We ended up here when the other bar we planned to go to was closed. It is quite a nice place with plants surrounding the tables. The addition of astroturf made it feel garden like. The place wasn't too loud so we could have conversations and we were able to people watch across Aotea Square.
The toilets were located inside Aotea center and the bar did close quite early (around 20:00).

We had drinks at the Box cafe while waiting for the event at the nearby Aotea square to begin. Very nice light setup with wide sofa type seating, regular tables, and barstools as well . Good selection of beers and drinks. Box would be a perfect meeting point.

Popped in for a pre-dinner snack before the theatre. It's a perfect setting, overlooking Aotea Square and has a great atmosphere. The service was excellent BUT the pizza was the worst I'd ever eaten. It was only warm and as far as I could see contained only pizza base, tomato and cheese, and was limp and soggy. The salad was ok. This is not a restaurant, but this 'food' should not have been served.

We stopped in for a snack while waiting on the bus. The young lady working was very nice and the coffees were super.

I love the ambience & décor of this café. Great seating, patio heaters for winter days. But please get a new barista or coffee beans - the coffee is really not that good!
