Laneway between Barton Street and Anglesea Street, Hamilton

Casabella Lane is as enchanting as it sounds - but you’d miss it if you weren’t paying attention. 

This little lane between Barton and Anglesea Streets is bursting with treasures, and with 17 locally-owned stores there’ll be something that catches your eye, no matter your interests. Bit of a bibliophile? Poppies Bookstore has got you covered. Is fashion your forte? Sills and Co are NZ fashion designers with luxurious wardrobe staples in store, while Zebrano sources fashion-forward plus-sized pieces.

If indulging in jewellery is more your thing, Midas Diamond Jewellers offers a stunning collection of ready-made jewels, as well as the option to customise one of your own. Hair and beauty enthusiasts will feel right at home at Devereux & Villiger - an award-winning retailer for skin, makeup and hair care products along with the Estella Arden Salon and Varda Barbershop.

From sweet treats and coffee at Epiphany Café, bubble tea at A Profound Tea Shop, flavourful Asian cuisine at Kino Sushi, Noodle Bar, Basil Thai Kitchen and Vietnamese Kitchen, your taste buds will be in heaven with plenty of options to choose from. This lane's uniqueness continues with an art supplies store and a wedding photographer.

Next time you're thinking of popping to Centre Place, consider taking a peek down the ultra-charming Casabella Lane and support local instead.
