I was surprised, given the usual turnover of bars in Wellington, to find this small treasure still going strong after more than ten years since our first visit. It obviously hit on a great formula- to my knowledge it was one of the first to reinvigorate table service, carefully crafted cocktails and comfortable surrounds. A million miles away from the...

A great hideaway bar just off Courtenay Place. The place to go for that quiet end of the evening drink.

Have been trialling a few new places lately. Really want to find good bars that suit us and a night out that makes us feel special and that we are in a cosmopolitan city. Thus place fits the bill perfectly. The place is small, intimate for couples or groups of friends. The service is friendly and knowledgable. Will add to... More

I had an amazing night last night at Hawthorn Lounge. Fun drinks and wonderful intimate atmosphere. I went with a friend and ended up meeting a wonderful gentleman. We were able to talk all night by the fire while listening to the live music. I am very disappointed with myself for not giving this lovely Australian man (living in NY)... More

Last night in NZ was the best night, made so by the welcome I got at this place. Chris made me so welcome: asked my name, remembered my name, introduced me to interesting people. And the cocktails were amazing. Instead of sitting playing with my phone, as I have done in most places on this trip, I chatted for the... More

This is one of the best cocktail lounges I have ever visited. The service was perfect, we had a gentleman go out of his way and make us a shooter. The female staff were all absolutely brilliant. Making sure we had topped up water, our drinks were never empty. Great choice of cocktails. And the atmosphere was amazing!
