    A decor of steel and concrete with lots of natural light gives this modern space a semi-industrial look, and every table comes with a view of the iconic Dunedin Railway Station building just across the road. You can enjoy market-fresh light fare by day and a lively cocktail scene come sunset. Its brunch is also very popular.

    Possibly the snuggest bar in Dunedin came to notoriety as the hangout of choice for Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, of the band Coldplay, during the Dunedin shoot of the film Sylvia. Leather chairs, an open fire, and a good selection of whisky and cigars add to the lounge atmosphere. The wine list is good as well, if pricey, and there's live music some nights.

    A prime spot at the heart of the university campus ensures a predominantly student clientele, though everyone is welcome. Nights are split between local or national (or even international) live rock acts and DJ-driven nights of 1980s hits, hip-hop, house, and drum 'n' bass music.

    'The Arc Café is a bar, performance venue, café, and gallery all rolled into one. This really informal and affordable joint is probably the only place in town where you can ask for a cognac with your morning coffee without raising an eyebrow. It's open from 10 am until late. Started as a not-for-profit trust in 2000 with the chalkboard philosophy of 'making Dunedin a better place.'.
