To describe Lyttelton’s infamous Wunderbar as quirky is an understatement. In this upstairs bar that overlooks the working port of Lyttelton you’ll find more than just a string of fairy lights and subway tiles. The Wunderbar makes you feel like you have entered a different realm with an interior that has an eclectic mix of art and curiosities like nothing you have ever seen. Velvet walls, doll's head light shades and hidden toilets, the bar hosts an amazing array of treasures.

At the Wunderbar there's plenty of beer on tap, including Emersons Pilsner, a great range of spirits and bottled beers. The wine is of good quality and the pours are most generous. Food offerings are simple since really you’re here for the beer, the banter and music; the nachos are well worth a try.

The Wunderbar hosts some of the best live music coming out of NZ with a regular array of local artists and touring international and national acts. They also host private functions. The Wunderbar is one of those venues that you need to see to believe ...
