Bars in Wanaka

Bars in Queenstown typify the vibrant nightlife of this city. A Mecca for adventurers of all ages, Queenstown is well equipped with dozens of bars and nightclubs, from busy and cheap, to more select and sophisticated.

Queenstown Bars have distinct characteristics. The young crowd will stay in the CBD, where they'll find 'fun pubs' like Altitude, Surreal and The Buffalo Club. For something different, try Minus 5 Ice Bar (take a coat...) or the intimacy of Minibar. For cocktails, head to Skybar, and for nostalgia, you can't beat Ballarat Trading Co. or Eichardt's. 1876 is a great place to try on the Village Green area with great value food and cracking prices for drinks.
