There is no need to worry about a thing, we take care of it. Our staff will be strategically positioned at any twist and turn to make sure you get from club to club in a fun and safe way.

What sort of identification do I need? Do I need to bring my passport?

Legally, you are expected to bring a NZ driving license, NZ 18+ card or your Passport. If you are an Aussie or Brit & don’t trust yourself with your passport (Who does?), there are no guarantees, but most of the bouncers can use their discretion. That is, if they are from the same country or worked as a bouncer in that country, you can usually use your own country’s driver’s license. Don’t give them a reason to say no, smile, don’t act tipsy & always be polite.

What happens if we are late?

Don’t fear, we are in the first bar for 45 minutes. We know you girls like to take your time, and we don’t want anyone to be stressed! After all, we are here to have a great time!

What am I allowed to wear? Is there a dress code?

Pretty much anything goes in terms of dress code in Queenstown. We’ve never seen anyone get refused with flip flops/jandals/thongs on but, to be safe, we recommend you stick to enclosed shoes. Just in case there is any glass on the floor.
