CHRISTCHURCH RIGHT NOW

IT'S WHAT'S ON THE INSIDE THAT COUNTS

The Designer Touch

Walk into Interiors by Lume and you could be forgiven for thinking you’ve stepped onto the set of a high-end lifestyle magazine shoot. Cityscape went to check out the Strowan emporium and showroom that's been making waves – immaculate, beautiful waves – amidst those in the city serious about at-home style.

PIPE DOWN, GARFIELD

Monday Monday

Blue Monday, Christchurch? Heck no; the recently completed overhaul and relaunch of city hospo favourite The Monday Room, now on show in Moorhouse Avenue, is easily good enough to ensure you may never associate this hitherto much-unloved day of the week with bad times ever again.

UNTOUCHABLE

OMG, OGB

Reinjecting life into a Square that is sorely in need of such a retro-cool shot in the arm, the new O.G.B (Old Government Building) Bar has swung open their doors to reintroduce the concept of a Big Night Out to the spiritual heart of the city. Throw on that cloche hat and grab your cigarette holder – time to do the Charlston!

INSIDE WORD

CARLTON GOING BIG FOR NZ MUSIC MONTH

New Zealand Music Month is set to rock May, and it probably only makes sense that Carlton, one of the city's most committed live music venues, has got a few big guests planned (Jason Kerrison, Jordan Luck AND Goodshirt!!!),  in what's looking like a cracking month. Read on for details!
