Weekly Couch Surf drinks!

Organized by Mike Moore, Zak Hynd
Every Wednesday come along and meet some local Couch Surf hosts and travelers, in the unique post-earthquake open-air bar, Smash Palace.

There is some semi-enclosed areas with nice hot gas heaters, however during the colder winter months in Christchurch, you should wrap up warm! That said, the bar can lend you blankets and hot-water bottles if you need.

Look out for the Couch Surf sign on our table. We are located on the right-hand side of the bus when you come in the entrance -within the enclosed plastic area.

If you're lost, just ask at the bar.

Depending on the weather or cosmic alignment, some folks will show up a little late. We regularly see 10+ people trickle in at around 8:00, so if you're early please be patient, ask at the bar for the Couch Surf sign and relax; we'd hate to have people walk away dejected.

Smash Palace offer Couch Surfers $6 pints of Bodgie (a local 5% pilsner beer), and $6 house red and white wines.

There's also a nice hot menu available.

It's a cool (and cooler in winter!) environment, with a great mix of really interesting and fun people.

If you have just arrived in town, this is a great place to start and connect with others.

Johnny, the owner and his friendly staff, have been hosting Couch Surfers for a long time, so know how to make you feel welcome!
