The Cassette Number Nine Bar & Restaurant, Auckland CBD
Wandering around central Auckland, we chanced upon a retro themed bar, with the rather 70s name of Cassette. Apparently the business is new, but the furnishings and feel hark back to rock. We did not see any live gig that afternoon, but just had a kind of pub lunch there, and this was heavily skewed towards Italian pasta and pizzas. Outside is Vulcan Lane (picture above) , with its rather small but unique range of retail outlets, with hints of Melbournish charm and English roots.
