As the leaves begin to fall, and the scent of wood fires replace the smell of bbqs, it’s time to start wrapping up for the cooler evenings and experiencing the cozy local nocks Wellington has to offer.

Desserts at the Library Bar

The Library Bar is the perfect cozy spot. Famous for their literary themed cocktails, their desserts are also a tempting treat highly enjoyed. If you time it well you can be extra extravagant with Tuesday’s two-for-one dessert deal. We highly recommend the Pistachio & White Chocolate Rocher.

CGR Merchants

Another upstairs bar to get cozy in. Infused in-house, their rum comes in many flavours – their Popcorn-infused rum is a must to try. If Gin is more your style, try their Rhubarb & Coconut infused gin, it’s absolutely delicious.

Top Brunch Places to Try

Neo Eatery is definitely a must visit during the cooler months. You’ll find something for everyone, from the classics to delicious berry smoothie bowls, veggie breakfasts, and even satisfying keto options. Another absolute local favourite for brunch is Loretta. Their scrumptious banana bread and gooseberry and blackberry crumpets are amazing. 

Eat Drink Play Festival

Wellington’s venues have been set a challenge to take hospitality to the next level during the month of May, with food and entertainment that would fit right in on the world stage. The multi-venue event puts a spotlight on local beverages, culinary delights, and talented performer.


And there we have it. We hope you feel inspired to take full advantage of what our wonderful culinary capital has to offer.

Wellington will always be the place to be, and because of that here at HiAtlas properties are not staying available for long. We'd love to hear from you if you have any requirements or have a property that would fit in our portfolio.
