Meeting Wellington singles who suit you
Lonely Planet voted Wellington the ‘coolest little capital in the world’,1 and indeed, Welly is seen by many as New Zealand’s cultural hub, with a lively arts scene, great restaurants, and many other vibrant offerings. For singles looking for entertainment, the capital is the place to be! Yet, for those looking to leave their single days behind them, finding a partner can be a challenge. Hectic office schedules don’t always leave time to look for love on the Wellington singles scene and, indeed, while the nightlife here is great, it is not necessarily the best way to find long-term love. Happily, if you’re dating in Wellington and serious about finding a partner, there is an easier way.

Fun things to do in Wellington
Whether you want to dive inside and escape the wind or embrace the outdoors, Wellington singles have access to some truly romantic destinations. From bustling bars and top-end restaurants to pristine beaches and lush green belt, Wellington singles know this town has everything for a truly romantic day (or night!) out:
A recent survey of our members revealed that 60% of women prefer to meet for coffee on a first date, so an intimate, relaxing cafe is always a good choice. Living in Wellington means those looking for a coffee date are spoiled for choice – after all, Wellington was voted one of the top coffee cities in the world!3 For one of the city’s best brews try Flight Coffee Hangar – they take the art of coffee seriously, yet also boast one of the friendliest atmospheres in town.
If you’re more of a dinner-date person and are after something more substantial, try local legend Ortega Fish Shack & Bar. With a laid-back (yet still buzzing) atmosphere, perfectly fresh seafood and one of Wellington’s best craft beer menus, this is fantastic venue for a lively date. It’s no wonder so many Wellington singles hold this place dear to their hearts.
Those who prefer to meet for a drink rather than dinner are in luck, as Welly boasts its fair share of decent watering holes. From cosy cocktail lounges to thriving bars (not to mention a booming local craft beer scene), the choices are endless. The Sprig and Fern Tavern in Tinakori is a perfect choice for a relaxed evening, offering excellent craft beer, cider and wine in welcoming, laid-back surroundings. It’s a wonderful place to set any nerves at ease.
For something a little more decadent, you may like to try The Library. As well as being home to some of Wellington’s best cocktails, The Library also boasts cosy couches, delicious desserts and hundreds and hundreds of books: ideal ingredients for a a memorable meeting. It’s also right in the heart of Courtenay Place, making it ideal should your drinks turn into dinner!
The great outdoors
Sporty Wellington singles are spoiled for choice: try catching a dose of Yellow Fever and taking in a Wellington Phoenix game at the Cake Tin. Meanwhile, nature lovers will be won over by a trip to Zealandia, where you can see tuatara, kaka and takehe among many other rare New Zealand birds and wildlife. Those savvy enough to book a night tour may even have the magical experience of coming across a kiwi or two.
Wellington singles who like walking are another group who are just steps away from romance. Tramp out to Red Rocks or stroll around the bays for some stunning scenery, or stick close to home, pack a picnic and head up to Mount Vic in the late afternoon – staying until sunset and then watching the city lights slowly come on as the light fades is sure to create a feeling of romance
