WELLINGTON.

St Johns Bar.

By Robert Hill

When sunshine strikes the capital, there’s only one place to go. Set up shop down on the waterfront for an afternoon spent sipping on cold beers.

They say you can’t beat Wellington on a good day and no trip is complete without a visit to the capital’s waterfront. On a sunny day you can’t go past St Johns Bar. Housed in the iconic Art-Deco Wellington Free Ambulance building, St Johns is famous for it’s summer sessions, with Wellingtonians flocking to this hot spot to grab a beanbag on the lawn and soak up the sun. They also run the Wellington Free Outdoor Cinema which is a match for any outdoor cinema experience in New Zealand or abroad. A wide range of international and local craft beers are available alongside an extensive wine list.
