Perfect little spot to drop by to have a bevy or a vino on the water. Staff always so cheery. Best thing is, you are welcome to bring your own mean feed. Take a cake from Ferg bakery, a bagel or Eric’s fish and chips...More

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.
