20-26 Welles Street, Christchurch Central City, Christchurch

Much like the cosy cervecerías you’ll find hidden along small streets in Madrid or Barcelona, Salut! Salut! is a tiny establishment where atmosphere is at the heart of it all. Dimly lit with a log fire to keep everyone toasty year round, this wine and tapas bar keeps things simple, in the best kind of way: offering a compact menu of traditional Spanish finger-food and an interesting beverage list with a focus on European wines.

Inspired by the Spanish tradition of sobremesa, a post-meal interlude for chatting, relaxing and digesting your food, Salut! Salut! invites people to pull up a chair and spend unhurried time with friends and family. Find a seat along the windows and spot friends passing by or settle into a cosy spot at The Welder for the evening.

The future will see this wee spot put on live music and bring that late night vibrancy of people-filled European establishments to Christchurch. It’s all about keeping things fun and casual around here, so bring you mum, bring your kids and even your four-legged friend, everyone is welcome at Salut! Salut!
