Since 2009 we've been doing what we think is important for a bar, even if that means defying conventions.

That starts with selecting a diverse range of beer styles for our taps while keeping big, corporate brewers out. As a result we've been named the best bar in Wellington by the Society of Beer Advocates and the best bar in New Zealand by ratebeer.com multiple times.

Our electronic menus are updated with product and other information in real time.

We maintain an environment that's safe for all our customers and staff. In the COVID-era that means ensuring good air quality thanks to ventilation, air purification and CO2 monitoring. We also require mask wearing in shared spaces, particularly the bar.

We put our atmospheric underground location to good use and host superb music and comedy in our lounge. Hashigo Zake takes the provision of fine beer to new levels.

We open at midday every day.

Our location is 25 Taranaki St, Te Aro, Wellington, New Zealand.

"And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven."

Open every day except Christmas Day, Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
