Best bar in wellington, in my opinion. The staff know their stuff and are always happy to recommend a beer and give a sample. Food is excellent quality, but a little (understandably) lacking in options. Beer range is excellent. Customers are a varied bunch. Also a great SOBA discount Sunday to Wednesday.

Good lineup of taps that are constantly rotating. A number of internationals along with great local stuff. Staff knowledgable about beer. Some rare (and very pricey) bottles. Better to stick with draught. Food was good, but limited menu and portions small and not value for money-best to eat elsewhere.

Enjoyed this place a fair amount. Nice selection of beers, especially the bottled beer. I had some dumplings that were also nice. Definitely one of the top 3 places in Wellington!

Ok, it should be noted that I was affiliated with this place, but no longer. The bar nails pretty much everything I want from a bar - very knowledgable staff, well chosen beer, rare beer, good mix of domestic and import, tap selection is displayed on a TV and indicates when the next beer will come on. As well as having real ale and ciders plus some good non-beer stuff. Prices are reasonable, food is basic but very good. Only downside is that it can get very very crowded, also I prefer pubs with more food, but given that the food is of such good quality that point is somewhat irrelevant. One of my favorite pubs Iíve ever been and no that is not just because I used to be connected to the place.

Basement bar with three distinct rooms - a back room of tables, a side room of benches and tables, and of course the car itself. The tap selection is small but well chosen, and they seem to do a number of events. Not a bad place to spend some time.

Despite being a grungy underground location, this bar is cosy, and there is always something v hoppy on tap. Located in the Wellington CBD its a good place to hibernate in when its howling outside.

Not sure if I am rating the same place here as my experience was very average. Limited tap selection and I struggled to get an easy going pilsner for my friend. The staff were condescending about my request for this and one joked with a regular about sending out for a Heineken- not impressed. Food selection was small and unusual, but tasty. Not a fan of basement bars and the musty character that invariably goes with them. I think I will stick with the hop garden or the malthouse in future.

Real nice place. So many finer details really nailed here. Taplists are current and show what is to come. Heck, show what music is being played there.
Brilliant service. A bit elitist at times but the staff know their beers and are willing to talk beer which makes it fun. Matching glasswear??? Nice touch.
Food is mostly snacks but well done snacks. Tap prices are very nice. Bottles are priced more to move so can be of good value. Range is solid. Not as good as what we get in Australia but a very good range.
Pretty much a world class venue and very much best venue in the Southern Hemisphere for beer

I canít hate on Hashigo Zake. Itís a true beer bar representing the best beers sourced locally and treats from abroad. Thereís always something new and interesting on tap, though you will need to be quick for some/most beers as the kegs do dry out fast. Thatís testament to the Wellington drinkers, people here want variety and a sense of quality of beer here. Staff are excellent. No doubt the bar does target the geekier crowd, and thatís fine, thereís plenty of other options for good beer around the city. The basement venue works and suits the ambiance that HZ is looking for. Tasty bar snacks. Hard to beat.
