The Helm Bar and Kitchen

The Helm is Hamilton's premier tavern destination offering a comprehensive range of New Zealand and International draught beers, including Heineken on tap. The Helm is an ideal spot for corporate functions, with its convenient location in the north end of the city and more than 90 car parks available. The food and beverage menus feature a wide range of options including tasty, value for money bar snacks, stone cooked pizzas and a full a la carte menu. The Helm also possesses arguably the most state of the art garden bar in the Waikato, with a fully provisioned outside bar covered with a louvre-tech canopy and a 200 square metre beer garden with shade from a number of large trees and furnishings for more than 100 people.
