Pre/Post Venue

Muskets & Moonshine

Nobody in history was more straight up and down than Queenstown’s early settlers. These were men and women who were there to work hard, seeking their fortune in gold from the Shotover River. Thanks to this rush of industry and growth in population, from 1862 onwards our town sprang into life, and along came the traders of goods and providers of services…like publicans.

Our building has a long history as a venue of trade so it’s only natural this is where we find the inspiration for Muskets and Moonshine.

The rustic simplicity of Muskets and Moonshine perfectly represents these pioneering beginnings of Queenstown and exemplifies some of our key points of difference.

We’re here to provide a relaxing, comfy spot for food, drinks and catch ups.  Our Musket Mezzanine with adjoining balcony is an ideal social space for intimate gatherings, birthdays and pre/post-wedding events for up to 50 guests. The Mezzanine offers exclusivity to you and your guests with the opportunity for you to customize the space to perfectly compliment your event.  Our Moonshiners could even cook up a small batch of hooch bespoke to you to really get the party going.
