The Nark is here! Introducing a new era in weekly Welly parties!

Wednesday (ˈwɛnzdɪ, -deɪ)
— noun

1. The fourth day of the week; third day of the working week

2. The day on which the young, creative and independent minds of Wellington converge on the usual watering holes with the goal of losing their inhibitions, minds and the plot, into the wee hours of the following day (see Thursday). With that in mind, a new collective has been populating the inner CBD and cyberspace with flyers and pages, forcing you to consider the questions:

Who is The Nark?
What is The Nark?
Where is The Nark?

Well the answer has finally arrived…

The Nark is a new free weekly Wednesday club night filled with live music, great DJs and drink specials. It’s no secret that Wednesday’s are already a great night to get inebriated but unfortunately there aren't too many places to hit round here... until now. Thank God!

The Nark is here! Kicking off Wednesday 11th May @ Alice. This place is not is not what it seems. Follow Alice down the rabbit hole that is Forresters Lane (Off Tory St) past Motel until you're shown the way. Enter into the misty maze and find your crew a booth to enjoy a round of Agwa, the finest coca leaf liquor. Crank out a drinking game or a session of scrabble until your feet decide to dance.

With this mad hatter mix of musicians from around the place...

Heat Like Me live - The return of the capital's finest with all your favourite drum machines, analog synths, tape, valves, delay, phasers, things with too many LEDs. It’s like a synthetic trip gone wrong with splashes of '90s new wave heaven, which means it’s really good!

Daniel Farley (Akl) - Direct from AA meetings in Auckland the godfather has come to show us what’s what and give the Nark a push from the North.

DJ It Puts The Lotion On - Your old mate from round the way, a nice guy, does a lot of work for charity and doesn’t like to talk about it. Works that Radio that keeps us Active

Kevin Freshness - Greasing it up since '08.
