Great live venue. Good sound. Drinks could use some work-expensive/weak. Security a little over the top too.

Old style music venue, a bit old and worn, reminded me of concerts from my younger days, before the huge stadium tours, I absolutely loved every minute, would have no hesitation about doing it again

Along with the more modern Tuning Fork, The Powerstation is my favorite Auckland live music venue. Cosy and intimate.

Courtney barnett was amazing, but this is a review of the venue, which was anything but. What a tired old dump, really needs to be bulldozed. Old and smelly, and so were the staff.

By cancelling the Lauren/Stephan event they either showed themselves to be politically activist or they caved to the mob. Either way, I am unlikely to ever grace their doors in future.

I traveled a long way for a speaking event at the Powerstation for the Powerstation to cancel the gig 2 hours prior to doors open. Extremely unprofessional. Very, very disappointed and a lot of hard earned cash wasted.

This place is a manipulative, political venue place that stops free speech PAYING people from frequenting. I would NEVER EVER frequent this place even if it was free
