Description: 1876 Bar and Restaurant is a distinctive & much valued landmark of Queenstown.The old stone courthouse building was erected between November 1875 and September 1876. The Old Courthouse is one of the few structures that survive from Queenstown's early gold mining days. Now over 130 years on 1876 offers an upmarket menu, relaxed atmosphere, great service & friendly staff. With the option of indoor and outdoor dining 1876 is definitely the place to be. During the winter season we will have live music between Wednesday and Sunday nights.

During my tikitour of Queenstown there was one place that stood out amongst the rest, this of course was 1876. Walking into the place i instantly fell in love with the music and design of the place. What made this better was the staff behind the bar dancing along with me to the amazing music. After getting our drinks we went outside were we met even more amazing staff including the bouncers and most of important of all the manager Craig. When you see the manager putting in the hard yards whipping down all the tables it really means something to a fellow hospitality worker. Not only was he good at his job he was good at keeping a good yarn flowing. Highlight of my night. #UpTheCraig

Went in on a Friday evening only to be served by a lovely young man that went by the name of Craig. Very cheap drinks and very good customer service. 1876 it's self had some great music and the vibes were pumping 10/10 from me. #upthecraig

Best to say best pub we stopped into... not only did they have theist quenching drinks on tap but they had NRL love for us to watch...
waking up early on our last day in ZQN, we hit the slopes snow boarding and got first tracks.. (6hrs later) having some time before our flight 2100 we headed back into twin freshened up and stopped into 1876 after walking past many times thought we better tick it off and wow wish we stopped in sooner.
Staff were lovely and so accommodating having put the TV on for us :) and NRL "EVEN BETTER"
Would highly recommend this place for all as seemed very kid friendly too. I mean we don't have kids but love being around them so well done :)
Have to say great prices as well and food was perfect thank you 1876

Who can walk past a bar with $5 drinks and $10 cocktails with a buzzing atmosphere and not go in?? We came back everyday!

Bar 1876 has a great outside heated area, ideal for watching the passing parade of Queenstown folk and tourists. With happy hour prices from 4-6pm daily it won't break the bank and the service is friendly. Didn't try the food, but it looked good.
