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!

Tucked away upstairs. Slightly hidden which makes it even better. Wonderful little place. Great vibe. Great music. Excellent drinks. Something for all tastes. Can’t wait to visit again.

Quite the surprise, not marked, locals know it well, latch on to someone if you cannot find it and don't be afraid to ask! Up a staircase and into the red velvet world of Hawthorn Lounge. A speakeasy of note. Lots of comfy lounges, cosy...More

We headed to Hawthorn early after a really disappointing dinner and it made our evening. The 2 bar staff (both women) were welcoming and knowledgeable. My companion had just come back from Portugal and there was a spirited conversation about port. A hot port drink...More

We popped in for an after dinner drink - replaced dessert. As usual, we were not disappointed, had the WOAP (Wellington on a Plate) hot chocolate... OMG, fabulous!

Go for the quirky drink, don't go for your usual, you won't be disappointed! Great for a pre dinner drink.

If you are looking for somewhere in Wellington to have a wee drink before or after dinner, The Hawthorne Lounge would take a lot of beating. Set in a speakeasy environment, they have a wonderful range of aperitif drinks and the most professional bar staff...More
