The Boathouse

The Boathouse, Nelson

Located at 326 Wakefield Quay, The Historic Boathouse has enjoyed almost 100 years of gorgeous sunsets and spectacular water front views.

Saved from destruction by a Trust in the 90's it has grown to become a well loved place to go for dinner, lunch or a spot of Live music. Each Friday night the ol' BH Opens its doors for local & travelling acts to present their works and sell there wares.

Those who are lucky enough to secure a Friday slot will enjoy a cool sea breeze as it rolls over the lapping seas, across the large deck and into the 180 capacity main room where they will be setting up for their Show.
After a soundcheck, Performers will be treated to a tasty dish and a drop of their choice as the doors open to the regular Friday crowd of members, Meal & good-time-seekers.

Shortly after, the sun will set over the expansive Tasman bay lighting the sky in glorious colour, just as our lucky bandies take to the stage.

The Boathouse is open to applications for performance on any given Friday which may not yet be occupied.
