What do you get when you mix a master sommelier, a Michelin star chef and one of New Zealand’s most loved clothing brands together in the picturesque town of Queenstown?
A slice of luxury.
With an uninterrupted view of Lake Wakatipu and the surrounding majestic mountains, The Lodge Bar in Queenstown is the hospitality extension of the iconic Rodd & Gunn brand. Offering exquisite food and beverage all year round and capitalising on the freshest of local produce, Chef Matt Lambert has ensured The Lodge Bar is not only a regular destination for the locals but a must-see for visitors to Queenstown.
For all who have had the pleasure of flying into Queenstown, you will know the feeling of true relaxation when you step off the plane. The air is different, you are welcomed by the drama of the surrounding Remarkables, the pace is slower, and everyone is happy to be immersed in the Queenstown way of life.
The Lodge Bar has taken inspiration from their local roots and the heritage of the Rodd and Gunn brand – the sophistication of the build and the luxury of the interiors, the extensive wine list, the whiskey cabinet and fine fare is a true labour of love.
From the thick fur throws in front of the fire, to the leather armchairs with ample views of the lake, The Lodge Bar offers many spaces to enjoy fresh Te Matuku Oysters or a warming Gunner’s Game pie – and don’t be shy to ask for the perfect beverage pairing, Cameron Douglas MS has thoughtfully curated the drinks list to suit all palates.
So the next time you partake in a whirlwind trip to Queenstown, make time to wander lakeside and put your feet up amongst friends, let the staff order for you and watch the world meander by.
