Rocking on the boat is such a relaxing feeling especially with a drink or two with friends or families just to chill out. Love it!

Lovely staff, they have blankets too and really reasonably priced local wine which is great. Also serving mulled wine in the winter. would recommend.

The boat is laid out well and feels like a proper boat. Good selection of reasonably priced drinks and very friendly service. Sat on the top deck at dusk and watched Queenstown light up.

We had a drink here. What a unique concept. Lovely location. Friendly service. It is a good idea to take your own food of choice on board.

If you are in Queenstown, this place is a must go. Friendly service and cold beer on a boat overlooking the mountains.

Amazing location on the water, just by TSS Earnslaw, drinks on the top deck with a blanket and watch the sun go down. You can take your own food on there as well, not that we did. Its a must do in Queenstown.

Just popped on board for a quick drink after dinner. You can take your own take away food on board which is usually unheard of. (This bar doesn't serve food) A great find!

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.
