Auckland’s Sky Tower Unveils New Zealand’s Highest Bar

New Zealand is celebrated for a lot of things. There’s the national sport of rugby union and the dominant All Blacks team; stunning fjords with picturesque landscapes naturally crafted by glaciers formed a millennia ago; and the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Peter Jackson’s adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s much-loved fantasy books, which was filmed there.

The country is also known for great food and drink. There’s the national dish, Pavlova, and the unofficial national drink, coffee. Auckland hosts a festival devoted to espresso lovers every year. The annual Chocolate & Coffee Festival invites people to indulge in sweet treats and caffeine every September.

A one-stop venue for entertainment and leisure

Now, New Zealand can even lay claim to one of the world’s highest bars. Auckland locals and tourists can enjoy fine dining and a relaxing drink with majestic views of the city from SkyBar, which sits 182 meters high and offers full 360-degree views of the urban landscape below. In keeping with the nation’s preference for dessert, the bar also offers delicious patisserie from the internationally renowned SUCRE.

The introduction of SkyBar adds another attraction to Auckland’s popular SkyCity. It’s one of the top destinations to visit for tourists with its array of entertainment, dining, and leisure. From white knuckle experiences like the 192-meter-high bungee jump off Sky Tower’s top floor and the “Sky Walk” in which you navigate an outdoor platform for a bird’s eye view from the clouds, to the huge casino which boasts over 2,100 gaming machines and 150 table games, SkyCity has no dearth of entertainment options.

Even if you’re new to slots and casino favorites such as poker, baccarat, and roulette, the abundance of great online platforms offers an opportunity to get acquainted before a visit. Indeed, players in New Zealand can check out slots games with Jackpot City free spins where new customers get a welcome bonus when they initially sign up. There are also table games to play including live roulette which mimics the physical casino environment.

Consistent enhancements to the entertainment complex

Visitors can also stay within the mega complex at SkyCity Hotel which offers four-star accommodation. Opened in 1996, it has become one of the busiest in the city. Across 323 rooms, which were fully refurbished in 2013, it largely hosts business guests and those visiting the casino.

The hotel’s popularity also comes from the wide selection of restaurants on site. Huami, a finalist in the 2021 Metro Restaurant of the Year, offers some of the best Chinese food in the city, for example. There’s also award-winning cuisine from India, Japan, and France, as well as New Zealand chef and TV personality Al Brown’s oyster bar, Depot.

As well as witnessing thrill-seekers heading to the top of Sky Tower, SkyCity also hosts interactive experiences devoted to the special effects of Lord of the Rings through its Weta Workshop, as well as an immersive, fully guided, state-of-the-art exhibition celebrating the national rugby team. Now complemented by the new 182-meter-high SkyBar, SkyCity’s entertainment complex has now, it would seem, got even better.
