The Basement is Auckland’s culture-defining powerhouse - home to an artistic mixtape of theatre makers, dancers, visual artists, poets, musicians, comedians and everyone in between. We proudly showcase the best new voices and fresh perspectives, with world premieres making up over half of our programme. So come watch sweat drip and spit fly as some of the brightest new talent earn their chops at our place. You can’t download theatre - come get something live.
Basement Theatre is home to the craftiest little bar in the CBD. Charlotte (our Bar Manager) is a serious beer nerd which means we have libations to suit every palate, from the casual imbiber to the serious hophead, and you won't have to part with all you pocket money either.
Beers stocked: Garage Project, Liberty Brewing Company, Brother's Beer, Galbraith's, Laughing Bones, Leigh Sawmill, Parrot Dog, Tuatara, Panhead, Harrington's, Hallertau, Yeastie Boys and many more.
Open Tue - Sat, 5.30pm til late. Join us every Friday 10pm for a live DJ set by a selection of your favourite comedians!
