As the name suggests, this is a double-deck boat which appears to be permanently moored. I believe it's drinks only, but you may take your own food aboard if you so desire. Limited range of wines, but most adequate for us. The "Floating BAR" is well maintained and very clean. Service is first class.

Sat bang in the middle of the walk to the harbour, it is a great location. It is a bar you are invited to eat your own snacks but there are no hot drinks. The location is perfect, the prices are the best around and ypu can sit on top deck outside or as it gets cooler great atmosphere inside

Sure, it's cool to have a drink on a docked boat. The top of the boat has a nice lounge area and covered seating. However, it was tight to get in and out of the bar, and honestly, our drinks were pricey for the strength and size of them. Just not sure if it was worth it. Maybe I would have liked it more on a less busy day or if I'd gotten something different, but the sangria I got was fine and the cocktail my husband got tasted really weak. It's just okay as bars go.

Such an amazing place; the view of the sunset is simply amazing... Fraser, the late-night bar-tender, more than added to moment! Highly Recommend this place to anyone visiting, and we learned that Fraser won the cutest bartender in Queenstown three years in a row. The atmosphere was great to meet friends and that we did!

Had time to kill whilst girls went to spa so blokes went for a few beers.

This is a nice place - does decent pints (rather than 400ml) which was good.
