Kia ora and welcome to King St Live - Masterton's international quality, dedicated live entertainment venue and bar.

The intention of King St Live is to bring as many diverse styles of music and entertainment to the Wairarapa for patrons to enjoy no matter what your genre…Jazz, Country, Death Metal, Folk, Reggae, Drum n Bass, Alternative, World, Techno, Comedy… we welcome it all, because we realise the cultural & social significance of celebrating diversity.

Born from a shared passion for music and community, NZ musician Warren Maxwell and local businessman Carl Schdroski established King St Live to provide a quality, dynamic space in Masterton for touring bands to perform in and also as an inviting place for patrons to catch up in a warm and friendly environment. Whether you feel like a refreshing summer mojito in our secluded garden bar or a warm winter mulled wine by the fire, your sated experience is our objective. You are guaranteed a great time at 'King St'.

BUT we don't just do gigs!

We also have the facility to host your event or other private function any day of the week. We can transform the space to suit. And if our regular menu does not suffice for your event, local catering can easily be out-sourced to suit. Please feel free to contact us with any enquiry you should have.

Our capacity is 250 people
