Who doesn´t love a good bargain?

We all love a cheap and cheerful night out. But do you wake up most mornings after a night out and fear checking your online banking? Yep, Auckland is expensive and it can be difficult to locate a decent bar that offers the best bevvies and meals on a budget. Consequently, Secret have tracked down some of the cheapest bars for a good cocktail, beer and other specials to delight in. Here are five of our favourites.

1. Little Easy

This charming joint offers some incredible daily deals such as $20 pizza and beers on Tuesdays and $5 happy hour every Tuesday to Sunday, from 3pm – 6pm. Opt to indulge in tasty tacos, jaw-dropping burgers and much more from the food menu. It is the perfect spot for a catch up with your mates.

2. The Mexican Café

This iconic spot serves scrumptious Mexican food and some signature cocktails. Go at happy hour between 5pm and 7pm daily to take advantage of the greatest drink deals such as margaritas, house wines and beers. Excitingly, some platters prices are slashed during this time too. Who could say no to a strawberry margarita paired with some devilish nachos?
