    • Medusa’s metal-edged sword
      • 27 Nov 2012
      • Capital Times
      • At 26 years old, Tamara Buckland may be the youngest bar owner in Wellington, not that she wants to be known for that – it could lead to even more trouble from the sometimes abusive patrons, holdovers from when the Vivian Street venue was known as The Hole in the Wall and one of the few places in Wellington for thrashing metal and punk. It’s a reputation that’s stuck to the bar like beer stink to Friday night’s jeans, but she’s hoping to change what people expect when they walk through the doors of Bar Medusa.

      • Downstage Theatre
      • No - we haven't changed the name of the theatre! Our first floor bar has had a makeover thanks to Massey University design student Brit O’Hara and mentor Debra DeLorenzo, with help of generous donations from our supporters, and funds raised from last year's Flourish scarf auction. After much thought, discussion and suggestions it has been officially christened: The ½.

      • FINALLY the rumours will come true, when Ancestral, a new 1930s Shanghai-style bar, opens on Courtenay Place. Thick blue curtains will replace the old newspaper now covering the windows of the former United Video shop at 31-35 Courtenay Place, leadin

      • Capital Times
      • THE newly-flat grassy area beside St John’s Bar on Cable Street, dubbed “the grassy knoll”, is pumping. Weekend crowds and after-work revelers are freely using the area to enjoy a whitebait fritter and a drink in the sun – without getting told off.

      • Texture
      • “Because you can’t, you won’t, and you don’t stop” is the immortal opening line from a Beastie Boy’s song. It also happens to be the best way to sum up Wellington’s fast-growing bar scene of recent times.

      • Capital Times
      • SPORTS CAFÉ is dropping the sports and going Public. Gina and Nick Mills of Chicago Sports Café fame purchased the bar on Courtenay Place from defunct owners CEA Trading in July, with the intention of giving it a makeover. The new restaurant/bar is named Public, and will be open next week.

    • Betty's - 3 October, 32 Blair Street
      • 11 Oct 2009
      • Texture
      • There seemed to be a big ol’ hype machine at work before Betty’s even opened to the public. I guess this could be expected, mostly due to the fact that new bars have been a little thin on the ground in recent times (but boy has that changed, with more rumoured to be on the way for summer).

    • The Library - 03 October, Level 1, 53 Courtenay Place
      • 11 Oct 2009
      • Texture
      • God I used to love Cabaret. It was an impressive cocktail bar-slash-music venue that really complimented its neighbouring establishments of Chow and Motel. 2009 brings something different, with the library stepping into Cabaret’s luxurious bar space. My first thought when hearing about the new venue was “what’s with the name?” but in the face of such handsomely titled places as “El Horno” and “Sports Cafe” I was willing to give The Library a pass on this one.

      • Poor Auckland. Even though there are way more bars there than in Wellington, we just keep beating them in the bar awards. This year the Matterhorn won Best Casual Dining - Metropolitan, at the Cuisine NZ Restaurant of the Year 2008 Awards as well as the NZ Bar of the Year Award for the third year in a row. At the same awards, Matterhorn's Ricki Carter was named New Zealand's top bar manager of the year, Motel as the cocktail bar of the year and it was revealed that the Mighty Mighty offers the best music in New Zealand. But wait there's more. The latest accolades for Wellington bars come from the New Zealand BeST Design Awards, where once again, Wellington dominated. Three major awards were won in the hospitality design section by some of Wellington's finest nightspots at the Awards Ceremony held in Auckland last Saturday. Good Luck Bar received a Gold Award, Matterhorn a Silver Award and Mighty Mighty picked up a Bronze Award, all thanks to Alastair Cox, the designer of all three winning interiors. The BeST Design Awards are a national award programme of the Designers Institute of New Zealand, recognising New Zealand's best graphic, product and spatial design. -Stacey

    • Here come the 2008 NZ Bar Awards!
      • 11 Jul 2008

      • The premier bars throughout Aotearoa are about to do battle for top honours at the 2008 New Zealand Bar Awards. The final will be held on Wednesday 6th of August at Auckland’s Hilton Hotel. Last year Matterhorn took out the award for best bar, and they are again favourites to take out number one spot in a bid for national domination of NZ's burgeoning bar scene. In fact, Wellington establishments have a strong representation across many of the categories, not to mention a ton of Wellingtonians putting up their hand for bartender of the year as well.

    • Duke Carvell's - A new, cosy and tucked away bar
      • 4 Jul 2008
      • Texture
      • It's easy to get a bit tired of going to the same old bars in the 'grid' of central Wellington. You know, sometimes you just want to have a quiet drink where you won't bump into everyone you know. Times like that, you need somewhere that's tucked away and a bit intimate. For this, Duke Carvell's, the new bar on Swan Lane where Imbibe used to be, is the ideal joint to visit.

Best known as 'Bodega', a popular Wellington entertainment venue in the 1990s, the building was moved approximately 25 metres from its original position on the corner of Willis and Abel Smith Streets and still has the original 'Twin Sisters', 282 and 284 Willis Street, as its neighbours.

However, one category is glaringly absent: best bar. They have best barman, barmaid, music venue and nightclub, but no bar (or best Martini, for that matter).
