| Welcome to the Lucha Lounge
Ever thought to yourself "Newmarket really needs a small bar that plays great music and sells reasonably priced Mexican fare"?
We have and lo, The Lucha Lounge was born.
Lucha comes from 'Lucha Libre' (free fighting) - you know, large Mexican men in tights and masks strangling each other. We cannot guarantee there will be any of that carry-on at our bar - you will have to come along and find out.
Our bar features a cosy fireplace, a private outdoor courtyard, Tecate and Bohemia imported beers and challenging unisex toilets.
We also have a small menu featuring delicious Mexican-style food.
We can be found just off Khyber Pass, opposite the Cock and Bull.
See you soon!

"We're also fond of the newish Lucha Lounge (1 York St, Newmarket, ph 524 6370, luchalounge.co.nz), where the decor is a sort of sweetly punk-Mexican, paying homage to Lucha Libre, that crazy, high-flying style of masked wrestling.
Comfortable booth seats, a tidy little courtyard - it's not especially edgy but it's not cheesy either.
They do an excellent Apple Pie Margarita ($14) with apple sours here, but if you want something more unassuming, a Becks is $7 and goes down well with the steak burritos ($10.50) which are modestly sized but accompanied by a very tasty Mexican rice.
It feels mumsy to say it, but this would be a fantastic post-movie destination."
