Had an after dinner drink at Perkys Bar. Can bring your own food. My daughter wanted a hot chocolate which wasn't available but we were told we could go and get one and bring it back. Very small and casual.

Perky's is a perfect spot to have an afternoon mulled wine or hot chocolate while watching the activities in the lake. You can also bring your own food on board.

Hi, we are located right in the centre of town on the water. If you head down to the lake in the downtown area it will become obvious to you. We are on the Million Dollar Cruise Jetty out the front of Absolute Backpackers... 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.
