The Birdcage is a heritage listed pub in Victoria Park, Auckland central and has undergone major change over the past few years. It first opened its doors as the Rob Roy Hotel in 1886 and has been serving customers ever since. In the early 2000's in was moved from its original site to make room for a motorway extension and tunnel and now sits directly across the road from Victoria Park on Franklin Road.

This Italian style bar has a great feel to it with wooden floors, open fireplace and chandeliers. It's a fun venue for groups of up to 80 people for lunch or dinner and up to 300 people cocktail style. The V shape design of the building means that smaller groups can have an area to themselves while other patrons dine in the other side. And its proximity to Victoria Park makes this an ideal venue for outdoor, park themed activities followed by a relaxed lunch of dinner.
