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.

2A & 2C. Hadn’t planned to eat here but due to the time we wanted to eat being in-between lunch and dinner and a number of other restaurants being unable to offer any food we decided to try 1876.

We were glad we ended up eating here. They were flexible enough to be able to get the chef to make up a few dishes for us. The service was friendly and happy to have a chat.

The drinks and cocktails were well poured and very tasty. The food was excellent and all of our dishes were well appreciated. Albeit it is not the cheapest place you will eat, we would definitely have returned to eat here again during “normal” restaurant hours but unfortunately it was out last day in QT.

My husband and I were honeymooning in Queenstown and decided to grab a drink before our dinner reservations. We decided to stop by 1876 because their happy hour offers looked pretty good. The bar is definitely a younger crowd feel and had great music going. We enjoyed ourselves so much we ended up back after our dinner for a more late night club feel. The tables and chairs were moved out and it seems to have a different but still fun atmosphere. If we are back in Queenstown we will definitely go back again.

We loved the service here and the atmosphere and found it to be great value compared to some of the places nearby and the prices of their drinks! The staff are really friendly and we had a great time by the outdoor heaters - loved it. Go to happy hour if you want the best value drinks in town

Generous outdoor area and a great place to have enjoy a beverage, especially when the sun is shining. Good selection of beverages to choose from at a very reasonable price. The staff were also very friendly and attentive. We will definitely we visiting 1876 next time we're in Queenstown.
