Rude and arrogant bar staff in a place that thought it was better than it was. Very disappointing indeed.

Great staff, great quirky/geeky decor. Excellent craft beer selection. Loved it. One of my favorite craft beer places in Wellington even if others have more rare beers. Pizza ordered in was just okay.
