Little Blackwood

meet me here.

We say ‘meet me here’ and you’ll soon understand why. Little Blackwood is a classic yet hip cocktail bar sitting perched within the famous Steamer Wharf, on the waters’ edge of Queenstown’s Lake Wakatipu. Touted by locals as the best bar in Queenstown! Take in the stunning vista’s whilst the sun sets on the heated decking, sipping on a drink and sharing one of our locally made artisan meat and cheese boards, and you too will be convinced.

If the stunning views of the Remarkable mountains isn’t quite your scene, nip inside, pull up a pew and settle in by our roaring fire and let some of New Zealand’s best live musicians entertain you. Accompany this with a delicious cocktail, Gibbston Valley wine or kiwi craft beer, and you’re set for a memorable night to say the least.
