Ive been to Wellington a few times now, how good is it! but ill never forget my first trip to the temperance. I knew I was onto a winner as I walked through the doors but I wasn't expecting a religious experience as I saw the crowd parting like the red sea.. Whats going on here I thought?? Next thing you know, through walk Umaga, Collins and Nonu. If its good enough for the All Black Captain its good enough for me!

Antics were the order of the evening and there were great times to be had. Four bars in the place means it caters for many many needs and there's plenty of room for adventure. I had a wander round and encountered a few highlights of the evening ranging from a hens night, to a 21st gathering, to chatting to a few guys about the game we played earlier in the day. I had a great time. I'm pretty sure most people knew i was having a good time too!!

From what i saw the people were all in a good mood and there was no trouble which can often happen in a big place. The bars were easy to access and the bartenders did their job. I thought it was choice at the time but come Sunday 11.34 a.m. the next day I wasn't the happiest camper in the world- you win some you lose some I guess. How big is the place!! crikey.. Made alot of friends and I had to too, i was a man on a mission and it could be said I was separated from the boys.

Ill be going back if they'll have me, management take a bow because they are doing good things and have created a great mixture of factors that create a first class establishment. I'm in love. Until we meet again temp.

Pretty sweet place, especially with the different levels. Most of the time it seems fairly busy but have been there a few times when its quite empty and didnt bother to stick around.
