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.

1. Cowboys

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.

2. 1876

Favourable for its frequent drink offers, 1876 is a good place to start your night and hang out with friends. It’s also a good place to grab some cheap eats. Find out more in our Cheap Eats in Queenstown guide.

3. Winnies

In contrast to 1876, Winnies is a good place to end your night out in Queenstown. The place gets busy in the early hours of the morning when people just want to dance!

4. Zephyr

Into your rock music? Zephyr is a small venue with big tunes. Live music is often played here too, which makes Zephyr an awesome place to discover some local music.
