When the sun goes down and the lights come on, Courtenay Place comes to life. It’s where Wellington goes to celebrate, relax and catch up with friends
Take a tour of Courtenay Place with local guide Sherry Parker as she meets some of the people who help make Courtenay Place a friendly, creative and culturally diverse part of the city.
It’s home to Embassy Theatre, a grand old picture theatre that has hosted red carpet film premieres, including The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King in 2003. It's also where you'll find some of the city's top cocktail bars like The Library and Lulu, award-winning restaurants including Dragons and Ortega Fish Shack and fun nightclubs including Mishmosh and Dirty Little Secret. It's closeby to Te Papa, the waterfront and just a hop skip and a jump from Cuba Street.
With its concentration of cocktail bars, clubs, theatres, all just a short walk from each other. Courtenay Place has everything you could possibly need for a really great night out. It’ll be friendly, it’ll be lively, it’ll be fun.
