But, to kick it all off, we thought we’d give you a wee background story and tell you what we’re all about…

Little Blackwood, opened the doors in July 2015 at the water’s edge of Queenstown’s historic Steamer Wharf.  The space, previously known as The Boiler Room, underwent a complete brand overhaul and emerged as a fresh but classic bar and eatery with a modern twist… and the most Remarkable views in town.

It didn’t take long for the locals to take notice, enjoying our creative cocktail list, seasonal menu of local wines, and selection of craft beers on our waterside deck.  Our artisan cheese & meat platters quickly made a name for themselves and onto everyone’s “Queenstown Must-Do” lists, then the word got around town that our Espresso Martini was to die for… and the rest is history.

Have you tried Little Blackwood’s famous Espresso Martini yet?

Fast forward to 2017 and the number of accolades is continually growing; from Espresso Martini recognition on, to two Finalist positions as “Best New/Redeveloped Bar” and “Best Bar” at Hospitality New Zealand’s Awards for Excellence, and even a spot on the list of the World’s Best Bars.

Needless to say, we’re very proud of what Little Blackwood has become in such a short amount of time.  Our quest to create Queenstown’s Best Bar will never end-  we just hope you can join us along the way.
