Right next door to the theatre. You can sit and enjoy a drink, whatever your preference may be, or grab it and take it into the cinema. They even have a terrace outside.

Our favourite spot to visit in Te Anau. Contemporary, classy, and very reasonably priced drinks. And the platters are also delicious! Love the Black Dog Bar.
