Valentine’s Day is like herpes: just when you think its gone for good, it rears its ugly head once more. No wonder some people prefer to call it VD. Yes, it’s that special time of year when chocolate manufacturers and greetings card companies encourage you to demonstrate the extent of your fondness in cold, hard, cash (or the satin-covered equivalent) on February 14th. Screw that. This year, celebrate or commiserate by being a part of our anti-valentines day. Stick two fingers (or one, if you’re that way culturally inclined) at any organisation with a vested interest which prescribes how and when to show your feelings. This year, don’t say it with flowers, come and join in with the other like-minded souls, bring your mother, bring your brother, just don’t bring your lover!


We can’t believe we’re turning 5 this year! Come and join the second of our celebrations at The Lumsden Freehouse, we’ll be serving the nostalgic party food of your childhood, Birthday cake and of course an awesome line up of NORTH END BEER!




Many things have changed about the bar that is located at the corner of Khyber Pass and Broadway over the past 11 years from being a cowboy themed saloon bar to being one of the first Freehouses and pioneers of the Auckland craft beer scene. One thing that has not changed is our commitment to hosting the biggest and best Superbowl Party in town. Join us on Mon 5th Feb for all the action on the big screens and all our annual traditions including Superbowl Squares, the legendary INSANE wings challenge, Great american craft brews…. and Budweiser alongside Burgers, Wings, Nacho’s and Pizza’s.
