If you’re looking for the best nightlife in Wellington, head for the city’s two main areas of clubs and late-night bars. Your preferred destination will depend on your age and style. Courtenay Place is has rows of nightlife spots, from upscale techno spots packed with stylish clubbers to traditional Irish pubs, and the strip has several all-night venues manned by trendy DJs. For more of a neighborhood pub feel, choose any of the bars along Cuba Street, which are equally popular with university students and the business crowd, and are more likely to show a rugby match and serve food. The San Francisco Bath House on Cuba is one of the city's best spots for live music, often hosting well-known international DJs and acts not quite big enough to play arenas; other bars on Cuba usually have live music at night.
