Located in the heart of Cuba Street, Scotty & Mal’s Cocktail and Lounge Bar (S&M’s for short) is one of Wellington’s favourite inclusive bars. S&M’s upstairs bar has plush surroundings with cedar walls and Egyptian chandeliers to set the mood, while the downstairs B&D bar (basement and dance) has regular shows, gigs and functions – a highlight is Bingay on Wednesdays.

The bar’s owners, Scott Kennedy and Malcolm Vaughan, have a long standing in Wellington's gay community. The couple, who first met at Mr Gay New Zealand in 1992, have worked in the Wellington hospitality scene for many years – supplying hospitality and shows to Wellington’s gay community.
