A craft beer bar situated alongside Glover Park, Rogue and Vagabond is all about live music, hand made pizzas and a great sociable atmosphere to accompany your local craft brew. And the R&V mascot Kafka the Boxer is usually kicking around to keep you company too.

Rogue’s craft beer bar status is apparent, with 18 rotational taps showcasing everything from local micros to national crafties. Pints are well priced and can be accompanied with some casual Rogue staff chat.

Live music four nights a week showcases everything from local acoustic to twelve-piece brass. There are tables up front in the action or a well-suited outdoor smoking area which also sees everything overflow onto the park grass in summer – at this point there is nowhere better to be. Plus a chilled lounge area that also exhibits as a gallery with different, local artists showcasing their work for month-long periods.

Rogue’s food is exactly what you want from a place with great banter, live music and beer, massive freshly made pizzas, burgers, salads and their jalapeno curly fries are defiantly worth a nudge. Plus you'll enjoy the guilt-free free range meats on offer.

Rogue prides itself on being a Living Wage Employer.

It's a great spot for meeting friends, socialising or just watching the Wellington crowd do their thing.
