Wellington's iconic Backbencher pub will officially reopen tonight after it was hit last year by two devastating fires.

Politicians and political junkies are expected to flock to the politically-themed hangout.

A new puppet of New Zealand First MP Winston Peters is among the new ones expected to be unveiled.
