JH in Christchurch
11 Feb 21
We are excited to say our Christchurch store is now open! While we have been working away on our beautiful new store to get it ready for opening, we have also had the opportunity to discover some of the amazing places throughout Christchurch.
Here are a few the JH teams favourites...
Christchurch’s inner city urban oasis, The Welder is a health & Wellbeing complex located in South Town. With lovely boutique shops and restaurants throughout, it's the perfect spot to catch up with friends.
For good food and even better coffee, Child Sister is a simple, charming cafe to get your fix! The menu is full of old favourites with an imaginative twist - we couldn't go past the jaffle, served with homemade caramel and banana jam.
If you are a porridge fan, this is one you don't want to miss. Posh Porridge is all about organic steel-cut oats, slow-cooked and served with homemade toppings.
With a small cafe and takeaway shop on Montreal Street - Posh Porridge is worth a visit.
CENTRE OF CONTEMPORARY ART
Exploring the city? Christchurch's oldest art institution, the Centre of Contemporary Art holds beautiful exhibitions for you to wander through. Open five days a week and with free entry, it's definitely worth stopping by!
Another stop we think is a must-do is the Riverside Markets. Just a short stroll from our new JH store, the two-storied market space sells fresh, organic, and local produce as well as delicious ready-to-eat goods. Trading 7 days a week you can pop by these markets any day that suits!
Earl Bistro is a go-to for great wine, food and atmosphere. We loved the energy and relaxed vibe here.
Their food philosophy is to take simple and traditional dishes and execute them using exceptional ingredients... and it shows!
5TH STREET RESTAURANT
5th Street Restaurant is a vegan/vegetarian friendly restaurant that ticked all our boxes! With a regularly rotating menu and the use of local and seasonal produce you can expect beautiful dishes that don't disappoint.
PINK LADY ROOFTOP
The rooftop bar dreams are made of, the Pink Lady Rooftop is unapologetically small, exposed to all elements with 360-degree views of the city and one of the best spots in the city for an open-air drink!
THE MUSE HOTEL
The MUSE is our ideal stay, with designer chic surroundings, expressive local art and luxurious comforts. It doesn't hurt that its only a few minutes walking distance to our beautiful new JH store either...
THE BRITTEN STABLES
Restoring the original charm of this beautiful historic building, The Britten Stables is now an exquisite boutique luxury accommodation. If you are looking to stay somewhere a bit special while you are in Christchurch, our vote goes here!
