Unique spot for a casual beer and you can bring your own food! Definitely recommend for a lunch on the water or dinner.

We grabbed a drink at Perky's before dinner and loved the chilled atmosphere on the floating bar. Service was good and efficient. Make sure you look into the water too, as you may be able to spot some local trout swimming around.

This bar is great. It’s very sensibly priced with great views and nice staff. It’s also a great idea to do BYO food, it meant we could take our food from the Ferg bakery and accompany it with a couple of nice drinks.

I reckon so, it is right on the waters edge by the inlet and although dependant on where the Council approve the fireworks to be set up; it would be out there over the lake

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.
