    Second visit in 2 years. Visiting city from out of town. Like craft beers and particularly the wheat beer. Last visit staff member was awkward and upset me so much that I walked with just a dozen bottles. Could have bought a lot more but put off. Passing area once more so stopped to re-try place for a Friday night quiet beer. What a disappointment again. Table service okay but no handy list of beers available so had to go back to bar. Ordered 2 drinks & reseated to wait for them. Waited some time & noticing other patrons who arrived after us being served. Looked around for our barman & nowhere to be seen. We left. Never returning here now.

    Really cozy atmosphere with super friendly staff and cats! I'd recommend it to anyone ♥️ Ordered a coffee aswell and it tasted great with very cute cat-related presentation. Definitely coming back again ☺️

    Fun night. Great leader that showed us many techniques that we needed. Great platters and full bar available. They are moving to the art centre next week which will be better for business. Highly recommend. I am really impressed with my painting.

    Great atmosphere and exceptional barman. Max can not only mix some great cocktails, but his fun outgoing personality made the evening exceptional. Definitely a place to go back to.

    Having spent some time travelling around N.Z its great to see this little town of christchurch has at least one decent club amongst its dull nightlife, im just so sad i didnt find it earlier.
    We had left their bar street by the river and was walking back to the air bnb when the sweet sounds of some drum n bass music drew our attention to a lights and sound extravaganza,directly across from where we were staying, couldnt believe our luck, the security accepted our accents and foreign passports and as we were about to pay our entry fee the owner of the bar waved us through and told us much to our horror that this would be there Last Gig Ever. This little humdinger of a show featured some pretty amazing local talent and of course one of my (England) country's best d.j's Murdoch , the venue itself is huge ,and the staff where nothing short of amazing, drinks as far as this town goes were very reasonable in price , not only was this an amazing night but i learned from one of their staff that they have toured some of the largest names in the biz through this establishment, wish you guys all the best and thanks for looking after as all, sorry cant remember the owners name but we would have paid to come and see that so cheers for letting us in best of luck .

    10 of us descended here and we had fabulous service all night. Wide variety of drinks and all delicious. Food great, tasty fresh and varied. Great value. Only tiny change would be to make it slightly less loud so we could hear. But we moved outside to fix that. Thanks team.

    Me and my friends went to the place and suddenly one of the staff took my frienda cap without explaining. He was hesistant and they said that customers are not allowed to wear a
    hat so, we don't have a choice as these are in their policy. However, when we went out my friend realize that he left his cap and went back to ask for it but the staff said that SOMEONE TOOK IT. I told them that no one of us took it. Our friend complaint and said that we are complaining but the staff PUSH our friend out saying that someone already took it and that we are theit premises.i told them we are customers and we are complajning but the STAFF LAUGH at us saying go and complaint
    We said we'll send this to the polics and they still keep on laughing. WE ARE A CUSTOMER AND ITS OUR RIGHT TO COMPLAINT AND BE RESPECTED
