From the hot pool to Ponsonby Rd Lounge Bar... another of New Zealand's great journeys. Taking pride and place in geothermal Rotorua, this eatery is all about pampering and good times!

Pick any night of the week, and there's bound to be something hip hop happening at this funky joint. Unforgettable nights begin in their oh-so-schmoozy bar lined with velvet armchairs, seductive drapes and glamorous chandeliers. Move into their bistro-style dining room, where, come sundown, the air hums with activity, laughter and a hint of party potential...

Their Mediterranean menu never fails to get people in a jovial mood. Pizzas come loaded with anything from smoked salmon and capers to buttermilk fried chicken, fennel sausage and zingy feta cheese. Add to that a range of fresh pasta dishes, moreish sharing plates and some vibrant salads and you have summer in a can!

And speaking of cans, at Ponsonby Rd they're shaken, stirred, spun, swooshed and swung! That's to say they make some of the best cocktails in town. Keep summer going with the eternally sunny Pina Colada, keep it Kiwi with an irresistible TimTam (that also doubles brilliantly as a dessert) or dye your tongue bright blue with a shameless Blue Lake. It's so big you could swim in it...
