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
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.
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.
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 of the neighbhourhood.
