The Lodge Bar

Restaurants/ Bars

If you are looking for a classy kiwi experience or are an avid lover of the 'Rodd & Gunn' brand, this is the place for you!

With an uninterrupted view of Lake Wakatipu and the surrounding rocky peaks, The Lodge Bar is not only a regular destination for the locals but a must-see for visitors to Queenstown.

The space epitomises Rodd & Gunn’s rich heritage. From the oak floorboards, thick fur throws, and warm, moody atmosphere, it’s impossible not to relax in such a setting.

Settle into a leather armchair in front of a blazing fireplace with a bespoke cocktail in hand, and soak in your surroundings.

Aosta and Central Otago both lie on the 45th parallel, and the synergies between the regions terroirs are striking. The cuisine of Aosta is inspired by the cooking techniques of Northern Italy, paired with ingredients carefully selected from growers, breeders, suppliers and wine grown on the land around Central Otago and Arrowtown.
