What we like in a rooftop bar. Three of us. Great atmosphere, extremely friendly staff, good selection of craft beers and wine. So good we ordered tapas with our third round. Our kiwi waitress from Waiheke was delightful. You've nailed it guys!!!!

Our son took us here for happy hour while we waited for number two to come from the cricket. I was dubious between the little lift and the rickety stairs at the top. To my surprise what a funky little rooftop bar and the fine...More

simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
