The Mexican Way

Queenstown’s only dedicated agaveria Little Mez has a reputation for its impressive range of premium, authentic tequila and mezcal varietals sourced directly from Mexico.

Opened in July 2022 by the award-winning Future Hospitality Group the sophisticated, speakeasy style basement bar is tucked away in Cow Lane and is a popular addition to Queenstown’s nightlife.

Little Mez has an indulgent drinks menu with signature cocktails including a Spicy Mezcal Margarita with Tajin chili lime seasoning rim and Pineapple Barbacoa served in Little Mez signature bottles and is a smoky take on an Old Fashioned. “Our passion for agave-based spirits drives everything we do and we love sharing our creations,” says site manager Stu  Campbell. “The bar has a dark and bougee vibe accented with DJ’s playing an ambient mix of soul tunes and a dedicated vinyl DJ every Sunday night.”

“Our mixologists are passionate and knowledgeable and we have over 120 varieties of tequila and mezcal on offer, some are the only bottles you’ll find in New Zealand. We encourage guests to try our trust the bartender option, tell us their favourite spirit and flavour style then sit back and watch the magic happen.”

Little Mez attracts people from discerning drinkers looking for an expert agave inspired cocktail to date night couples and guests looking for pre and post dinner drinks when dining upstairs at Margo’s.  “It’s an excellent spot to pull up a late night stool and enjoy our chilled vibes and the world’s very best mezcal infused creations.”
