Cuba Street Mall

Enjoy artisan coffees, sample specialty foods, browse through vintage shops or hunt for retro bargains in Wellington's bohemian heart.

Cuba Street Mall is one of Wellington’s trendiest areas. Its historic buildings, funky shops, café culture and eclectic mix of residents make it a magnet for visitors and locals alike.

Wander the streets here to view a variety of historic architecture. Many of the buildings on the upper section have retained their original use and house specialist retail stores. This is where you’ll find long-lost vintage records, rare books or unique retro fashions.

Wellington is known for its café culture and has over 19 local coffee roasters. Sit down with a coffee and people-watch or chat with one of the artistic locals. Create your own food tour and try specialty chocolates, locally made cheeses, New Zealand’s own manuka honey or an array of international cuisines.

In the centre of the mall is the iconic Bucket Fountain. Constructed in 1969, this is one of the city’s most unique and quirky landmarks. It consists of a series of buckets that fill with water until they tip. Be careful not to stand too close because it is known to splash visitors as they pass by.

Cuba Street was established in the 1840s and was named after a ship that transported early European settlers to New Zealand. Once home to builders and merchants, the street’s Victorian, Edwardian and art deco buildings now house boutiques, cafés, independent designers, vintage shops, bars and pubs.

Visit on Friday evenings to check out the Wellington Night Market. Over 22 stalls offer arts and crafts, independent fashions, jewellery, electronics and cheap eats as well as local and international delicacies. Relax with the locals, listen to live music, watch cultural performances or unwind with a foot massage.

One of Wellington’s main streets, Cuba Street Mall is a pedestrian walkway located between Ghuznee Street and Dixon Street. It is easy to get to on foot, by bicycle or public bus.
