62 Ghuznee Street
Wellington CBD

Down a not-so-hidden alleyway, on a not-so-secret street, lies what is fast becoming one of Wellington's most central institutions. Combining a love of craft beer and coffee with upscale Americana, Husk Bar & Eatery brings together the best parts of Wellington.

Husk offers the rare opportunity to return throughout the day for a different experience, with a breakfast offering that will rival your favourite brunch spots and a bar that taps into their own in-house brewery pouring a host of Bowie-inspired beers. Their fried chicken and jalapeno poppers are very are very much the talk of the town too.

The former boxing gym turned fairy light-filled hideaway offers a surprisingly cosy getaway from Wellington's bustling centre, with industrial fixings and an entirely open brewery to look upon as you eat, drink and while away the day.

Giving you a rare glimpse into where your beer comes from, Husk is separated from Choice Bros brewery by a hip-high booth, with brewers tinkering away at perfecting his wares throughout the day.

Make sure you sample some ‘Serious Moonlight’, ‘I’m Afraid of Americans’ or the seriously good ‘Strung Out on Lasers’ to get a real sense of why Choice Bros stands out among the growing number of breweries in the city.

With wines and barrel-aged cocktails also on offer, the selection would almost be overwhelming if it weren’t for the knowledgeable staff open to leading you through the best of their menu.

Husk stands out as a one-stop-shop for everything Wellington stands for - local businesses collaborating together to bring the best to your table. It caters to a social crowd, with a communally inspired space and a large set of sharing options on the menu. It’s even dog-friendly.

I love the creativity in coming up with new beers. There’s inspiration everywhere in Wellington.
