Bangalore Polo Club Bar and RestaurantCity jump - the Bangalore Polo Club Bar

Anyone who has been out on the town in the last few years in Wellington will instantly recall the Coyote Bar nestled in the heart of town on Courtenay Place pumping with energy late at night. After all a bar with a huge uncovered outdoor area is very memorable, especially when its pouring.

With such a superb location to work with but with a need to provide a more all weather option, the new Bangalore Polo Club Bar and Restaurant includes an outside bar area with retractable roof. On fine summer day patrons relax in the sun and when the weather turns bad the roof provides ample protection from the elements.

Once based on the River Avon in Christchurch, this bar and restaurant was forced to find a new home when the earthquakes devastated their original historic building premises. Rather than try and find another location in Christchurch they jumped cities to Wellington for a fresh start.

The redevelopment of their new site was extensive. The exterior street facing PBS Eterpan tapered edge substrate is now finished in a Rockcote jointing system with Rockcote Classico texture. Resene Hi-Glo CoolColour™ is also used on the exterior for a high gloss waterborne paint finish. On the interior of the outdoor bar area joints are finished in Rockcote Multistop followed by Resene Sandtex, a Mediterranean effect finish.

With a fresh new city and a fresh new start, Bangalore Polo Club Bar and Restaurant is a great example of how dealing with adversity can make you much stronger.
