Featuring Louis Thompson-Munn

Thelonious Sphere Monk. His name alone evokes a certain expectation of what his music is. An American jazz pianist and composer, he had a unique improvisational style and made numerous contributions to the standard jazz repertoire. Monk's compositions and improvisations feature dissonances and angular melodic twists and are consistent with his unorthodox approach to the piano, which combined a highly percussive attack with abrupt, dramatic use of switched key releases, silences, and hesitations.

Join Wellington based pianist Louis Thompson-Munn as he delves into some Monk compositions for solo piano at Hashigo Zake.

Hashigo Zake

Since 2009 we've been doing what we think is important for a bar, even if that means defying conventions. That starts with selecting a diverse range of beer styles for our taps while keeping big, corporate brewers out. As a result we've been named the best bar in Wellington by the Society of Beer Advocates and the best bar in New Zealand by ratebeer.com multiple times.

We put our atmospheric underground location to good use and host superb music and comedy in our lounge. Hashigo Zake takes the provision of fine beer to new levels.
