A hidden gem which is slightly hard to find. It is behind Relish, up some steps. Seriously quirky, with vintage decor and mismatched furniture. Board Games and cheap drinks are extra pulling in points, great music being another huge bonus. Highly recommended to those who like that retro/antique feel, like you stepped back into your grandmothers house

We might have been early, but there was no excuse for dirty empties to be lying around while bored barmaid talked on her mobile phone. Drinks were exceedingly slow, perhaps the call was important ?and it turned out ingredients weren't available for 1 of the three. All surfaces were sticky... Perhaps someone had had a good night the night before?... More

Felt drawn to this as the name & previous reviews promised a good cocktail bar. The balcony had a toppled over umbrella & the whole place needed a good clean. No fruit or other garnishes in the cocktails when they eventually arrived. Very disapponted.

Love love love this bar!!! It's definitely THE place to go to in Wanaka for amazing cocktails, great and friendly service. It's right in the middle of the town with the view of Lake Wanaka. Very cozy, relaxing and funky! I went to meetup with some newly found friends. We're recommended by a local to go here and were told... More

Easily the best bar in wanaka. Knowledgable, world class staff and great atmosphere. If you're after something other than the average then lala seems to cater for all tastes.
