Christchurch | Italian/Swishy Bar
My NZ  


Beyond Baretta’s impressive main bar is a breathtaking exterior terracotta paved courtyard – piazza style – with wrought iron and awnings, umbrellas and canopies. Beyond that again is the Veto Bar, bold and moody, and perfect for private functions. Select from small plates, pizza and mouth-watering mains – all while listening to acoustic entertainment, and then later in the night, DJs. Elegant yet down to earth, this is the place to be. Pop in for a quick drink and stay on till 3am!
