It almost like entering a speak easy it’s almost imperceptible to find - but when you do it’s worth the search. Class is every glass. Brilliant mixologists. Great staff. Really comfortable seating and sofas. Great atmosphere. I would hazard to say probably one of the...More

Hidden hideaway gem with elite atmosphere. Fabulous service and amazing flavoured cocktails. Lovely warm fire where we toasted marshmallows. It was like going back in time. A must to visit.

I came here on a business trip as a friend of mine highly recommended it. I felt so comfortable and relaxing here. The Mai Tai is very Hawaiian. And the flaming cocktail was amazing. The bartender was very creative. He didn’t have a standard recipe,...More

Our group had Negronis and Mojitos. Fantastic! Perfectly made. I watched the expert bartenders making all sorts of classics, and it was great to see the attention to detail. Leather sofas, jazz music completed the evening as the ambience was delightful. By the way, cigar...More

Hidden gem in Wellington. Great range of drinks and more cocktails than usual. Staff are friendly and helpful, ambience is welcoming and relaxing. The only downside is it's small and there are not many seats - that however is part of its charm.

I was so upset that I only found this great bar on my last night in Wellington! If I had more nights there, I would have definitely become a regular. The bar staff were brilliant and the cocktails were even better. Highly recommended!
