Pop Up Container Bar Proposed For City Centre

Dec 09, 2018

Subject to approval by Invercargill City Council our city centre could have an exciting new Pop Up container bar in the New Year.

Proposed by Invercargill Licensing Trust, replacing the soon to be demolished Kiln and Barluca as they make way for the new ILT inner city hotel.

The proposed site for the container bar is Wachner Place where a pop up container bar would be established while the inner city hotel redevelopment takes place over the next 2-3 years.

Invercargill Licensing Trust has approached Invercargill City Council to consider leasing part of Wachner Place land for the purpose of the bar.

The proposal goes before a full council meeting on Tuesday 11th December.

The trust will be closing two establishments, The Kiln and Bar Luca, when demolition starts in the new year to make way for its new inner city hotel.

Invercargill Licensing chief executive Chris Ramsay said a container bar was an “exciting opportunity and would fill the void left” by the closure of our two bars while the new city  centre hotel is constructed.

“With Tuatara Cafe next door The Speights Ale House and Waxy’s all within a short distance, creating an entertainment strip/hub and around the corner on Don Street, there’s Auction House and Vinyl Bar” he said.

The proposal outlines a number of points and requirements to be negotiated including:

  • keeping unimpeded access to the footpath in Wachner Plce
  • free access to public toilets

“It’s early days but we have had pretty positive feedback” from council executives regarding the project so far. Mr Ramsay said.
