Citizen Q

Citizen Q is a boutique café, restaurant and bar in the heart of Auckland’s CBD arts precinct. 

Unlike any other hospitality venue in Auckland, Citizen Q fuels the art that happens around it. 100% of the profits generated from our kitchen and bar goes toward supporting what happens on the stages at Q Theatre.

"With three stages of its own, Q has a remarkably busy and often exciting programme. And we do love that bar" [Metro Magazine, Best of 2014 Honourable Mention]

"Q Theatre has really nailed the hospo side of going to the theatre - the food is great as is the service and the bar well stocked and attractive. All in all, it's an especially fine way to positively contribute to the complete theatre-going experience" [Theatreview]

"A modern and relaxed environment, perfect during the day for a business lunch, meeting or an informal presentation" [Big Little City]

"We were looking for good tasty food at a reasonable price and had a show to catch after dinner. Citizen Q got a solid 10 for each of these in a fun and friendly environment" [Express]
