It’s a tough job being tucked between New Zealand’s finest wine regions, but some place has to do it. That place happens to be the coffee, craft beer and culinary capital of Wellington.

Wellington is known for its vibrant arts scene, world class café and restaurant culture, and active outdoor lifestyle. With an easily walkable downtown area, set around an attractive waterfront, Wellington's creative cosmopolitan city combines the sophistication of a capital with the charm of a village.

Wellington enjoys more cafes, bars and restaurants per capita than New York City, and its coffee and craft beer producers are internationally recognised. You’ll find quirky cafes, innovative menus and award-winning establishments catering for everything from quick bites to long nights.
