Hippopotamus

Strut in as proud as a peacock to be served flamboyant Parisian chic. Enter the eclectic world of a fabby French grandma who knows how to drink. Pops of colour on plush textures and a bevy of bedazzled chandeliers. Cuisine that’s made to match the ooh la la theme, we say santé! Come raise a glass where the refined get comfy. Hippopotamus is where we elevate you in Wellington dining elegance.

Named after the world’s giant aquatic ballet dancer, Hippo has a real taste of the majestic. Decadent degustation by multi award-winning chef Jiwon Do. French flavours pirouette with locally grown produce.

Sip in Harbour-view sparkle with wine to match the delicacies. We’re pouring green fairy-inspired cocktails for a night of liberté and vogue. By day, indulge in the strawberry shortcake and be treated to the exquisitely sweet. Golden hour breakfasts and high tea worthy of glamour royalty.

Now, for the first time in 13 years, Hippo is opening its exclusive cellar door to the public. One of New Zealand’s rarest wine collections, procured over the years by award-winning head Sommelier and manager Florent Souche, is now available for you to peruse for personal pouring.
