Venue of the Day - San Francisco Bath House

  • What drives you to bring live music to your area?

    Wellington is a city that loves live music and produces a lot of New Zealand's best bands and solo artists. The staff at San Fran as a team are all passionate music fans, so working together we love what we do in hosting tours, promoting shows and being able to open the way for the people of the city to see the best music across all genres.

    What days of the week do you have live music?

    Live music nights are predominantly Wednesday to Saturday, however many touring acts play at the venue outside of these nights, so things change regularly - best to check our website ( or Facebook page to see what's on each week, as we are licensed to trade daily.

    Tell us about a favourite live music moment?

    In 2011 we helped drive a fundraising event for Christchurch earthquake recovery, which was a huge thing to be a part of. A number of venues, bars and cafes around Cuba Street in Wellington were involved, and the event showcased some of the best local performers who all pitched in to help raise money for the cause. The unity and love from the Wellington music community was massive, with Fat Freddys Drop closing set at San Fran being a hugely memorable performance.

    Please give us details of how and where people can find your venue?

    We are at 171 Cuba Street, Te Aro, Wellington - a CBD location with a number of awesome cafes, bars, restaurants and record stores around us
