn’t an option, you can’t go wrong with La Cigale voted Metro’s Top Markets 7 years in a row. The market houses the city’s finest selection of french cheeses, olives, pastries, breads and boutique juicers and is the perfect place to spend a lazy Sunday morning. Nibble on the samples on offer or grab a coffee and croissant from the cafe inside.
