Poquito lies outside of the hustle and bustle of Courtney Place down the quieter side of Tory Street, breaking boundaries with craft cocktail service and eclectic whisky. We’re an atmospheric retreat for lunch with actual Kiwi hospitality, a salacious rendezvous with Caffeine and a spirit encyclopedia, all rolled into one. We are always in the lab creating new ingredients or researching old ones, but eschewing the stiffness of the classic cocktail bar in favour of relaxed, laid back service and effortless libations.
Our custom cocktail approach forswears any form of menu and employs conversation to design any drink for any moment in time. Our dynamic spirits selection is continually changing to reflect the best of the best of any different style. The whisky selection emphasises curated examples from important distilleries as opposed to the usual spread of generic age statements. Weekly live music from Wellington’s indie songwriting scene provides the perfect backdrop to meetings with friends or explorative nights out, and we encourage anyone with an instrument or an original to come on by and perform.
Poquito exists as a small family dream to provide international hospitality and knowledge with a truly Kiwi approach. To that end we keep a commitment to Wellington’s hospitality family – absurd family pricing will always be found here.
We get a real thrill to see people enjoy our food at Poquito. A lot of time and care goes into our fine baking.
At Poquito we strive to serve-delicious small dishes with fresh free-range local ingredients. Each portion is served with love for food. We are proud that our kitchen never closes so you can expect to match food of your choice to your preferred beverage. Poquito is a little place with a big heart.
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.
