Karangahape Road—known as K Road—is lined with retro shops, vibrant nightlife and cheap ethnic eats, and connects the commercial heart of the CBD (Central Business District) with more upscale and hip Ponsonby. During the day, shop for vintage clothing, browse art galleries or get lost in a bookshop. At night, K Road takes on a bit more of an edge with cabaret clubs, live music venues and LGBT bars open until late. Take a walking tour to learn more about the history and unique culture of the strip.
