Didn’t have the food - bar snacks only - but the choice of drinks, especially whisky, was excellent and not ridiculously expensive. Staff were knowledgeable and pleasant. Great atmosphere. Would definitely go back next time we are in Christchurch.

A quiet, cozy whiskey bar with a homey feel. Fantastic cocktails and the bartenders always provided great service every time that we went.

Loved having a hot toddy on a cold day. The bar is cosy and atmospheric. Wish we didn't have the car with us or we'd have stayed for the night.

This place has an amazing atmosphere. Was a cold chch night and it was warm and inviting inside. The inside is a mix of mish mash chairs, sofas and tables which was quaint and chic. I am a gin drinker and was amazed at the range of gin available and how they changed the tonic flavour to match the gin. Great service and will definitely be back.

I'll be honest, when you travel across the world to have a nice whiskey at what seems to be an amazing bar, but you're meet with hostility and rudeness, it makes you wonder how much longer this establishment can survive.

The atmosphere is good but the wait staff is not. I won't be returning to the Last Word when I return to Christchurch again.
