Location: just south of the city centre, wide range of shops and cafes, mostly fairly down-at-heel though a certain world-famous restaurant is located here

Cuba Street is one of the most prominent streets in Wellington, New Zealand.

Named after an early (1840) settler ship to New Zealand, the Cuba, it is to the south of the CBD, but still in the inner city. Cuba Street was once the route of the Wellington trams. Following the removal of the rails, the middle section of the street was closed to traffic in 1969, and is one of the busiest areas of pedestrian activity in Wellington. Since 1995, Cuba Street has been a registered Historic Area under the Historic Places Act 1993, with numerous buildings being of historic significance, the Bank of New Zealand building being one of those.

It is one of the more bohemian areas of Wellington, and is the home to an eclectic collection of cafes, op-shops, boutique, small fashion stores, art galleries, and music shops. The street is regarded by most New Zealanders as a nexus of creativity and artistic production.
