Handpicked by a Wellington Local Expert, we bring you our guide to 'Best Wine Bars In Wellington'.

Noble Rot Wine Bar

Multiple award winning wine bar located in Swan Lane in the heart of Wellington.  The wine list, overseen by sommelier Maciej Zimny, is Noble Rot’s pièce de résistance … it has no peer, and rightly wins a lot of plaudits. The food is exciting and innovative, taking a great deal of skill to achieve that deft simplicity.  The whole package is delivered without complication or fuss...

Hippopotamus Restaurant and Cocktail Bar

Exquisite fine dining opposite Wellington Harbour in this third floor restaurant inside the QT Hotel (formally Museum Art Hotel). Stunning, ornate decor, five-star service and food that looks far too good to eat. With its flamboyant Parisian chic design, marine views, large tables and high-class ambience, Hippopotamus is one of Wellington's most sought-after places to eat. The restaurant off...


Charley Noble

Charley Noble showcases local ingredients, natural wine and craft beer. Located in central Wellington, the restaurant was an instant hit, winning awards in its first year and continues to be successful with a One Hat recommendation in Cuisine's Good Food Guide. Charley Noble was the sailors’ name for the galley chimney, which drew the heat from the galley stove and carried it safely above dec...

The Library

The Library is tucked away in the centre of Wellington's lively Courtenay Place. The name gives the style of the decor away.  It's a cosy, atmospheric bar that is a popular spot to let your hair down. The fun bar offers a good selection of cocktails including the ' Lower Hutt Lemon Meringue' and a 'Watermelon Margarita', along with a carefully selected wine list. The food menu concentra...

Hawthorn Lounge

The Hawthorn Lounge oozes style, taking visitors back in time to the sophisticated 1920s surroundings of a gentleman's club. The lounge, tucked away in Wellington's Tory Street, is one of the city's hidden gems and the bar offers a world away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Snappily dressed staff provide an array of cocktails that can be chosen from a menu or made to order if guests ...

Puffin Wine Bar

Puffin Wine Bar has a focus on natural, organic and minimal intervention wines.  However, the bar is also partial to a few beers, spirits and cocktails too.   Along with the drinks, there are a number of  salty, smaller plates for sharing and demolishing. They don’t take bookings and don’t offer venue hire or private functions.  This is so anyone can enjoy Puffin at...

CGR Merchant & Co

Tucked away on Courtenay Place, C.G.R. Merchant & Co celebrates the bravery and adventure of the former ships' captains who sailed around the world looking for new herbs and spices to bring home. The drinks menu features a range of cocktails and a selection of gin and rum enhanced by seasonal and classic infusions. Of course, if you don't fancy anything from the menu you can ask the bartend...
