Mystery bar number 6

File under: , ,

Today's mystery bar has a definite old-school bohemia feel to it that perfectly suits the grainy, sepia-toned photo that I'm using (not that I'm trying to disguise the terrible image quality of my phone camera, of course). It may also be the smallest bar in Wellington - even smaller than Minibar (although I've never been inside there: it's always full of real estate agents). Just enough room for a handful of tables and chairs, with the bar itself tucked into a snug corner, an old piano and guitar along one wall, and a silvery airplane sculpture flying overhead.

It's not a stand-alone bar, being attached to another establishment, but I'm sure they wouldn't turn you down if you walked in off the street and asked for a drink. It's not a cocktail bar, and it really only has a tiny selection of wines and beers, though it does include some very tasty choices (like Hoegaarden Verboden Vrucht). It tends to get packed for very brief periods of time before emptying out again.

I doubt that this will be any more obscure than the previous mystery bar, so I hope that we get some new ones opening soon!

It's The Pit - still in my Top 5 after at least 5 years.

Where's the Pit? he asked showing his limited knowledge of Wellington bars.
