Alan's Party BusUpper Hutt CentralI honestly think Alan's Party Bus is the best plan for any kind of party. It's a good way to know everyone will get home safely, they've always got a place to go to, and the drunk ones who don't get let into the clubs, have a secure, warm place to crash out while the rest of the lads keep going. Alan has a liquor licence on board so you can all take booze onboard and enjoy the karaoke, songs, lighting and poles.
Peaches and Cream - WellingtonWellington CentralThere's nothing that screams 'Trashy Hens night' more than a bunch of girls dressed in fugly attire, running around the streets of Wellington with cock straws in their mouths and a long list of to-do's around the hens neck. Peaches and Cream has an entire range dedicated to hens nights wanting to recreate this whole look.
Alan's Party BusUpper Hutt CentralAlan's Party Bus is epic for Hens Night.

The Costume Hire CompanyTe AroIf your next party has a theme, as most do these days, then the costume hire company is awesome for just what you're after.

Barkers Studio Manners MallWellington CentralBecause I want my man to look stylish at all times, the first place I stop into for the best in high quality gears, is Barkers. They've got a pretty cool manager too, John who knows his stuff. He's been on the fashion scene for over five years, so when I need some advice and an expert in men's clothing - John's my go-to guru. Needless to say, my man looks like a million bucks.
TarocashWellington CentralTarocash have shirts that come in a variety of bright colours and shades. Most mens stores don't sell such brightly colourful shirts, and as I shop for my man, I like to make sure he has some good quality colourful shirts to match my dresses, when we go to events. There's nothing more boring than a man in full black.
ALC ApparelTe AroALC are simply put, awesome. Their tee's are funky, unique and not your normal mainstream variety. They embrace Wellington's vibe and tatt'd look and really use this to their advantage. With awesome clothing, caps, accessories and sneakers - ALC have a full range of primo gears for your man.
Meccano Willis StreetWellington CentralMeccano amuse me as back in the day their main man for modelling their snazzy numbers, was Sheldon from Blindspott. I remember wagging school for a day to go and beg the Meccano owners if we could please have the giant cardboard stand up of Sheldon, for our bedrooms. We were tongue wagging teens then and regardless of the model, the gears at Meccano haven't stopped us oogling the guys!

My favourite, MAC is here and they will do your makeup for you so you look like a million bucks. The third on my to-do list for a top to toe makeover

A lady cannot be all done up without having her nails done too - these are some of the first things that people notice when chatting to you! Professional nails will do a pedicure and manicure at the same time, including a foot spa - just make sure you leave your spray tan on for a few hours before dunking your toes in!
Ichiban TeppanyakiLower Hutt CentralI absolutely love Ichiban, especially when with a group of friends. It's BYO, so I purchase a few bottles beforehand and their tables are huge so can seat practically 20 around them. Set menus are good and a cheap option costing each person between $20 to $30 depending on what they choose. The best part of this is that the chef's cook right in front of you, and once they've finished cooking up your yum meal - it turns into a game where you have to catch the bowl full or rice, or an egg in your bowl!
Little India Lower HuttLower Hutt CentralOpen late, Little India is a great location for group dinners.
Chapelli's Eatery & Wine BarLower Hutt CentralLocated just out of the Hutt Valley, Chapelli's is a great bar and restaurant to have your next social shindig. With an array of alcohol and a delicious menu on offer, Chapelli's is owned by locals, for locals.
Thai Express 6Lower Hutt CentralI love Thai food and I love fast food. Not takeaways, I like food that is quick to get to my table once ordered. Thai Express 6 are awesome for this. We are always amazed at how quickly they actually serve up the food and how decent the portions are. Some of the best roti I have ever tasted is from here.
