Queenstown’s Must-visit Bars
Queenstown is not only the “Adventure Capital of the World” but it seems to be competing for party capital too. The town centre is pretty much made up of bars so if you haven’t got time to check them all out, we have whittled it down to our favourite five! Here it is, some awesome bars in Queenstown!
Remember, New Zealand is very strict on only serving alcohol to those with valid ID. Check out What ID is Valid for Buying Alcohol in New Zealand? to find out more.

This themed bar is home to a bucking bronco, huge stuffed animals, table games, saddle bar stools, and litre handles of beer! Cowboys is usually pretty busy so don’t be shocked if you have to queue to get in, especially during the winter season.
