The “Friendliest bar on the planet”

& three times winner of the Nelson Bay’s ‘Wild Tomato’ Hospitality “Best Bar” award.

Opened in September 2006 thanks to Dave Manera, David Burr and Craig Lines all realising a dream of creating a very special local bar for people to experience great Kiwi hospitality while experiencing amazing Kiwi drinks and live entertainment

Situated at 75 Bridge street in sunny Nelson, New Zealand, Liquid NZ bar has continually evolved  into the special bar and meeting place we have today

We pride ourselves on providing regulars and visitors to Nelson a wonderfully friendly and particularly stylish and safe central entertainment and drinking spot.

Check out our Host Responsibility policy here.

We also like to share the best of Nelson & New Zealand with you when you visit Liquid NZ bar. From the freshest fruit and the finest local wines, beers, spirits and delicious award winning cocktails.

With a diverse, contemporary menu, an extensive beverage list and Nelson’s best cocktails it’s just the spot to gather friends, family or colleagues to enjoy the finest in Nelson Bay’s hospitality.

Amazing live music, fun events and lots of dancing with a glass of fine wine, cider or award winning cocktails, or a spirit or two from our impressive collection – this is how many a fine Nelson evening is spent.

Open Monday to Sunday, from 7pm until late

We take our responsibility to the environment seriously.  You can find out more about what we do towards being “green” here.
