Head down late in the afternoon or early evening to take advantage of the happy hour drinks. Serious savings can be made!

1876 is a relaxed bar and restaurant in a gorgeous historic building in central Queenstown.  This converted former Magistrate's Court provides a welcoming and fun atmosphere with original features like the judge's bench & holding cell!

Fantastic food, full bar, sun deck, great atmosphere and awesome service make this bar a must-see in Queenstown.

1876 Bar & Restaurant takes its name from the date of the building's construction.  It was built from the local rock (known as schist) that often contained gold - the very industry upon which Queenstown was built. Today, the building is being used for trials of leisure, rather than justice.

Soak up the atmosphere of this heritage building and enjoy friendly and efficient service.  1876 Bar & Restaurant offers great deals on a fabulous range of beers, wines and spirits. 

There's also delicious food and a kid's menu available all day, so everybody's happy.  Dine inside, or outside on the sizzling sun terrace, where you can watch the rest of the world go by.


1876 Bar & Restaurant also offers flexible function space, whether it's a business lunch, event launch or lively social occasion.  Ask about the range of set menus, gourmet platters and BBQ options on offer.  There's really no better place to make your event stand out, than in one of Queenstown's oldest buildings.

Please visit 1876 Bar & Restaurant for bookings.
