Dreaming of taking your time in Parnell during this endless summer? Experience wide open spaces, small boutique and personal shopping experiences, easy parking and zero ‘energy clutter’—whether that be the hustle and bustle of a mall you hope to avoid, or a hectic hospitality spot that offers everything but the chance for you to relax.
Parnell is the space to be for an intimate, breathe-easy, personal moment.
Start your ‘Parnell perfect’ with a leisurely coffee on the sidewalk and take in your favourite exhibition at a few of Auckland’s favourite art galleries, close in proximity to each other but each offering a unique experience.
If you’re after fashion, browse the conservative boutiques in ‘old Parnell’, the various pop ups that appear from time to time, the established bridal offerings, or the new designers in Faraday street. Parnell has an eclectic fashion offering, where one size definitely does not fit all; it’s more personal than that.
End your experience at one of Auckland’s hottest hospitality spots. Whether outside in a quaint courtyard, on a footpath ‘European style’ where you can peruse passers-by at your own pace, the choice is yours, as is the flavour. Enjoy some of the best restaurants in Auckland in Parnell—award-winning Pasture, much loved Cibo, Gerome, Barulho and Non Solo Pizza. Parnell is where you come to dine locally for your favourite international flavours. Don’t forget—if it’s just a tipple you’re after, whether casual or for a special occasion, the bars in Parnell have got you covered.
Why rush this time of year? Enjoy the endless days before they turn into cooler, shorter ones. Your day can start with brunch for a long morning of relax and replenish, or in the early afternoon leading you into a memorable evening out.
There is nowhere else in Auckland where the intimate spaces are both hidden and private, open and honest or that provide you with the space to… breathe.
