This intimate quiet bar offers a central place to meet with friends for a drink. The fire was roaring and a bit too warm to sit beside so we opted for a table towards the back , but still warm. Staff are cheerful and efficient

A roaring open fire, really comfortable leathers sofas, an extensive bar with about a dozen different gins, great music like Steve Ray Vaughan and Otis Reading.

Intimate venue with low lighting and huge open fire. Fabulous bar which is generously stocked and adds to atmosphere of this bluesy place. Impressive.

We went here later night. The staff was amazing and dealt with my group's ridiculousness from the very beginning. Excellent cocktails. If you tell them what alcohol and flavor you like, they will make you something excellent. We had a good time.

Bardeaux is a pleasant stylish bar tucked away near the center of Queenstown. It’s a nice getaway from a busy day to sit, relax, enjoy the fireplace, and have a drink. It’s dark and quiet inside.

Came here with my nan and a friend, we ordered a cheese board which came out very well presented. Enough for three people. Excellent service. Cocktails were on point too.

We dropped in here for a glass of wine, but left several hours later, after relaxing in front of the fire with some superb wines and a brilliant cheese board.

We loved the quiet, upscale vibe of Bardeaux before going to some more lively bars later in the evening. The cocktails are worth every penny, and the wine selection is good. If you go early on a cold night, you'll be able to grab a really comfortable chair by the fire and kick up your feet!

Description
An iconic bar and the perfect intimate venue to enjoy a true Queenstown experience...

This sumptuous up-market venue is all about service, the huge open fire, knowledgeable staff and great music. Bardeaux’s extensive wine and cocktail menu only adds to the elegant ambience. The range of local Pinot’s is eclectic, backed up by a cellar of vintage wines and champagnes. This bar is sultry and seductive; sitting among all the party and dance bars. Bardeaux is a haven for those who want a night out with friends or a relaxing wine by the big fire after a day on the slopes!
