BreakFree on Cashel Hotel is home to Cafe & Bar 165, with its menu of zesty Asian meals and Kiwi classics that won’t hurt the wallet.

An open plan interior offers a bright space filled with the hum of conversation as Cafe & Bar 165’s rush hour begins early. As the day rolls on, visitors come and go, picking up a quick bite to eat, or meeting for coffee and enjoying a rest from lively shopping expeditions.

A collection of modern fittings creates a light-hearted atmosphere inside; walls are crafted from recycled timbers, while glowing vintage bulbs add a quirky touch. Meanwhile, a backlit bar tempts those in need of a refreshing drink with a friendly selection of beverages. Coloured lights flash and swap to highlight local and international wines, ciders and local craft beer, and for those who prefer, there is a classic cocktail selection that proves hard to resist.

Also close by are some of Christchurch’s best restaurants, cafes and bars. From Spanish, to Italian, Burmese, French and classic New Zealand menus with home-grown produce, including locally sourced lamb, beef and fresh seafood from the Canterbury coast, your culinary tastebuds will be delighted on your trip to Christchurch.
