With a bunch of glorious boutique stores, Old Bank Arcade will cater to your end-of-the-week blues with a spot of late night shopping.

Head down on a Friday night, they're open till 7pm and house a variety of stores such as RUBYI love ParisLush, Taylor Boutique, Sills + CoRicochet, and I Love Ugly.

Lambton Quay


If it's time to stock up on new threads, Lambton Quay is pretty much a strip of shopping paradise. On a Friday night especially, Lambton is generally buzzing with shoppers, all with a similar goal in mind.

Mi Piaci, Glassons and Hallensteins are all open until 8pm on a Friday for all you late night shoppers. Barkers, Country Road, Cue and Max keep their doors open till 7pm, perfect for getting last minute bits and pieces before the weekend arrives. 

New to the neighbourhood is Hurricane Denim. They're open till 7pm on a Friday too and have exactly what kids these days are after.

Cuba Street

Bucket Fountain Cuba St WCC 1405x900

Cuba St is known for its diversity and refusal to be boring, and thank goodness for that! From hipsters to business folk, Cuba Street has the potential to have you decked out from head-to-toe.

On a Friday night, Hunters and Collectors and Fusion Surf/Skate are open till 7pm while Ziggurat and Rex Royale keep their doors open till 7.30pm. If you're hanging around a bit later than that, Emporium's trading till 8pm. 

Victoria Street and beyond

good as gold 3 49083

Victoria St is the home to a whole bunch of favourite boutiques and stores with obvious street cred. 

Wellingtonians love Good As Gold, and for obvious reasons. The clothes are a little bit different, the vibes are as good as gold and they're open late on a Friday. Till 7pm to be precise. The bright and colourful Augustine boutique also closes at 7pm on a Friday.
