Situated in Victoria Park Market, one of Auckland’s most historic and treasured landmarks, The Oakroom is a new bar in an old part of town.

The Oakroom formerly a stable in the 1800’s, has been carefully crafted in order to maintain a contemporary feel and enhance its natural and historic features. The architecturally designed fit out includes a stunning combination of solid oak, natural brick and soft lighting.

We can assure you, the horses have been relocated and the view of the park from an elevated outdoor deck is second to none.

What Our Customers Say

I am old enough to remember the US TV comedy Cheers.  Walking into The Oakroom, and being warmly welcomed by name from Corey and Rohini, sitting and waiting for your favourite drink to arrive gives me a great sense of belonging. Christmas presents are given, birthday cakes are offered, and genuine warmth and affection provided. Visiting The Oakroom is a delight, something that I look forward to, and while there is a lot of venues to choose from in Freemans Bay, I won’t be changing anytime soon!! – Mike Moore, Telecom

My boss got married on 1st of December and had his reception at The Oakroom. The venue was so fantastic that I decided to host our companies Christmas party there too. The whole night was truly enjoyable. The staff were fantastic, friendly and very helpful. The food was so yum and the venue as a whole worked perfectly for what we wanted, with both a spacious deck and great indoor area. We really enjoyed our event there and will be going back! – Bianca Bettini, MPD Group

Hi there Rohini, I just wanted to extend our very sincere thanks for the fabulous service provided by you and your team last night. Our clients all had a great time and loved the friendly atmosphere of your venue. We loved how you and you team got into the fun of our rabbit drink selection as well! Thanks so much and hope to see you again soon. – Tricia, Orange Box

We held our 2013 Staff Christmas event at The Oakroom and it was a huge success.  The staff are friendly, professional, and experienced which made organising the event stress free and the actual night extremely enjoyable.  They were very accommodating with our limited budget and through experience were able to offer an event package which was perfect for our evening.  Our staff thought the venue was fantastic and the food exceptional.  Thank you for providing a fabulous end to our 2013 year. – Christy Weightma, Cisco

Roll on Friday! It’s our local for after work drinks in the sun. Fantastic atmosphere, fabulous hosts and a great wine and food selection. It’s something the team looks forward to. Wouldn’t go anywhere else! – Richard Blake, NZ Capital Group Ltd

You made our Xmas party delightful with fantastic service and food which everything was perfect and all my staff very impressed. A perfect luncheon to end our year. Thanks Rohini, we will be back. – Mike Watson, Pukekohe Decorators & Doorfinishers Ltd

We have visited The Oakroom several times now, and find it to be a great place for a catch-up over a few drinks. The décor is a stylish heritage setting with original brickwork and lots of Oak wood.  There is a balcony which is a lovely spot when the sun is shining.  Every time we go we consistently receive great service from the friendly staff, and it’s good to see an establishment that keeps the music to a level that’s comfortable for everyone.  The menu offers a good variety of food, and an exceptional range of great wines, which the staff are very knowledgeable about. – Helen Moore, Datacom
