Missed our fave acts at Going Global cos we had no clue where everything was, three venues and no program. The website said the bar doesn't have two acts going at the same time but it had 3. Next time... the 3 of us will split up and sit in a bar each. We can text each other when something good happens, See More

This bar is the safest bar in auckland. I'm not too good at adulting and i drink too much so most places kick me and out and i end up lost and confused and occasionally in dangerous situations. This let me be myself and when i was too much some angel called me a taxi,and waited with me for it. I wish there were more people like her in the world. Thank you random angel. Bar owner give her a payrise. That is incredible host responsibility xx See More

Discovered this gem last weekend whilst out causing a little trouble with the lads. Pretty gutted they didn't have Heineken on tap but the staff were more than helpful suggesting a few alternatives. W...e ending up just ordering a few cheeky rounds of Jager Bombers (not too sure on the name). Great first date venue. See More

Absolute cluster fuck of a company!! We literally paid $10 to get into an 'event' that went on until 4am...we were told we could leave and come back whenever we like...only to come back at 2am when th...e 'main' dj came on to find the place shutting up for the night! Loads of abuse from the "staff" also!! But apparently this was rented out to a group called haven...not necessarily Whammy bar but I would strongly advise u never go to this shit hole of a place unless u have very low standards and don't mind being taken for an absolute ride and completely ripped off!!!

First time playing here on the weekend. Thought it was going to be a bit shit after battling vocal feedback through most of soundcheck and sweating our faces off but actually had a fantastic night. We...ll looked after and loads of fun, strange Down the Rabbit Hole adventures beneath St Kevin's after hours... Many thanks to all See More

I have spilled many drinks, sung songs, polished the bar with my ass on more than one occasion. Whammy, the magical place where I first met my husband, please never ever close.

Nice beer. It's so awesome that they have open mic nights for their's and Wine cellar's bar staff so regularly (even if it's a bit painful to watch and listen too lol). But good of them to give them an outlet.

To quote the theme song of Cheers, "sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name." Whammy Bar fits the bill. A great place to hang out with friends and watch decent bands.
