Pubs, Bars & Nightlife in Great Lake Taupo

During weekends, holidays and the summer season you’ll find plenty of excuses to dance the night away with top New Zealand bands and DJs jazzing up Great Lake Taupo's nightlife. Or round up some mates and catch an All Blacks game playing on big screens in our sports bars or pubs then head out later to one of our lively bars and nightclubs.

Download the Great Lake Taupo Foodie Trail brochure (or pick one up at the i-SITES) for our picks of the must-visit drinking establishment in the region.
