1. Do beers and burgers in a laneway
Burgers and beer, a match made in heaven, but they’re even better when enjoyed in one of our refreshed laneways. Head to Leeds Street, grab a burger from the Gorilla Burger food truck and enjoy it with a pint of pale ale at Fortune Favours next door. Soul Shack at Te Aro Park has pretty special burgers too. Get there early to avoid the inevitable queue.
2. Browse the shelves at Unity Books
Is there any more Wellington a pastime than popping into Unity Books for a quick peruse while waiting for your bus? The place is an institution. For second-hand books, try Arty Bees on Manners Street or Pegasus Books off Cuba Street.
