Cru Bar at The Hilton Queenstown is a prefect pre dinner escape right over the water on Kelvin Peninsula. Sleek, sophisticated oozing dark reds and black interior it is a haven of the best cocktails in New Zealand.
It was my first escape out of the house post baby so I wanted to sink into some leather, gaze at the view (not think about baby and feeding) and sip a gorgeous cocktail or
I can’t resist bubbles though and so had to have one of my favourite Cloudy Bay Pelorus NV.
Feeling slightly like James Bond (but you know Jane Bond with a bit of baby food all down my top) we ordered at the bar from the extensive drinks list and settled in to one of their huge leather chairs facing the water. A wonderful selection of local and NZ art adorn the walls and people chatter in whispers as they too enjoy the view.
I absolutely love heading over to Kelvin Heights in the evening. Sunsets a plenty, waves lapping the shore and you’re safe in the knowledge there’s nowhere else in the world you’d rather be.
It’s cozy, it’s comfy and for one moment it’s a mile away from real life.

I was a guest of Cru Bar but as always my views and opinions are always vehemently my own.
