INSIDE WORD

WORD ON THE STREET

Openings, openings everywhere! Check out the restored stunning, gilded and glam ornate dome at the Isaac Theatre Royal, head down to St Asaph Street and the new Allen Street Rock Club and Engineers’ rooftop bar, enjoy the summer of cricket at the new Hagley Park Pavilion, and get a coffee or beer into you at the new Joe’s Garage on Cranford Street.

IN BRIEF

Coffee Fix

Christchurch coffee and Clooney lovers can rejoice following the opening of Nespresso’s third Kiwi boutique. It’s located in the iconic Ballantynes department store, and will be the city's home for all things Nespresso caffeine, appliances and accessories related. No word on whether George will drop by, but we can always hope, right?

THE SCOOP

Wanton More

Not content with their Dumpling Masters title, the mad genisues at Pot Sticker Dumpling Bar are now rocking the country’s first dessert wontons. They've wrapped up a killer combo of Whittaker’s Dark Chocolate and banana in a crispy wonton shell: it's all dusted with coconut, icing sugar and cinnamon to create little bundles of nirvana.
