We had a great experience here and after our dinner booking we went straight back. The drinks were sensational and service beyond expectations. We will be back very soon

Loved visiting this small hidden cocktail bar for a few drinks. Great service and friendly knowledgeable staff. Old fashioned setting, music and atmosphere.

Really fun quirky bar, had pre dinner drinks here and while a little pricey, it's worth it!! They have an amazing cocktail list which can be expensive but it's worth it for a special occasion. The wine list is ok but the vibe and the service were superb, it's dark, has fantastic music and feels like a 1920's speak easy. the barman on our visit was fantastic and knew his stuff, making recommendations based on previous drinks.

It can be a bit hard to find but a great place to visit.

Easy to find - no. Cozy & intimate - yes! I was underwhelmed by the whiskey selection. This is more of a cocktail lounge, as you can tell they take real pride in the craft creation. Service was knowledgeable, but could be up-leveled a bit more on personal attention. Definitely worth a stop if you can find it!

Amazing staff. There is no way the service could be better. Ambience and decor stunning. Music fantastic. Everything simply perfect. I was introduced to this bar on a trip to Wellington a few years ago and it’s now a must visit every time I’m there. Took some friends there this last trip and unfortunately it ruined every other bar we visited. Nothing else compares!

Drinks were good, little over current cocktail list, like the traditional cocktails personally along side contemporary.
Nice environment, an over bearing patron was not requested to soften their conversation.
Big let down for me was paying $100.00 for 4 cocktails and being asked to tip !!!
I will now avoid because of this.
