I found out on Sunday that there is in fact a bar on board the former HMNZS Wellington, moored behind Te Papa.
In the helicopter bay, a lovely bar has been set up to help raise funds for SinkF69, the project to sink the frigate near Island Bay – which will make a good diving attraction.
Beer Man, Tory Girl, Angry Man and myself had a very pleasant time on the couches in the helicopter bay drinking Bennett’s Beer and staying warm in front of the heater. Not quite as warm as a toaster, but still very good.
It gets sunk in 104 days, so if you want to have a nice beer on board a frigate, get a move on!
