I really liked the Dux. Big and quite maze-like with lots of little rooms, bars, and outdoor areas in all directions. The crowd is a lively mix of Uni students, Art students, backpackers, and families. They do great pub food at reasonable prices (big helpings) and their beer is certainly worth trying, even if it is served way too cold. It is also a useful point from which to base walking tours of the city.

Dux De Lux in Christchurch is tucked away just off the main stretch of the cityís cultural district. The place itself is huge, with two large bar rooms, an upstairs dining room, downstairs restaurant area, and large patio. The place seems to draw a mixed crowd- young hipsters, families, and older tourists were all in house when we visited. The 8 taps are all house brews and I didnít get a sense of the bottle selection, though I know a few guest bottles are around at any given time. The service was fine, but unremarkable for a slow night. We didnít eat but the food looked very good from what I could tell. In terms of atmosphere, crowd, and staff, I prefer the Dux De Lux in Queenstown but this one is probably worth a visit if youíre in Christchurch for a few nights.

My first thoughts was that I preferred the more pleasant Dux in Queenstown. A very student crowd here which is cool, out in the restaurant there was a very diverse crowd as well. Worth checking out if youíre yet to try the Dux beers and thereís a seasonal available too.

(Rating for Queenstown). Mod cafe / bar / restaurant combo done well with an unlikely meshing of pool tables, big screen TVs and casual dining (burgers and the like $15 - $18). There is also a more formal dining arae attached where pricing steps up to $25 - $33. The menus for both read well. 7 house beers on tap (pints $5 - $7) and for the most part are well worth trying, particularly the stout and Norwester Pale Ale.

Cool place to "kick it" before you go in to downtown. Sometimes a cool jazz band is playing by the pool table. Very relaxing before you hit it hard at the Grumpy Mole or Homebar. Try the blueberry brown.

This is a nice place. Looks like an old house. Good beer garden area surrounding the pub. Not a great selection of ales but good all the same. Friendly atmosphere with live music on most evenings.

This rating is for the Dux in Queenstown: very classy looking place that stylistically incorporates all of the traditional pub elements in an upscale design. For example, there are long tables with benches, but they have a modern design element that looks expensive and comfortable; there is a fireplace, but it has a long, stretched-out design that is set at waist height along the length of a dark stone wall. Excellent food, excellent micros, friendly waitstaff, and well-spaced tables make this less a pub and more a hip restaurant that brews their own beer.

I really liked this place. The front features a long bar and a pub/restaurant section. About 6 taps including a seasonal. Large wine selection. Food was pretty solid as well. Decor is a mix of old wood and new paint. Huge outdoor patio with a large number of well-placed shade trees and heaters. Upstairs has a lounge where bands play live music. Also has a cafe inside. Nice place thatís only a five minute walk from Cathedral Square.
