We enjoyed staying at The Hilton Auckland and loved the decor of the entire hotel including the Belini Bar. The first night we were there I was exhausted from a long travel day. After a very hot soak in our suite's tub, I fell asleep and did not want dinner. So my husband took himself down to the bar and enjoyed a few glasses of wine and what he described as very tasty and satisfying small plates or bar food. The bar tender took good care of him. He enjoyed talking to other business travelers sitting at the bar and insisted we go back the next night for drinks before meeting friends for dinner. The bar tender remembered him by name and the type of wine he might be ordering. I sampled one of his specialty Martinis and we could have stayed there for more appetizers and drinks. I am sure this "bar scene" is not for everyone, but we really enjoyed the ambience and felt very welcome. We found the entire hotel comfortable with incredible harbor views and the staff very accommodating. Great place to call home when in Auckland.

Great location on the wharf, modern decor, the service is friendly and helpful. And the mixologist is creating martinis and drinks that are world class.

My partner and I celebrated our New Year Eve at the Bellini Bar; it has a nice lougne setting near the pier where we could enjoy the fireworks. It is always crowded in the city as we decided to go to Bellini where we could find a carpark and escape from the main crowded areas.

The cocktails were very nice. I'd like to reccommend this bar for people who love to chill out and enjoy nice drinks, unfortunately, I would not go there for a dance. However, there are so many nightclubs around the area, where you could go afterwards.

Too light....felt a bit sterile, but the service was prompt. Prefer a warmer decor. The views are great though - right over the harbor.
