Cuba Street

One of Wellington's best-loved and best-known streets, Cuba Street is one of those places where everyone is welcome and feels at home

It's the home of the high/low: dine out on delicious $10 dumplings or a divine degustation at renowned restaurant, Logan Brown; see the Bucket Fountain and street art or cutting-edge contemporary art at one of the street's art galleries. Wellington's home of the unexpected, the quirky, the alternative and the fun – there's always something new to discover on Cuba Street.

Local Wellington drag and burslesque performer Blue Virtue takes us on guided tour of Cuba Street, Wellington to meet some of the people who give Wellington's best-known street its vibrant and colourful reputation.

Burlesque performer Blue Virtue prepares for a show. They also perform drag under the name the Bombay Bombshell.

There's the cafés, the vintage clothing stores and the bars, but what I really love about Cuba Street is the people - they’re the heart and soul
