Wellington Region Nightlife

  • Welsh Dragon Bar

    Wellington Nightlife

    The Welsh Dragon Bar is located on an island between Cambridge Tce and Kent St in a what was once a public toilet. It was a toilet stop for the trams and plays on both Welsh culture and former building purpose with their motto - "come in for a leek". I met Craic and Kiwi here for the start of a pub crawl and it was very quiet indeed - lots on...

  • The Thistle Inn

    Wellington Nightlife

    The Thistle Inn is an interesting place to visit for an evening drink. It's history begins in 1840, where it stood very near to the waterfront until land was reclaimed in 1876 pushing the foreshore further away. Check out the photos on the wall, depicting this. Some photos from early years and comparisons with how things are now. There is a lot of...

  • Motel - A room with a drink

    MotelThis is a very comfortable bar located upstairs and accessed via "Chow" an Asian Fusion eating/drinking/meeting spot on Tory Street Pretty relaxed in fact the code really revolves around your behaviour rather than the nature of your rig. As with most of Wellington the rules are rather oblique but try not to be dressing too down - no sneakers...

    Cuba Street has some good nightlife. Also good for shopping, many bohemian funky shops, internet cafes and the likes.

  • Liks Nightclub

    Although this is a female strip club for guys, I am made most welcome with friends that I take along, either male or female, it is not sleezy or a grubby place in terms of nudity but a friendly, down-to-earth place - and non-stop music from Monday to Saturday 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Tidy dress and good attitude are essential

  • Molly Malone's is a night club...

    Molly Malone's is a night club in Taranaki Street, great atmosphere and full of people.It comes from an Irish beginning, so everything looks and sounds Irish. No ripped or torn jeans I would say; or rough clothes in general.

  • along Courtenay Place

    It's been a few years so I don't know what's in or out, but just wander along the main streets and judge for yourself. The beauty of Wellington is you can easily walk from end to end doing a regular 'pub crawl'. Back in the day we would often go to a 9pm movie to kill time before hitting a bar like 'The Hog's Head' for a few drinks before the...

A converted tea room, it now houses the latest hip hop beats and 3 huge fire...

    Not really a night out's entertainment but a lovely time full-in - go to Palace Tavern (Victoria Street) and put some coins in the juke box it has a jolly great selection! (Yes there is a bar and a mini casino and MAYBE food? But I go there for the JUKE BOX!) Actually it can be pretty quiet otherwise. THE JUKE BOX! (also it's central, near the sky...

    I absolutely LOVE Bar of the Stars kareoke bar. One night I went club-hopping and found people to be unfriendly and or sexist. I went into Bar of the Stars Kareoke Bar and instantly was greeted by some lovely friendly people!! Most of my social circle now is made up of people from there! They have a Kareoke Shop where you can buy disks and you can...
