Before and after theatre drinks and nibbles

Do you have tickets for the Isaac Theatre Royal and want to know a good place to eat beforehand? Check out our recommendations for dinner and bubbles in the city.

Francesca's Italian Kitchen is Italian food at its finest! The woodfired pizza is delicious and the beef cheek gnocchi irresistible. But the star of the menu has to be the tiramisu: creamy mascarpone with a hint of liquor and chocolate dust on top.

Casa Publica is all about South American cuisine. For the full taste experience, we recommend the tapas - great for sharing. Stay on for a nightcap, with the bar stocking over 180 different rums.

Looking for a delicious cut of meat? The Happening is the place to go. On the menu, you'll find tender Canterbury lamb, and venison thyme-infused Dalmore Cigar malt whisky foam. Make sure to leave enough space for a sumptuous dessert or strong espresso.

Places to go for a nightcap

O.G.B. Bar is always buzzing. The food, wine and cocktail menu is exquisite. The highlight of the bar is the location in the beautifully restored Heritage Hotel and the retro interior design.

The Last Word is famous for boutique whisky. The bar prides itself on having a good selection for all the whisky connoisseurs out there.

Christchurch has far more to offer, check out these:
