Smash Palace

172 High St

Smash Palace grew from the destruction of the 2011 Canterbury earthquakes. What started as a temporary solution has now grown into a full-blown Christchurch institution. We specialise in local wine and beer and of course... our burgers. We take our burgers seriously and all items are scratch-made on site. Sitting in the middle of an earthquake-ravaged landscape, the bar is a great place to see how the new Christchurch is developing. Come down and enjoy our very own Bodgie Beer, brewed to our exacting specifications by the good folks at Cassells. When the sun’s shining and the motorbikes are rolling in and out, you’d be hard pressed to find anything else like it.
