Astrolabe Brewbar

Pub in Mt Maunganui

Astrolabe conjures up a funky retro bach (beach-hut) vibe, with floral carpets, bookshelves jammed with old novels, beach umbrellas and battered suitcases. If all that doesn't float your holiday boat, a Mac's Brewery beer might. Failing that, ask for a recommendation from the range of specialty gins and rums. There's even a playground for the kids, and stocks if they misbehave.
