Dakota has been giving Wellington it’s own country haven since 2013.

7 Years, 2 locations, a whole lot of good times! 

The evolution of Dakota started in 2013 at Allen St. Wellington, becoming the cities favourite honkytonk! 

Our signature cowboy hats became a hit with the customers, alongside our great country party music and exceptional staff! We've held live music, functions and been the official place to party when international country stars have come to Wellington!

After 5 years of success it was time to make Dakota bigger & better whilst continuing to provide the best service and bringing a little bit of the Wild West to Wellington! In January 2018 Dakota reopened its doors at 74 Courtenay Place, right in the heart of Wellington's nightlife. 

Since our reopening Dakota has become the place to be! We've got the best service in town, the best drinks in town and a whole lot more to come!


Head down to Dakota any day of the week to don a cowboy hat, sip a cocktail and rightly yee your haws!


At Dakota we pride ourselves on being a little country family! We have the best staff which means
our customers get the best service! We’ve created an amazing culture that empowers our staff to be
the best they can be, inside and outside of work!
