Don't be confused by the long name, no one uses it. To the locals it is simply "K Road", an eclectic street that is often thought of as a Red Light district, but is much more than that. The street now stands primarily for cafes, boutiques, galleries and night clubs. It is a place where Auckland's gay community intersects with its straight, and everybody parties together under the same pursuit of happiness theme. This is a 24/7 street and home to many of the city's most creative people. By day, there are great places for a coffee or to check out some shops. As night falls, there are some interesting bars to be had and then when the evening gets really late, there is plenty of dancing and drinking to be had. In addition, there are always cultural groups, artists and others organizing events in the many locations on the street.
