Overview
More
Hashigo Zake is New Zealand's most single minded beer outlet - defiantly excluding the bland, the boring and the industrial and only serving beer, wine, sake and whisky that our staff and regular customers get excited about. If any of that is a problem, Wellington has plenty of other outlets willing to take your money. But if you want an ever-rotating range of great drinks, brutally frank advice from knowledgeable staff, free wifi and a warm, welcoming environment, step out of the chaos above ground into our basement bar.

Head down an alley, not too far, then downstairs and you are there. A cosy venue, it presents a modest selection of beers, and I did find the staff reasonably knowledgable about them. Been here on nights where it is packed, and there is a...More

Came down the stairs and thought "WOW" looks amazing - but was let down by slow unhelpful, and rude staff - over priced as well!

Great people, great venue, great beers... Got the pork dumplings, primarily made of salt and pepper. Celery ruins the delecate flavour of the pork (which was masked by the salt and pepper anyway). Buy everything else, execpt this plate of steamed garbage.

They come across as a bit arrogant. Some great craft beers etc but just need to work on being a bit nicer...

I visited the bar by myself waiting for a friend to finish work. I thought it was odd that they don't have barstools at the bar as lots of solos like the opportunity to sit at the bar and have a chat with staff about...More

Whiskey ignorant, rude bar lady who didn't want our business. That's fine. We left. I was embarrassed to have taken my guests there. Won't happen again. Will never go back or recommend.

Probably the best bar in town if you are a craft beer geek. A "no crap on tap" motto also applies to their interesting and extensive bottle selection too - while an off-license allows one to continue enjoying some off site.

A group of mates eager to experience small breweries in Wellington CBD were disappointed with this establishment. Expensive, indifferent service- charisma bypass. We found better options elsewhere!

Finish the night here after beervana, loved the atmosphere and decor. Grabbed a couch as soon as it was available, and sipped a couple of umeshu's to wind down. Good stuff.
