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 the beers etc. I figured out why they don't have barstools, because the staff could care less if you're there. They spent their time on iPads or laptops and very little with customers. Another guy came in and started to ask about different beers and the staff member pretty much told him if he didn't know the difference then it wouldn't matter what he was served. I thought that was downright rude. Anyway, I wouldnt/haven't/won't go back and have told numerous people that there are plenty of great bars in Wellington where the staff are inviting and appreciate a chat.

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.

Dear Tania_and_Rick,

Do you realise that TripAdvisor allows venues to respond to reviews such as yours? Do you *really* want that?

cheers,

Dominic

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.
