Nightlife in Queenstown

Queenstown Nightlife is buzzing, lively and most of all fun. There's a decent choice of both dedicated bars and restaurant-bars all easily found within a short distance of each other in the centre of town. Stylish cocktail bars are a great place to relax and soak up the setting. Craft beer specialist pubs will find favour with those looking to combine fine beer with casual dining. 

The nightlife in Queenstown caters for any type of night out. There are Irish bars, Ice Bars, waterfront bars, floating bars on the lake, wine bars, live music bars and sports bars to enjoy those big sporting events. There's also a good choice of late night bars, so party goers will not be disappointed.
Nightlife in Queenstown is never dull. Many bars, particularly along Shotover Street, are open until the early hours.  The Steamer Wharf and Lake Esplanade area is a little more genteel, with some fantastic restaurants and swish cocktail bars to tempt you.
