Step away from the Courtenay Place riff-raff into a unique and intimate nightlife experience. From 4pm until at least midnight Tuesday to Saturday nights, join us at Poquito for colourful cocktails, delightful tapas and an atmosphere like nowhere else in Wellington.
Our guys provide one of the top cocktail experiences in Wellington. Complied with a substantial knowledge of all kinds of alcohol, lovingly prepared tapas, an ever-growing Whisky selection and witty banter, we highly recommend you search us out and give it a go.
