Awesome Things To Do In Christchurch Afterdark Adventures

We’re going to the movies


If simply “going to the movies” isn’t enough for you anymore, then perhaps you should look to head along to the Deluxe Cinema at The Tannery. With a handpicked line up of quality movies, wide aisles with genuinely comfortable seats and an incredible range of movie treats like a cheese board and craft beer this experience is sure to cater for even the most discerning movie buff!


It’s showtime


Time for the Ballet? An entertaining musical number? Or maybe some stand-up comedy is more your style? Whatever you are into, settle in for an evening of culture and history at the Isaac Theatre Royal. Grab some tickets online, or at the ticketing desk onsite, and enjoy a night out! Make it a full evening event with dinner down New Regent Street and a nightcap at The Last Word.

Let’s make a night of it


Grab your dancing shoes, put on your fancy clothes and head out for the night at one of the many bars and restaurants you’ll find grouped around the city centre. St Asaph Street for a bit of nightlife and dancing, Poplar Lane for some casual drinks with friends or Victoria Street for something a more sophisticated.

All aboard


If you are looking to do something a little more “Christchurch” inspired, then hop aboard the Restaurant Tram for a unique experience. Enjoy a three course gourmet meal including a welcome drink while you journey around the city on a historic restored tram. Who doesn’t enjoy a little bit of sightseeing over their delicious salmon and venison?!


Red or Black


Time to get serious and up the stakes with a trip to the Christchurch Casino. More than just pokie machines and blackjack tables, the casino has 5 restaurants and bars (Chi Kitchen, Monza Sports Bar, The Grand Café, Valley Café and Sixty Six), plus regularly hosts live entertainment and screens live sports games. As a side note - make sure you are dressed smartly, and are over 20 years old!
