Loved this bar. Here for the Lions tour, here as part of corporate function for the game. Thanks Dixie for being everything that someone in hospitality should be. You are a credit to the industry and Wellington has been a credit to NZ.

Nice place for private function had a lot of character and good size place for function. Nibbles were provided and thought they were lacking in taste
