If there’s one type of cuisine I haven’t seen enough of in Christchurch, it’s Greek. Fortunately, Welles Street (located on 44 Welles Street in Central Christchurch), is serving up a modern take on Greek eats. More than just souvlaki, the carefully considered menu incorporates a range of mouthwatering items: everything from rotisserie chicken to baklava soft serve. During the day, Welles Street will be pouring Flight Coffee from a coffee bar at the front of the property. At night, you’ll find a wide range of beer, wine and cocktails as well as margaritas on tap. Need I say more?

The spacious yet sleek beer hall is characterised by high ceilings, forest green subway tile counters and plenty of seating.  There are some excellent neon signs and the bathrooms are well worth a visit. Trust me. You’ll receive a text when your order’s ready, which allows you to catch up with friends instead of hovering around the till (genius!)

Striking the perfect balance between indoor and outdoor flow, the bar and eatery is sure to become Christchurch’s favourite summer spot. It’s an industrial warehouse in the middle of Christchurch city, and you’ll need to experience it for yourself.
