Wellington Gems

Are you planning a trip to Wellington for the World of WearableArts?

Make the most of your visit with our list of the locals’ favourite gems, all within walking distance of the Wellington Waterfront and TSB Arena. We’ve chosen independent stores and cafes with beautiful fitouts that reflect the unique character of our precinct and provide a fabulous shopping and dining experience.


The entrancing scent of carefully formulated skin, hair and body care products will draw you in to Aesop’s signature Wellington store. Intelligent and sustainable design are reflected in both the products and store fitout, which features natural timber and large windows, allowing light to filter through. Informed consultants will be pleased to introduce the Aesop range and to guide your selections.

150 Featherston Street, Wellington Central


One of Wellington’s oldest cafes, Astoria recently reopened following an 18 month long refurbishment. The new fitout offers a contemporary aesthetic with low lighting, creating a pleasant ambience in which to enjoy the new menu, which takes influences from Italian cuisine and New York Deli food.
