Pints are pouring and cocktails are being sipped on Auckland's waterfront.

Hospitality businesses dusted off tables and opened their doors this morning after 107 days in lockdown.

Venues have a 100 person cap under the Red Traffic Light Setting and patrons have to show their My Vaccine Pass.

HeadQuarters bar owner Leo Molloy told Heather du Plessis-Allan it's a vibe on the Viaduct.

“Oh, you’d not believe how good it is out there. You just would not believe it. In your wildest expectations, there’s gotta be about 3, 4, 500 people here.”
