The night market on Saturday evening looked... More

Cuba Street District is the dining, bar, nightlife centre of Wellington which is very central to all that is going on in Wellington. You'll find a bit of everything on Cuba Street and a dodgy water feature.

Lively atmosphere and plenty of restaurant choices. Lots of al fresco diners and also pubs & bars spilling over onto the street. Felt safe walking around alone on a Friday evening.

As I was staying on Cuba Street for a few days I spent quite a bit of time on this street. So many great food and dessert options. I didn't visit any pubs/bars but I saw quite a few. I walked late at night a few times and always felt safe. Lots going on here and quite active.
