About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   I planned a surprise 40th Birthday Party for my partner at 1789 Wine & Jazz Lounge at Sofitel this July and I can't possibly recommend them enough. It was so perfect in so many ways. From friendly attentive staff to the cool french decor and thoughtfulness from my very first call to the end of the event. Ashlee & Susannah were super helpful and friendly and really went out of their to way to make sure that everything was planned accordingly. They even made a signature cocktail and printed out an adorable description of the drink with a picture of my partner. Throughout the evening, they made sure everyone was happy and enjoying themselves. Our guests raved about the tapas as well as the fantastic cocktails and how awesome the staff were; which made me look really good! :) I was really nervous, hoping desperately that everything would work out as planned. Julie was instrumental on the night of the event along with the wonderful gentleman who arrived with 2 of the signature cocktails and handed them to us as we walked in the door. Just Wow! I originally struggled to find a venue in Queenstown with people not getting back to me; or when they did respond it was without any type of care or customer service. So when I reached out to 1789 it was like a breath of fresh air and I immediately knew this was the place for this special event. Even if you simply pop in for a glass of Bordeaux or a hand made cocktail, it's absolutely worth it. Thanks again to the whole Rockstar Team at 1789 & Sofitel Queenstown!!!
