Yet another one of Wellington's fine cafes. The range of single origin coffees changes regularly and is available just how you like it (cold drip and other cutting edge coffee styles available). They're next door to the Quilter's 2nd-hand bookstore and so make an excellent place to pore over your find from the book mine.

Small plates with the inspiration of the cuisine of Venice are the staple here. Excellent value for money with a good view of life passing by on the junction of Cuba and Vivian streets. Anything with polenta or sardines is recommended, as is the 'polpette' or meatballs (when available). They don't take reservations so if your group is larger than four you may need to wait for a table to become available... which is an excellent excuse to have an aperitivo

Best flying fox in the inner city (and some great winding paths with multiple foot bridges in a rain-forest like environment)

One of Wellington's newest purpose built cinemas (2 screens) able to screen all formats (from 35mm to HFR 3D). Comfortable leather seats with good leg-room throughout. Also contains a restaurant and a well-stocked bar. Lunch and Dinner served every day (last seating for the restaurant usually around 8.30pm). A destination cinema in the suburbs with close links to the people at Weta Productions just down the road. (And they of course stock Gunpowder Rum).

Considered and bespoke drinking pleasure with all the classics referenced and none left behind - always able to whip up something new, off the cuff and on the spot.  Where I often go to see what can be done with the flavour explosion that is Gunpowder Rum.

Some of the finest coffee known to man or beast comes from this cafe/roastery... and then by night it becomes one of Wellington's newest cocktail hangouts. Many a fine concoction of rum and sundries to be had - Jake and Corey are your drinksmith guides.

Wellington's most intense bric-a-brac/junk shop experience - the first part of this cluttered space is a mere decoy - behind lies a mini-warehouse of lost and found pseudo-treasures. If you're looking for glassware, vinyl, books, memorabilia this is the place

One of NZ's longest running cocktail bars, an institution if you must (since c.1999-2000).

Perhaps Wellington's finest collection of bottled beers and ever changing draught varieties (including ye olde Englishe hand-pull) is to be found here. Carefully chilled beers from both near and far are to be had for love or money (well, mostly money - haven't tried love - it might work). Colin is the owner and also a fine host.
