Surreal has been going strong now since 1997.
Its owner, Melissa Stadler (Mel), wanted to create a total night out with a mosaic of flavours and entertainment all under one roof, from lunch, dinner through to late-night grooves.
Anything goes at Surreal – the choice is yours. Relax and lounge with a cocktail, have a glass of wine, beer or one of our many spirits in our couch area. Catch up with friends and experience intimate or group dining in our restaurant. Dance the night away with an array of local, national and international entertainment acts.
Our food over the years has evolved with our guests. From Chef’s Choice to Classic Favourites, to Design Your Own Meal, we have done out best to ensure that all tastes are catered for. Winner of Monteith’s Wild Food Challenge for two years running our, our menu is based around classic dished with a twist and loaded with flavour.
Don’t expect to hear the same music style every night at Surreal. Basically anything goes from House, Electro, Breaks, Drum & Bass, Hip Hop, Live Jazz, Rock and Dub. Surreal was the pioneer of dance music in Queenstown and has housed and promoted virtually all of New Zealand’s up and coming artists. It is also regularly on the touring circuit for international DJs.
What we want to provide to you is the total experience, and you can be confident that we will delivery.
