This bar is a sultry blend of dark woods, dim lighting and some of best cocktails you’ll be able to get your mitten-covered hands on after a chilly day up the slopes.

The wine cellar is extensive – as you’d expect in a classy establishment such as this – with a special emphasis placed on local Pinot Noirs.

Whereas most of Queenstown’s bars are dedicated to big, crazy nights out, Bardeaux is a centre of calm. Gathering around the big fire, and sipping on your favourite cocktails feels like a proper holiday, even if you’re a local.
