Queenstown gains a taste of QT

Scheduled to open in the third quarter of this year, QT Queenstown Hotel is claimed to be the first five star design-driven hotel to emerge in Queenstown.

Designed by Nic Graham, styled by Anna Roberts, with costumes by Janet Hine and art curated by Amanda Love, QT will consist of 69 larger boutique designer suites and a new hotel dining experience. QT will provide an immersive designer hotel experience complemented by its now open new dining concepts – Bazaar Interactive Marketplace and Reds Bar.

The hotel’s signature restaurant, Bazaar, reinterprets the traditional hotel dining concept with unparalleled views of Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu and the surrounding mountain ranges including the iconic Remarkables mountain range.

 It showcases an international mosaic of foods providing Queenstown locals and guests alike with a selection of seafood, cheese and charcuterie bars, Asian and grill stations, authentic Italian woodfired pizzas, and to finish a dessert bar bursting with house-made creative sweets and pastries.

Reds Bar offers an extensive cocktail list and a contemporary living space that is a mixture of nostalgic alpine and après ski ambiance with equally impressive views. Custom furniture including Eames-era chairs, painting and pops of bold colour are some of the unmissable design highlights.
