There is no town or village at Cardrona so your options are limited to the resort facilities. Most visitors will stay in accommodations in Queenstown and maybe a few may even stay in Wanaka where you can find many dining and nightlife options.

Cardrona Bars, Night Life and Activities:

There is no nightlife at Cardrona. Queenstown is a local epicenter of pubs, restaurants and bars where nightlife flourishes.

Queenstown at night

Downtown Queenstown has plenty of restaurants and bars to explore.
