Every Wednesday come along and meet some local Couch Surf hosts and travellers, 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!
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!
If you're lost, just ask at the bar.
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 Kimberly, a CSer who works there, welcome us all along!
