Cuba District is the best for night market. One side is like shops that are stuck on the 80's era but on the other end is where the modern clothes etc. Few pubs around. Some homeless people around which is pretty sad.

Cuba Street is the location for the best clubs, trendy restaurants and an upscale pedestrian mall. I always enjoy my visits there and consider it one of my favourite places in the Kiwi capital

Looking for a tremendous diversity of shops and cafes in Wellington? This is the place. It's a busy street, with part of it being a pedestrian mall. It seems to be an active place all hours of the day.

Lots of history here and some lovely old buildings. Also a trendy area with bars, restaurants and cafes covering the whole spectrum. Some nice shops and designer clothes. There is also a fabulous little florist up towards the top. The area has a really nice feel and is also famous for it's bucket fountain - uniquely Wellington!

There is always something of intrest to be exsperianced in this street. Remember to carry a few coins and take the time to listen or watch a busker. The vintage shopping is great and you need to walk up to the top of the street to have a coffee and food at one of the eclectic cafes. Great places to... More

there are a few chain stores here but most of the precinct is cool independent shops and food stops. Some of Wellington's most famous (and infamous?) cafes are here and restaurants cover all major cuisine types. Most are owned by natives of their food style and the is a genuinely cosmopolitan feel to this district. The street has a gentle... More

Cuba Street was in the 1800's named after a ship not the country but now it is full of funky cafes, bars and second-hand clothing shops. The street has buskers, art galleries, graffiti-filled alleyways, quirky cafes, restaurants (expensive and very cheap, lot Asian style $12 meals places) and community exhibition spaces. It is a real mixing pot and a must... More
