Fergburger to open late-night ‘Ferg Bar’

Queenstown’s world-famous burger joint, Fergburger, has been given the go-ahead to add a bar to its repertoire. Fergburger already has a neighbouring bakery and ice-cream shop, and will soon be able to open a small bar on the premises, too.

The bar will accommodate 40 people and will be able to serve alcohol from 7 am to 4 am. The outside speakers will have to shut off between the hours of 1 am, and 8 am. The bar aims to provide a good location for people to grab one to three drinks and eat some high-quality small plate food options before heading out. Steve Bradley, general manager, said the company’s executive chef was working on an exciting, seasonal menu. “We’re trying to keep it a surprise,” he said.

The Ferg Bar—a working name, is hoped to be finished by the end of the year, but it will depend on the availability of the construction workers.

Fergburger is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike, serving hundreds of people each day/night.
