For over 100 years our place here in Te Aro, Wellington, has been a favourite meeting place for locals. We love being a part of the community and we are ready to throw in the hard yards to make sure everyone who visits us has a great experience. The Cross has something for everyone – have a look around and choose the perfect spot to suit your mood. Each area has been designed to create a different experience, a different ambience. Bring in your team from work, your mates, your kids, your grandparents, your study group, your special someone, your laptop, your dog (in the garden bar!) or your party guests – we can set you up with a space, top-notch food and drinks to suit your occasion.
We like to make our guests as comfortable as they would in their own home. Our friendly staff will ensure you enjoy your time at ours. We love to play host at special occasions – we provide you with a hassle-free time with plenty of delicious food and drinks (not to mention we take care of the clean up!). The Cross is also a great place to pop into if you’re in the mood to chill – we have magazines, newspapers and boardgames on hand if you’re keen.
There’s no room for getting bored here – we’re not just a place to grab a drink. Each week is chocka with entertainment – from massages for new parents, to live gigs, to quizzes, to life drawing! Head over to our website for a full brief.
