Located at the base of Queen Street is the recently constructed Commercial Bay Shopping Centre, housing over 120 fashion and beauty retail stores. Commercial Bay also contains the largest food and beverage offering in the country at Harbour Eats, a contemporary dining area filled with casual outlets, bars and restaurants with waterfront views.

The Civic Theatre is a renovated 1920’s movie palace that now hosts live performances, located on the corner of Queen Street and Wellesley Street West.

Just around the corner is the Auckland Town Hall, a prominent civic landmark that has been the centre of the city’s political and cultural life since it opened in 1911. 

Adjacent to the Town Hall in the heart of Auckland, Aotea Square is a popular location for festivals, parades, live music and performing arts.
