Gay Wellington Clubs, Bars, EventsHundreds of gay Aussies will descend on New Zealand’s capital city this coming March for the 2nd Asia-Pacific Outgames.

Wellington is a compact, flat centre which is very easy to explore on foot. Here’s our must-do picks for the witty little city which was recently named one of Lonely Planet’s top 10 cities for visiting in 2011.

S&M’s cocktail lounge

Wellington’s warm and welcoming watering hole is located at 176 Cuba Street, the city’s off-beat cultural centre. Flattering lighting from Egyptian chandeliers set the mood, while gentle music plays and friendly staff mix your drinks. Downstairs is open on Friday and Saturday nights, with a DJ and a dancefloor area.

Club Ivy

Welly’s only gay nightclub is busiest after midnight on Friday and Saturday nights. Club Ivy is centrally located at 13 Dixon Street, the sizeable club frequently holds special events like fierce drag queen contests, Mr. Gay Wellington pageants, and camp shows. The main nightclub is on the top floor, but the middle floor is worth a look too, as a chilled-out space with smoking area.
