Cafes, Restaurants and Nightlife

A dynamic inner city

Day or night, the inner city of Christchurch is humming with entertainment activity. The city’s new blueprint has allowed entertainment clusters to spring up along the riverfront Terrace, in the quaint heritage buildings of New Regent Street and throughout the inner-city shopping precincts. Whether it’s browsing the riverside markets, exploring the nightlife, enjoying a casual dinner or a formal event, there’s always something new to discover within easy walking distance of Te Pae Christchurch.

For foodies, our culturally diverse region has something to satisfy everyone, with a variety of hospitality options to suit any budget – including fine dining and casual restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs. The city’s thriving, contemporary food scene is supported by a network of chefs, artisan bakers, butchers and wine-makers who draw on the rich produce of the Canterbury region as inspiration for a wide variety of local and international cuisines.
