Perhaps the most energetic slashie in New Zealand right now, Dan Aux manages to work as a DJ, producer, musician and radio jock all at once. Here are his favourite places in Ponsonby.
Best thing about Ponsonby is:
It's the sunny side of Auckland City and home to George FM. An eclectic mix of young professionals, creative types and botoxed housewives.
Top 3 things to do:
1. Get a tattoo from Two Hands
2. Long lunch with friends at SPQR
3. The craziness that is the Chapel Bar on Sundays.
Best free thing to do:
People watching from the bosses office window.
Favourite place for a bite:
Little 107 Café Two Poached eggs and spinach is my daily breakfast! Love it.
Best shopping or best store:
Texas Radio for the G-Star Denim Jeans, Roasted Addiqtion Coffee and Dimpster's awesome service.
Most over-rated place:
Three Lamps have you seen them? Not that interesting.
What's Ponsonby's best kept secret?
Jonny from Il Buco Pizza's secret ingredient is..? Yum!
Don't leave Ponsonby without experiencing…
The Whiskey Bar is a great place to rub shoulders / share a drink with any number of famous kiwi musicians at 2am on any given night of the week if you are lucky.
