Really relaxed atmosphere, great gin selection and the bartenders are happy to give advice on what mixes well. Comfy chairs and beautiful views of the lake

As a lover of a good G'n'T I was drawn by both the name and the 6-7pm Gin hour. Unfortunately that was as far as my excitement went. While the interior had a lovely laid back vibe of comfy chairs and old fashioned decor the...More

Thank you for your feedback. It seems you were unfortunate enough to come just as a large function had finished and left. Its a shame that you did not hang around to experience some of our lovely gin and if you had approached the bar...More

The premise was good but sadly it didn't quite deliver. The bar fit out is great and the deck views are lovely. However it is let down by poorly trained bar staff who try hard but can't function at the required level.

What a hidden Gem in Wanaka. Take the chance and walk up those stairs. Its a delightful little (big area) bar with the best views of the Lake - amazing sunsets. Lovely friendly staff. We went back 3 times during a 4 night stay.

These guys have wonderful knowledge of some very very good cocktails. Also some nice nibble selections. Wonderful views over the lake while you taste the delights. Of course the Gin and Raspberry is a must for a starter.

Wanaka has a salsa club that meets at the Gin and Raspberry on Thursday nights (this could change so it is wise to check). The flyer indicates there is a salsa lesson followed by dancing. We went for just the dance. There is a real...More

Staff are very unpleasant, cocktails are nit filled up of poured evenly. Also found out after we brought drinks, that we could not even have them outside which was the whole point of going there. Bar is too big for the setting and lacks atmosphere....More
