Havana Bar & Restaurant

Havana Bar is located in two Historic Te Aro workingmen’s cottages on Wigan Street. The cottages date back to the late 19th century. During that time Wigan St was on the outskirts of Wellington’s old China Town. The area stretched out from Haining St and Frederick St containing the dubious reputation of gambling, opium dens, and gentlemen’s pleasures.

In 1991 the lads from Havana Coffee Works set up shop in 34 Wigan St and subsequently in time brought 32a. Between espresso’s the idea of a Cuban bar was brewing and before long the infamous owners of Fidels Café were enlisted to bring this idea to life.
