    Really cool bar. Hard to find up
    Up stairs never saw a sign. Small great bartenders selection atmosphere. Volume etc. great. Did not eat there but spent a couple of good hours. Excellent place to meet friends

    nice casual and quiet place and comfortable seating, A great place to chill. great selection of drinks
    but not much selection when it comes to food. The vibe is 60's to 80's.

    One of the best places in NZ to try different beers. Several local ones on draft plus many more imported on bottle. Staff is very knowledgeable and prices are ok.

    We stopped in for a pint of local brew and also enjoyed lunch here. The terrace was sunny and packed full of people but we were lucky to get a seat.

    I chose the quesadillas and my partner chose the Reuben sandwich both were exactly as advertised.

    The beer was robust the Barman was friendly and knowledgeable and we had a great time strongly recommend it because you can also visit the other fun shops in the Hannah’s shoe factory complex – the chocolate shop the peanut butter shop et cetera

    A quick sneaky drink on the way home from work with a mate. Great changing range of beer and we tried a whiskey to finish that off.

    Friendly staff, very welcoming and bubbly. Great atmosphere. Free bottle of wine for it being my birthday also so that was a bonus! Mechanical bull provided good entertainment too!

    Great bar with a huge rage of flavoured spirits. Had the lemongrass and ginger gin and the pink watermelon gin. really tasty although I would probably preferr d with a good quality mixer (where is Fever Tree in NZ except for a he bar next door!)

    Ivy is the only bar I go to as I feel safe and can watch awesome performers, staff are lovely and they always have a smile (even after a long shift) and I never feel out of place at Ivy. Thank you all and I'll be there this weekend

    Being Welsh, I couldn't avoid the experience. I enjoyed my first visit a few years ago, but this time it was very crowded and very noisy. Still has to be a compulsory visit if you're Wesh.

    Excellent, excellent, Excellent restaurant! What I noticed very soon after arrival was that the staff loved working here. It came across in the way they looked after us, served us and of course, in the food. The staff were very welcoming, warm and friendly. They knew exactly where the produce had come from and how it had been prepared. They were passionate about their restaurant which in turn, made us feel passionate about it before we even tasted our meal. Loved the food. My friend ordered lamb which was cooked perfectly. I ordered fish which was slightly overcooked, but still very nice. The accompanying salads were also delicious. Very happy and would definitely recommend.

    My friends and I fell in love with MiniBar while visiting Wellington, and ti became our go to place to relax and watch some movies at the bar while splitting a few pitchers of cider! All of the bartenders were also wicked friendly, and there are great drink specials!

    Basement bar on Allen Street which is dark and moody but a cool place for an event or a few drinks with friends.

    My previous experiences here were all deep fried platters or burgers, so recently when they advertised a Christmas lunch offer I thought I would give it a go. I had the Champagne ham sandwich with fries, while my friend had the roast turkey salad (both nice twists on traditional Christmas fare). The dessert I had was the Christmas pudding and custard, and the pudding and fruit stack looked good too. This meal showed to me that the kitchen had the ability to do a really good meal.
