Yum fried chicken burgers. The sticky buffalo was definitely not sticky but tasted great. We were in the uncovered large table area so heaters helped but weren’t amazing. Couldn’t really see any view from here either.

Always busy when we have visited. Good vibe. Fantastic view. Can be a tad cold if there is a wind happening. There was a heater though. Drink prices on the high side..

If you want to hang out with Wellington's hipster crowd then this is the place to come. The average age is 18-35. Lots of people buying cocktails. There is a bit of seating but lots of standing room. You need to enter this bar via...a lift with security on the street front.More

We went here on the recommendation of a friend and absolutely loved it! We worked our way through a delicious special gin offering with our drinks made by Billy! He was a great host - outgoing, attentive, entertaining, and made wonderful cocktails! The setting is...cool and unique on the roof of a building.More

We called in for some casual drinks on a busy Saturday. A great spot to watch the pride parade! We are from Ireland and found drinks very reasonably priced . We also sampled their chips and were pleasantly surprised given previous negative reviews. Staff were...also very pleasant! Overall a lovely spot!More

Address is Dixon St but entry is around the corner in Taranaki St. Large rooftop bar. Nothing nicer on a nice sunny day. It was late afternoon when I arrived so a cool breeze. But the lovely waiter asked if we would like a blanket....So a pleasant bottle of bubbles with friends before dinner elsewhereMore
