Providing a space for friends and family to gather, share food, drinks and company is the core of what we do. Welles Street was designed for you and we have areas for all types of functions and events. Our team is committed to making your event a success with honest service and quality produce.
Our menus are created with care and devotion to ensure each dish is fresh and tasty, by sourcing locally and using seasonal produce. We can tailor anything to suits your needs, budgets and dietary requirements on request.
With our “come as you are” approach and space for over 400 punters, finding a spot won’t be an issue. We like to keep most of our seating for walk-ins, however we do take a small number of bookings each day for groups of 15 or more. Best to give us at least 24 hours’ notice so we can guarantee your desired date and space will be available.
Built for the 4 seasons in one-day weather not unusual here in Christchurch. The north facing urban oasis is sunlit from dusk to dawn. Ideal for stand-up cocktail parties, birthday lunches and long lazy Sunday sessions.
Please note - we do not book this area exclusively during the festive season.
Welles Street is open 364 days/year and we pride ourselves on being a fixture in the Christchurch CBD community. As such, we are careful not to hire out the venue in its entirety. We still welcome any proposals or enquiries for large functions (250+) and handle these on a case by case basis.
