Welcome to Barluga.

Positioned on the main street of our beautiful town the venue could not be more central and easily accessible.

Quiet and relaxed by day and into the early evening, Barluga quite literally comes alive as the sun sets. Live DJ’s fill the courtyard with music each Friday and Saturday night into the early hours, and the two open fires illuminate the whole lane. The scene is set as you enter Post Office Lane, overhead lights twinkle and vines create a romantic outdoor ceiling. We boast two huge outdoor roaring fires, with deep luxurious leather furniture and sturdy wooden tables to ensure comfort for guests of all ages.

The drinks list itself boasts a range of classic and signature cocktails, many containing spirits sourced from right here in the Cardrona Valley. You’ll notice the wine list has been hand selected from the generous bounty of top quality choices available to us in the Central Otago region, and is influenced heavily by local vineyards.
