    We went to The Winery in Arrowtown as part of the hop on Hop off tour and what a hidden gem it was- we had walked past it the previous day and had no clue it was there!
    It has 100s of wines abd you can choose to taste as many as you like with the chip card they give you. Choose the wines you taste; with the simple push of a button you can serve yourself either a taste, half or full glass. There were 5 Chardonnays and 4 Sav Balncs the day we were there. Relax and unwind in the comfort of the leather lounge chairs by the fire or sit outside while the sun shines.
    The staff are really friendly and helpful. You can do Gin and Whiskey tastings as well.

    It was pretty cool (excuse the pun). First time exploring Queenstown. Was great at the start because there was only 5 of us...then it got busy and you realise how small the space is. I think we managed to stay for 40 minutes. Cocktails were delicious. Would be great if you had a wall you could throw the cups to shatter. Throwing them in the box doesnt quite give the awesome affect of shattering ice. Overall great experience, but would have been better if not many people inside.

    Wonderful and friendly staff that had gone out of their way to gift-wrap a present my mom purchased from the shop for my mother in law - free of charge. The shop has beautiful decor with amazing jewellery, homewares, art, and clothing/accessories (which, I for one, would indefinitely visit again when I venture back to Queenstown).

    Overall, the shop is aesthetically pleasing with great presentation and organisation. The staff were attentive, kind, and super helpful. Thank you so much to the staff as we really appreciated the kind gesture, kia kaha.

    We stumbled across this bar and visited it for a quick drink. However after ordering our drinks they offered us a free pizza, one of the best I have tasted. Loved the authentic Cowboys decor and the Iron bucking bull, great night

    We booked this trip for the couple we were staying with whilst in QT as a thanks for their hospitality. Chris is a big beer drinker so we knew he'd love the opportunity to go out and visit some places without driving that were outside of Queenstown. His wife, Sharon we were slightly worried about as she doesn't like beer too much but the stops on this tour catered for both! She tried ginger beer, ciders and mulled wines and Chris got to taste lots of different beers because the exclusive offers that accompany the tour. A great way to spend an evening!

    Cool bar, just in front of the lake. Good beer selection and good food with lots of vegan/vegetarian options. My fish taco was quite average though.

    Amazing fun, great up stairs area. Staff were awesome and very helpful. Nice setting and cool bar. We hired topless waiters for our event and it was perfect for that, private and cool.

    We turned up really early 7pm after an early dinner. It was empty but there was a young local guy singing and playing guitar. We stayed for about an hour and a half and enjoyed the couch and the music. It gradually started to fill up. Cheap cocktails too!

    Beautiful and charming bar! I went for a dinner with friends on Thursday night and the service was very good. Rashima (not sure the spelling) and Michaela were lovely, checking on us, recommending the Cocktail of the Week and the Summer Wine! Rashima explained the menu, and recommended the signature dish, Chateaubriand! We loved it! Thank you for the lovely night!
