Bar Number 8 serves delicious cocktails and drinks in Wanaka with the best view in town

Not your average cocktail bar

Sip on your pre-dinner cocktail whilst taking in the best views of Lake Wanaka and the Southern Alps from our iconic rooftop bar terrace. Get in cosy by the fire as one of our bartenders shakes up your favourite classic cocktail or try one of our ever-changing in-house creations. Wind down with a game of pool and a beer in our rustic backroom. Come down for a boogie to enjoy a host of top local musicians or have a look at our events page for upcoming gigs. Bar Number 8 is the perfect spot to wind down your day.

Alongside our extensive back bar, we stock an array of local wines showcasing New Zealand wine making at its best. Our beer taps change regularly to get in some of the most exciting seasonal craft beers from local breweries. We also have an extensive range of spirits to create your new favourite cocktail.
