Nestled just below the peak of Karangahape road, this sizable building appears something of a 2 storied house or apartment with little indicating it is a classic venue that has played host to hundreds of fantastic events, including the the sell-out Nice 'n' Urlich show on Queens birthday weekend.

In the main ballroom, a very special Galatos concert commences featuring 2 bands with incredibly bright futures. Featuring a racket of regarded DJ's holding fort either side of the live acts with their tunes diversifying the night ranging from tropical techno, UK house, garage, drum n bass, breaks and other live, creative creations.

Upstairs with a larger bar area, the lounge has a classic surrounding and cozy vibe, perfect for a break from the party and a good spot to mingle. Extra bathrooms are a convenience for upstairs guests also.

The Essential Tremor (Live)

Five musicians, each bringing their own flavour and style to this genre-twisting, unique music experience. The Essential Tremor has a foundation of Drum n Bass and Rock, an energetic, fresh sound, built with soulful melodies and brutal beats. The boys host a tight, high-energy and fierce live performance backed up with stunning visuals, which has been filling venues, and receiving epic reviews from anyone that has made it to a gig.

Panther Claw (Queenstown) (Live)

Panther Claw are Luke Leaf - vocals/synths/samples and Reuben Pearce - drums/vocals. A live two-piece wall of sound based around the driving bass-lines and beats of dance music fused with the energy and rawness of post-punk.

As a two piece band what Panther Claw lack in band members they make up for with pure bristling energy! From the first synth note there's an electric tension crackling through the PA system. Driven by the electro-clash bass-lines of Leaf and the heavy right foot kick stomp of Pearce, their shows have a 'what's going to happen next?' vibe and are filled with epic build-ups and euphoric releases that keep the dance floor packed and bouncing!

Inspired by the geek-core of LCD Soundsystem, the Belgian swagger of Soulwax and the post dub step sounds of James Blake, Panther Claw stand out in the Queenstown music scene as unique and original. With one single released and a live set packed with hook filled crowd pleasers, Panther Claw look ready to take a swipe at the future of the New Zealand music scene.

“Look out for this prowling beast of a band at a venue, stage or festival near you!” - Joe Cowie (Little Massive/ The Killer Seas)"

Limited to 400 capacity.

Special thanks to Galatos for extending a warm welcome.
