Napier is set to get a massive boost to its hospitality scene as new restaurants and bars brighten up the city centre over summer.

Napier City Business Inc general manager Zoe Barnes said the CBD is poised to welcome several new hospitality venues and retail businesses to town.

"There is a lot happening over the next few months in the lead-in to summer which will add to the business confidence and general feeling of vibrancy in the town centre at the moment."
