Drinks at the LibraryMy go-to spot for after-work drinks is the Library in Wellington, and no, not the public library. Right on Courteney Place, there is a nondescript sign reading "The Library" in front of a simple doorway with several staircases. If you know what to look for, you head up the stairs and at the top behind one of the doors you'll find the classy Library Bar. Decked out with books from floor to ceiling, cozy red chairs reminiscent of college libraries around the world, and a cocktail menu that will blow your mind, the Library is the hip spot in town for drinks.
