Allen St is an authentic purpose built rock music venue, an unpretentious no fuss entertainment experience with a one of a kind art-filled interior that will have you feeling like you’re stepping into a club in Chicago.
We've all got a story to share about Allen Street. With its unique character and charm, there's no place in Christchurch like it. Located in Allen St a few doors down from legendary Winnie Bagoe’s, Black Bettys & just minutes away from the hospitality hub of High Street and Soul Square, we truly believe Allen St will quickly become one of Christchurch’s musically-enlightened venues to play at.
Everything in the venue, a former motorcycle shop, has been recycled from “old” Christchurch. Award Winning Dean Johnstone of “Dream It” has worked on many film sets with the likes of Sir Peter Jackson, he has created an incredible themed fit out, he has thought of everything, from a dedicated Green Room for the Bands, chill out areas to a faux brick wall that bands will write their names on each brick after playing here.
Most importantly, its about creating magic…Allen St is all about the music and people having fun, with hopes to bring together artists, musicians and creative types, as a place to connect and promote the local scene, without isolating those not already a part of it and to encourage those to get involved. On top of this Allen Street offers a casual drinking establishment with great food and fantastic friendly staff.
If you're out and about and don't fancy the typical nightlife scene, you've got somewhere you can bring your friends and chill to Rock n Roll.
The main bar is huge with private booths, great for catching up with friends after a long day at work. Each booth area has a different feel & view of the venue that will give you plenty of options to sit back and be entertained from all angles.
Allen Street promises to deliver on the best quality sound, a lighting show and a sound engineer to ensure all our bands and musicians sound the best they possibly can.
Our venue is available for special events, private functions, parties and live music.
