Rooftop bar Queenstown

Rooftop-grade: 5/10
Prime season: Nov-March
Residents: 15 850
Climate: oceanic

Just a small town, Queenstown is only the 27th largest urban area in New Zealand. So one can not expect any high-rise skyscrapers, and therefore the Queenstown rooftop bars are at a low altitude. All located within walking distance in the small city center, and many with majestic views over the surrounding mountains and Lake Wakatipu.
