Barfoot & Thompson Lounge

Q’s main entrance leads you straight from Queen Street into the Barfoot & Thompson Lounge - a fantastic starting point for a night out in the arts precinct.

A modern & relaxed environment perfect during the day for a business lunch, meeting or an informal presentation. The space transforms at night into a great setting for a corporate social or a private party.

Original 1920s cornices are set-off by rich magenta walls and polished wooden floorboards. The casual leather furnishings provide ample backdrop for socialising and memorable networking occasions. This charming corner of Auckland history is the go-to place if you want to stay late after the show. It is also a great location for office parties, networking events and more formal occasions such as a PR launch.
