For a place as hilly and picturesque as Queenstown, it’s surprising that there are not many rooftop bars here. Which is why we love The Sundeck, located a couple of doors down and up a flight of stairs from its owner, The Bunker. It’s a little piece of the Hamptons in Central Otago, with white parasols and spectacular 360-degree views of the surrounding mountains and lake. Its crowd-pleasing menu, including salt and pepper squid with balsamic-infused rocket salad and Moroccan-spiced pulled pork sliders, is made for the setting – particularly when you have a Monteith's Summer Ale on hand to wash it all down.
