We asked a couple of locals where to get a good cocktail and this place kept coming up. We ended up there in the twice after getting this recommendation due to the great cocktails, great bartenders and nice music. They are particular about the youngsters coming in and screwing up the vibe since they can't hold their alcohol. If I were in queenstown and wanted a drink I would come here.

With such a catchy name and great reviews, we were looking forward to checking out this bar. Unfortunately it has closed down, flooring and decorations have been torn out. We walked through to the attached pizza restaurant and confirmed that it has gone out of business.

As lovers of cocktails a lot of these ones were new, or at least extremely creative variations of existing ones. Highly flammable, very dangerous indeed!! Loved the drinks and cosy space. On the day that we landed in Queenstown, after checking in and getting our snowboards n gear sorted, my partner and I roamed the streets, had a few drinks and landed at The Naughty Penguin late in the evening for a nightcap. Lovely way to end the day of travel.

We'll return. Keep up the great work guys!

Fantastic service, loved the hole in the wall location and the drinks were delicious and exotic. The bartender really knew his stuff and clearly enjoyed his job which made the whole experience that much more special. Recommend 100%!!

We had a booking here in the evening so spent some time during the day looking for it, at first Cow Lane is not appealing but we were at the wrong end, what a little cute place. We had a gourmet pizza with a beer and wine, perfect way to end the day, good music playing and the hostess could not have been nicer, she was. Very helpful in suggesting the best value pizza and she was spot on. Would defiantly go back here and later in the evening. Awesome.

Lovely bar, really friendly bartender and slightly hidden from the main streets with great cocktails, a friendly vibe and nice atmosphere. Good music too. Not far at all of the main streets, 1 minute from beach street, but still has a hidden gem feel about it as it is down a lane. Also have snacks available and the bartender is more than willing to recommend some other great spots around town too.

WE just wanted a quiet drink before looking for a restaurant for dinner . The place doesn't shout its presence but what a welcome inside . Friendly not overbearing . No pressure. As we are from Liverpool no sooner as we spoke the barman introduced himself as coming from the same part of the world . Not always a good thing but in this case brilliant . We sampled the MOA . WE were brought accompanying glasses of water . Sampled an unusual spirit , all in all a very pleasant evening. I understand it can get busier later in the evening but as for us it was perfect . We will return if not just to try some of the unusual selection of world beers.

Great to have a drink where it's about the customers tastes and not what a flash bar wants u to drink. Not to be missed!!!

I came across this bar on tripadvisor and decided to check it out based solely on the reviews. Though it was a little off the beaten path, it was easily my favorite place in Queenstown and one of the best bar experiences I have had to date.

The Naughty Penguin is a very small venue on a side street in QT. However, this lends both an atmosphere of comfort and accessibility as well as an element of surprise. While being a small establishment, the talent behind the bar far surpasses anything you'd expect to find in an upscale five star mixer, much less an out-of-the-way pub. The heart and soul of the place revolves around two of the bartenders, Chase and Mikey. Both of these gentlemen are award-winning bartenders, but were still friendly enough to engage in good conversation and pass along what I'm sure amounted to a mere shred of their vast understanding of spirits. The first drinks I had were cocktails that, although commonly ordered, were made with such distinction and attention to fine details that the drink was elevated to include flavorings and characteristics I'd never before realized. Afterwards, I made the change to beer and was impressed to find such a wide assortment of local craft brews that really showcased a taste of NZ that I was unable to find anywhere else. Again, the bartenders took the time to describe the character and qualities of each beer while tying in cultural influences and such to keep it interesting to someone not as well versed as themselves.

In the end, what you have here is a great group of guys pursuing a craft they love and sharing it with others. My only disappointment is that I found out about them too late in my stay to go back for another round. Regardless if you are a connoisseur of cocktails, or just an average person looking for a laid back bar with local flavors, The Naughty Penguin is equally enjoyable.
