If you are opting for the bars and clubs route, then the following predominantly gay venues can be a bit hit and miss.

However, they are largely tolerant of tranny admirers.

TS/TG/TV Bars, Clubs and Pubs

Most of these venues are situated on the Karangahape Road or K-Road. Known for its eclectic mixture of independently owned stores, thriving cultural scene and trendy cafes, the K-Road is a perfect host for the tranny scene.

Caluzzi Bar and Cabaret

461 Karangahape Rd, Newton, Auckland

Offering drag dinner show entertainment, Caluzzi’s is a popular venue in Auckland, catering mainly for straight dinner guests looking for an alternative evening out.

The club also hosts lots of bucks and hen parties. The venue opens on Friday and Saturday nights from 7pm. Guests should be seated for dinner by 7.45pm when the show starts proper. The meal is served by waitresses in drag and the show closes around 10.30pm when the lights go down and the dancing can begin. Though you won’t find many shemales in the audience, you can always try flirting with the staff and artistes!

Family Bar

270 Karangahape Rd, Auckland, 1010

A gay pub just a short walk from the Caluzzi, Family Bar is a welcoming venue that attracts many shemale visitors. One of Auckland’s oldest gay clubs, Family Bar is open seven days a week from 9am until 4am.

The nightclub runs on Friday and Saturdays opening at 10.30pm and offering karaoke from Wednesday to Saturday in the saloon bar at 10pm. The place can get very crowded at the weekend and all men are fair game so you can expect to get hit on by any male within ass pinching proximity.

The place still maintains a good reputation and appeals to the heyday era of Auckland’s raving past.

Twist Bar and Club

262 Karangahape Rd, Auckland, 1010

Formerly the Legend Bar, Twist is Auckland’s latest gay bar to hit the K-Road scene. Open on Friday and Saturday nights from 9pm to 4am. Featuring caged male go-go dancers, a large bar and smokers area the Twist Club welcomes anyone. Although it is predominantly a gay venue there are plenty of straight guys here who just enjoy the atmosphere, great music and warm welcome. You will undoubtedly find shemales and ladyboys here in amongst the drag hosts and performers.

The Eagle Bar

259 Karangahape Rd, Auckland, 1010

The Eagle Bar offers a more relaxed way to meet and get to know people. A chilled atmosphere with jukebox music and a reputation for wild nights, the venue is open from 4pm every Tuesday to Sunday. The place stays open until 4am at the weekend and attracts a heady mix of gay, straight and trans customers.

Shanghai Lil’s

212 Ponsonby Road, Auckland 1011

Taking a temporary hiatus as it searches for larger premises, keep an eye out for the return of Shanghai Lil’s Piano and Cocktail Bar. It has always been a very camp place and usually attracted some flamboyant characters so we look forward to finding out where its new home will be…

The adverts include photos, bios and services including rates. A very useful and wide-ranging database of shemale escorts in the Auckland area.


Though only offering a couple of dozen adverts, Locanto does have both escorts as well as sexually curious shemales looking for a quick hookup.
