Rhino's Ski Shack

Hidden away in a basement off Queenstown Mall and Cow Lane, Rhino’s Ski Shack is a real local’s secret. Join us downstairs and be transported into authentic European Après lifestyle with a kiwi twist. Featuring a handcrafted fit out, sourcing local materials and talent, this alpine themed bar is typical après in style, with chopped logs and vintage skis versus cutting edge photography, street art, and funky music.

Open year-round, we’ve always got something fun happening but our soft-spot is for winter, where we are host to Queenstown’s best Après Ski sessions.  With ski & board storage available, come in straight from the ski fields and try our signature warm-up drinks, including a secret recipe mulled-wine and a Hot Buttered Rum worth writing home about.

By day, Rhino’s Ski Shack is great for unwinding and socializing in a no-pressure atmosphere, so grab your crew and gather around our long tables to take advantage of our games available for everyone to play while our staff come to you to keep your glasses full. Famous for our legendary Caesar, egg-nog shooters and all-day everyday $5 beers, we promise you’ll find something on the menu you’ll love.

By night, watch Rhino’s Ski Shack transform into Queenstown’s only Hip-hop bar, featuring DJs spinning the best beats in town.  Make sure you get down early, because the dance floor is unbeatable on a night out.
