This bar is located in an upstairs location in a lane off Tory Street, a stone's throw from Courtenay Place, the centre for much of Wellington's nightlife. You have to buzz at the door to be let in, and the establishment famously refused entry to Liv Tyler during the filming of The Lord Of The Rings in the early 2000s. The bar opened in 1999, although it had a 1950s dive bar look until February 2014, when it reopened after receiving a tiki makeover. It has a maximum occupancy of 50 people, and has a main room where the bar is, a lounge (formerly the smoking room), and a smaller room at the far end of the bar. Opening hours: 5 pm (Mon.-Fri.)/6 pm (Sat. & Sun.) till the early hours of the morning.
