There comes a time when your ‘doof doof’, tequila shot, drop-it-low days are done, and you’d rather spend your evenings elsewhere. That elsewhere should be Ponsonby’s Golden Dawn. Smack bang in central Ponsonby (literally, it’s opposite Ponsonby Central), the Golden Dawn bar is all about bringing likeminded, quirky people together over yum food, craft cocktails, underground music, and good vibes. Bring your best banter, and leave your 18-year-old partying habits at home. Look out for the green door.
