SALT District

Named after its geographical positioning in Christchurch’s CBD (Saint Asaph, Lichfield, and Tuam), SALT District is dubbed the city's most alternative neighbourhood. Here you’ll meet a mishmash of interesting characters making heritage buildings, multi-purpose containers, and mural-splashed laneways their home.

Things are done differently on this turf, from the way the coffee is brewed (delicious that is) and how menus are designed (100% local) to the creative possibilities offered by tattoo parlours, thrift shops, and art studios. If you’re looking for a neighbourhood to unashamedly express yourself in, this is it.
