The money shots are so tasty I wish they made them in a cocktail as well!! It's the only place that has hookah here, it's not the best but at least they have it! The staff is super friendly. It's super small and often very quiet but I always enjoy going to Barup!

Sweet little bar with lovely staff. A must try is their money shot. We had a fair few and they were so yummy! Worth a call into.

During a bar crawl, my cousin who lives in Queenstown recommended the money shot so we all went up to the totally dead tiny bar. We were the only ones in there and I tried the shot. Nothing spectacular, just a shot full of cream and sugar.

Dont miss this hidden bar if you are going out in Queenstown. It`s really small and i mean really small but cosy. Just tried there famous money shot and yes it was quite special. Would love to have the secret recipe to make some Christmas shots :)

Cute little hidden away bar with a nice balcony to sit and drink on. The money shots are yummy as are the solero cocktails.

This had been by far the coolest bar I've been in Queenstown. This barman with tattoos went above and beyond his call of duty and was brilliant. His name was Jorge perhaps. Brilliant x

Had a grab one voucher for a cocktail degustation - out choice of 2 cocktails and as a finale a "Money Shot" - the ladies behind the bar were great, the cocktails fantastic. Great night!

We came here with great expectation but we were disappointed. Let me say the girls behind the bar were awesome. They were friendly and very entertaining. The drinks themselves I found very over priced. I love cocktails but this just didn't hit the spot.
