Night Life on a Whole New Level

Auckland’s Top Night Club

Impala is located at 7 Shortland St, Corner High St & Shortland St, Auckland City, in the basement of the old Southern Insurance building in the heart of Auckland CBD. Echoes of the building’s stately history shine in the women’s bathroom with a steel safe door firmly attached to the wall, and a curl of small steps rising up from the basement to ground level.

Impala is the baby of Red Rum Touring international event promoters Daniel Farley and Reuben Rivers-Smith, Who have brought hugely popular DJ acts to Kiwi shores, with the prestigious list including Kiwi favourite Wilkinson, as well as Los Angeles native Dillon Francis, Chicago’s Flosstradamus and Sydney‘s What So Not. This year they added Excision (from Canada), Getter, Sweden’s Brohug, France’s Habstrakt, and Slumberjack all the way from Australia to their repertoire – along with countless other acclaimed international acts from Las Vegas, to Brighton and even the Amalfi Coast.

The Impala layout has been built from the ground up over the past two years with the DJ experience its central feature. A raised DJ booth sits between two lounge spaces, with a “no compromise” sound system designed to uplift every corner of this significantly upgraded restoration project.

Impala is the hottest, sexiest, most romantic club in Auckland‘s nightclub scene.
