Dunedin’s nightspots are up there with the best. Mou Very and Inch Bar are the smallest and quirkiest; Copa, Carousel and Toast are generally popular; while Pequeno, Albar and Tonic are favoured by the professional set.
Jamie at Toast does the best cocktails in town. Make sure you try the Dunedin Cocktail made using Quick Brown Fox when you are there.
Members of the younger demographic dance into the wee small hours at 10 Bar, Urban Factory and Monkey Bar.
These and other clubs are found near The Octagon.
The heyday of Dunedin’s music scene was the 1980s - early 1990s, when the so-called ‘Dunedin Sound’ bands and closely related Flying Nun record label rocked local and indie airwaves.
The Clean, The Chills, the Verlaines, Straitjacket Fits, Sneaky Feelings and 3Ds were actually quite different, but all relied to some extent on the use of reverb and ‘jangle’.
The Southern Sinfonia caters to more classical tastes.
Dunedin Casino offers a premier experience unrivaled in the entire
city for casino entertainment, refreshments, dining. The Casino runs
though to Cafe D'oro and the Scenic Hotel Southern Cross which offers
guests a truely high-class experience during their trip to Dunedin.
Dunedin is the definitive student party town. Hunker down at Scarfie haunts the Captain Cook, ReFuel or Malbas. Try the Speight’s Ale House, the Craic, or the Duke of Wellington for a true pint.
Dunedin is New Zealand’s indie music incubator, and birthplace of the ‘Dunedin Sound’. The University of Otago's Radio One station provides information about local nightlife entertainment and events. You can also catch a live act during O-Week, or at the fabled Chicks Hotel.
The best thing about the short walk along the main street, is the fact that it can take an afternoon to chat to all the people that you know along the way! ..Dunedin is the friendliest little city in the world!
