The Third Eye - Tuatara Temple of Taste

30 Arthur Street,
Te Aro, Wellington
When the inner-city bypass was built the old Boys Institute was saved. Now it has a new life as a bar and microbrewery complete with an external mural celebrating the Tuatara brand.

The name derives from the mysterious third eye the Tuatara has from birth.

A music production company was based at 30 Arthur Street for almost 19 years before the Transport Authority took over to build the by-pass.

The architect was William Gray Young (1906).
