Welcome to our choice of the best Wellington late night bars and clubs. It’s also worth checking out the Wellington music scene if you are visiting New Zealand’s capital in search of some thrumming night life. We promise it won’t take much effort to find it! Wellington is home to tons of pubs, cocktail bars, wine bars and live music venues which cater for just about every taste going. Whether you want plain-and-simple boozy partying or after dark locations offering something rather more sophisticated and tasteful. Wellington’s proximity to the wine-producing Wairarapa region means the wine choice is top-notch while most pubs offer plenty of choice for the craft beer enthusiast; cocktail wise, expect everything from the classics to the downright quirky.
Enjoy a craft beer or two as part of your classic Wellington late night partying!
