This July, Aotea Square will come alive as the hub for Tāmaki Makaurau’s sizzling new winter festival, Elemental AKL. The beating heart of Elemental AKL, the Aotea Square Elemental Hub will be alight with entertainment, food and unique interactive experiences all month long.
Take a spin on the Aotea Square Ice Rink and Ice Slide and experience the magic of your very own winter playground. Enjoy an exciting variety of special events including DJ nights, themed parties, skating lessons and much more.
When it’s time to get toasty again, Box in the Square Bar & Café will be just next door with tasty morsels, a range of hot and cold beverages including craft beers and mulled wine. Grab a table in the new covered courtyard, enjoy a live band and soak up the atmosphere of the Square.
The Auckland Live Digital Stage will preside over the Square with interactive activities for the young (and young-at-heart) throughout the day and exciting content and stories from across the Auckland region throughout the evening.
Auckland Night Markets join the festivities every night, immersing festival goers with delicious selection of cuisines from all over the world.
For the hottest private dining experience in town book one of our cosy winter Snugs. These geodesic domes will be kitted out with comfy furniture, blankets and heaters and are the perfect spot for sharing an intimate winter treat.
For larger groups, each evening our inflatable Snow Dome will transform into a unique function space, perfect for cocktails or sit-down dining for up to 30 people.
Open until late everyday from 1-28 July, the Elemental Hub is the ideal spot to sample the best of what Auckland has to offer this winter. For more details and booking information, check out aucklandlive.co.nz from Friday 31 May.
