Motel Bar is a tropical tiki oasis hidden away down Forresters Lane, in Wellington's city centre, serving up delicious and elaborate island-style contemporary cocktails.
Motel is an exclusive lounge bar that's done up like a 50s New York Jazz Club - it has nothing to do with cheap overnight accommodation!
Jazz and hip contemporary urban sounds add to the chic, leather-and-carpet ambiance, but it's the cocktails, from a list sporting some 200 of them, that really hit the mark.
All the classics are there but they also regularly excavate forgotten favourites. The mood is refined and dry, with shades of the grande dame hotels of yesterday.
