Welcome to

Bigfoot Lodge

Niseko's home of hot beef, world class liquor
and good times!

When stumbling upon this beautiful town six years ago – we decided, after a large bottle of sake and an arm wrestle, to set up the kind of bar we would want to drink in ourselves, overseas.

From a simple well-made Wagyu cheeseburger and fries to a yuzu friendly twist of the classic martini, our love affair with Niseko soon turned into a hospitality showcase of all that is good about our home city of Melbourne.

With the feel of a quirky Canadian hunting lodge and a nod to our new friends of japan, this eclectic blend of old and new, comes together in this warm, friendly place we call home.

As well as serving the staples of a good bar, including quality local draught beers, a super rad range of punch bowls, award winning cocktails, wines by the fire and more, our hot cocktails, Sunday redcup parties and extensive range of whiskies are what make us famous around these parts.

Dining in?


Opening Times

We are open 7 days a week, from 12 noon for lunch, free pool and good times; and rolling on through ’til 2am in the morning where we can be found still giving it a fair old nudge. Keep drinking after 2am and we’ll stay open ’til 3.

Bookings Policy: Unfortunately we do not take bookings. However we can accomodate large groups quite easily. Just pop in.

Kitchen Times

The kitchen opens at 12 midday and serves New York inspired comfort food all the way through until last orders at 10pm. After 10 ask our bar staff about our fancy, pressed jaffles.

To those of you who shun the night, we tip our hat to you. Enjoy your pillow…

To those that shine after dusk, after a monster day riding and enjoy life’s simple pleasures, with fine wine, beautifully crafted cocktails and delicious honest fare, we offer you a warm embrace.

Welcome to the golden time of Bigfoot Lodge – where cocktails flow free, ambient music turns to beats and night after the night the winter party roars on.
