Is the Mechanics Bar still outside the port gates?

I have googled in but nothing comes up. There has been lots of redevelopment in Mount Maunganui in recent years so it may have gone. The bit between the Mount itself and where the shops are is mostly high rise apartments now.

Only thing outside the port gates is the police station! No bars there at all- perhaps you mean on Maunganui Road, a short 2min walk away.

There are no bars "out side the port gates" in Salisbury Street

except for the Ocean Sports club over the water by

Salisbury Wharf.

In Rata Street (gates) there is Rosie O'Gradies / Breakers

@ the corner with Maunganui Road

I don't remembera Mechanics Bar outside the gates. Perhaps you mean the Anchor Inn, now Rose OGradies. Anchor Inn was the wharfies bar.

Been a long time since returning but yes it was Rosie O'Gradys. Had a great time and amazed at all the changes, especially where all the batches were and what has replaced them. Can't wait to return again but for longer and hopefully more drier, A great town to chill out and enjoy all the bars etc that are on offer and the great Kiwi welcome you get from all locals and visitors alike.
