White House
White House is somewhat of a Wellington institution, having served exquisite food for over 15 years. Set in a beautiful 20th-century beach cottage, the restaurant grants striking views across Oriental Bay and the harbour.

Motel Bar
The exclusive Motel Bar in Forresters Lane is designed somewhat like a 1950s Jazz Club where a combination of smooth jazz and contemporary tunes create a refined feeling of elegance. Offering over 200 creative cocktails, the Martinis are a specialty.

Jet Bar
The Jet Bar is a hip hangout located in Courtenay Place. Set over two floors, the sleekly designed bar attracts a glamorous clientele with its funky booth seating and sophisticated cocktails.

Last Supper Club
Super smart and upmarket is The Last Supper Club in Blair Street, with its glossy bar and excellent cocktail and wine menu.

Performing Arts
Wellington is an excellent place to view some classic and contemporary performing arts. The Circa Theatre on the wharf holds modern New Zealand pieces along with established masterworks from Harold Pinter to Oscar Wilde. It's on the wharf next to the Te Papa museum. The Downstage Theatre stages classic dramas, comedy and dance, while the plush Opera House and ornate St James Theatre are home to the NBR New Zealand Opera and the Royal New Zealand Ballet.
