"Makes me feel fine", great place to take in the sights, the sounds on the wharf, enjoy byo food, chill & chat. Would be so, so, so good, if there was onboard accommodation. Team Perky's, kool people, place & setup.

What a great place! Bar tender was very chill and friendly. Awesome concept. We brought our dinner on board and brought a couple drinks here. Beautiful views. Highly recommend. Thanks Perky’s team 😊

Perfect spot to either have a drink or BYO food. Suited us perfectly for a few evenings. We brought in takeaway from Takoshi for adults and devil burger for boys. The devil burger and drink deal is superb! $20 for any burger and fries and...house wine or beer! The view is stunning and Aperol spritz a fab drink to enjoy while watching the sun go downMore

We enjoyed a really lovely glass of wine overlooking the lake & mountains which was just breathtaking. Only given 4 stars as we both commented that the bartender wasn't particularly friendly, but would certainly recommend the place for a drink.

First run into the concept of BYO food in Australia thought it was a great concept and can cater to a variety of budgets. Perkys has the advantage of being on the Queenstown water front with great views and a great place to people watch...with a lot of activity going on. I noted that Devil Burger advertised and would deliver free to Perkys there may have been others doing the same. If it got a bit rough the boat tended to rock around a little, my wife is prone to seasickness so we picked our moment. Again would put into one of the must does in QueenstownMore

Friendly service and nice little set up with tables or beanbags for a drink under the sun. Area is a little squished so not suitable for large groups.

What a great concept. Drinks on a boat without the risk of seasickness. for those who have that problem this is the bar for you😊 Perry’s Floating Bar in Queenstown is a wee gem. And the view from the top deck is divine. The drinks...are also very reasonably priced. A must do in QueenstownMore

Excellent place. Enjoyed delicous ferg burger under warm heater with sun setting over Lake Wakatipu. Plenty of seating and great to see local brews available loved the Ginger Bear.

What a gem of a place! Friendly service, love that you can bring your own food on board too. Great place to sit and relax and watch the world go by, there's also heaters on the top deck too so you won't be cold. Will...definitely visit again on our next trip to QT.More
