Cocktail Bar in Wellington

The back-lane location, retro neon sign and unpromising staircase generate a suitably seedy NYC-in-the-'70s first impression but inside is a louche, low-lit tiki bar, where the barstaff shake up fruity cocktails before a backdrop of giant clams, Polynesian-style statues and pineapple lights. Campy, fun and a great place for a sneaky rendezvous.
