77 Victoria Street, Christchurch, New Zealand, 8013  map 

Well-established gay bar & nightclub in the Christchurch city centre. CRUZ has been revamped and re-opened in October 2013 and remains the focal point for the gay community in the city.

Open Wednesday-Thursday from 10pm, Friday-Saturday 9pm with a DJ playing chart and dance music on the weekend.

If you can’t find us on the corner of Peterborough & Victoria Streets (opposite the Casino) then just look for the rainbow flags that are always flying in the breeze.

Travel Gay Reviews of CRUZLeave Review

  1. S Sam

    “Transphobic venue actively avoided by lgbt+ locals. Gar bar in name only, not a safe venue.“

  2. C Cal
    Transphobic and misogynistic owners

    “Not a safe space for any of the LGBTI+ community unless you’re a gay man. Misogynistic owners and not inclusive.“

  3. A Alexis
    Only cis homosexual males need come

    “While my recent visit to NZ I stoped in for a drink and to check it out. I was treated horribly by the bartenders and felt very uncomfortable. If you’re trans. I would not recommend this place“
