By night, Napier comes alive with an eclectic mix of bars, restaurants and live entertainment venues. Many of these venues are within walking distance of The Dome, or you can take a quick trip down to Ahuriri, with its humming nightlife.

For a refined entertainment experience, The Napier Municipal Theatre is a beautifully preserved Art Deco venue with a busy schedule of international and local performances. Likewise, the Hawke’s Bay Opera House in Hastings and several other independent venues around the region feature live performances and theatre all year round. Also, just a short stroll from The Dome (100m away), The Century Cinema at the Hawke’s Bay Museum and Art Gallery (MTG) screens quality international, independent and arthouse films.
