Sandwiches is Wellingtons premier Entertainment Venue, with an up market Lounge Bar offering premium food and beverage, and a large capacity Club Venue offering premier cutting edge music. Located next to the Embassy Theatre, at the Kent Terrace end of Courtenay Place, Sandwiches is the jewel in Wellington's bustling entertainment and hospitality crown. However, Sandwiches is far more than just a venue.
The Sandwiches brand was founded by Directors Bryce Mason and Wade Lipsham in November 2000. Fresh from his return working abroad with some of the most influential names and venues in the world club industry, Bryce and the original Sandwiches team set about creating the most unique Dance Music series in the country. Promoting only the finest international and local talent from Dance Bands to DJs, including the debut performance from the Wellington group, Rhombus, and special guest performances of one of the UK's top club DJs, Craig Richards (Fabric London).
After a string of successful events under the Sandwiches brand, and the monthly event Monkey Business, Bryce and Wade joined forces with former Paradiso Bar General Manager Jonnie Halstead, who together with the backing of Heineken began creating a 1st class venue to act as a permanent staging point for the future of the brand.
After 6 months of business planning, 6 months of design and construction, and now 6 months of trading, Sandwiches has a permanent home and a growing reputation as one of the countries leading promotion vehicles in hospitality and entertainment.
