We headed off to Cuba Street for the Friday night market and it did not disappoint. The place is lively and packed with people but such a brilliant atmosphere. The food stalls were doing a very brisk trade; we started with teriyaki chicken, then moved to another stall for a burrito and finished off with Chimney cake. This is a... More

Wellington's inner city Cuba Street, has a reputation as a tourist must see and place to visit. Regarded as the hub of the city, Cuba Street was once the route of trams until 1969 when it was closed to traffic and made into a mall.

You can wonder up and down Cuba Street then find a different shop every time, it has a range of independent shops as well as some chain ones as well. At the top end of the street you will find lots of different places to eat and also par-take in a few drinks, if you feel inclined!

CUBA street is Wellington's Latin Quarter..there is always something fun going on, or someone interesting to look at. We take our 10yr old daughter here on Saturdays to look at the sights and have lunch at some of the trendy well priced cafes on the street. It is always fun...

I have enjoyed Cuba Street over the months of our stay here. It's a fun place to stop for a drink on a sunny day, and there is a variety of shops, from chain stores to unique places. It's also a great place to people watch. It's kind of a main Wellington street for locals and tourists alike. If you're... More

I love Cuba street! It's a great street with some bigger brand shops but mainly filled with cuter small shops and lots of places to stop for a drink or coffee. The bucket fountain is really fun to watch but don't get too close or you'll get splashed when the big blue bucked pours out! I'd highly recommend checking out... More

It can be good here, but you'd need to pick your time and your venue. It can also seem very desolate and a bit of a "ghost town" - to me, the better cafes are more towards the top end (away from the harbour) ...

Empire Vintage, Hunters and Collectors, Ziggurat and more. We had such fun and it was less distance than I though so walking from the CBD was easy. There looked to be some fun pubs but we didn't have time to explore further.... will return!

Excellent location, the corner queen suites are amazing! We also had dinner at the restaurant and service was outstanding, wine list very good and the steak was the best steak we have had in a long time. Highly recommend this place, we will be back over Xmas for sure.
