Novel floating bar. Cozy winter venue inside with upstairs seating which is a little breezier. Good atmosphere and a fun place to hook up with friends. Regular drink prices, good service and something different for a change 😃

Queenstown & New Zealand's only floating bar and coffee shop. Enjoy a hot or cold drink on the water with stunning views with fantastic friendly service. Our vessel is immaculate with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. So regardless of what the weather you will be very comfortable. Come down and see for yourself, I guarantee you will love it as much I do.
