The place for live music and DJs...
Napier's s most civilised bar by a long shot, the Med’s warm terracotta tones, tiling and mosaic make for atmosphere plus...
Roosters produces a range of naturally brewed beers ‘made with passion and a great disregard of sensible accounting practices’...
Sunset Point Sports Bar & Bistro is the (only) place in town to grab a beer and meet the locals. Pool table, darts, (fresh) fish and chips, a quality garden bar and surprisingly tuneful live music most weekends.
Not only the city’s largest venue for the likes of concerts, dance and drama, but also one of the world’s few working art-deco theatres. Worth going for the foyer lighting alone. Box office on-site.
This legendary music venue of the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s died in 1997, but thanks to some forward-thinking, toe-tapping folk, it’s risen from the grave to save the day for Napier's gig lovers.
This lofty timber space pulls a mixed crowd of young ’uns up to high jinks, especially on the weekends when the queue can stretch well down the road. Also offers pub-style meals.
Surrounded by orchards, these folk offer a large range of craft beers and ciders, all brewed on-site, plus a great-value $15 tasting tray and tummy-filling food.
A carpeted, dark-wood, British-style boozer complete with a few British brews on tap and hearty pub grub (mains $14 to $26). Occasional live music on Saturday nights.
Part of the Masonic megaplex, Rosie’s predictable Irishness fills in the gaps between dimly lit corners, pints of Guinness and intermittent live music.
Part of the Hawke’s Bay Museum complex, this cinema screens art-house and international films and hosts plays and classical concerts.
Poker machines compromise the vibe at this Irish bar, but the beer’s cold and the outdoor deck is a brazen spot to get through a few.
