Have a ball - The Hut Sports Café

The Hut Sports Café851-857 Fergusson Drive, Upper Hutt is the home to the latest sports fanatic hangout - the Hut Sports Café. Originally a hut of pizza, all leftover onion and pizza bases have long been banished in favour of sports fans, food and frenzied fanatic cries.

Distinctive plywood ceilings have been finished in a special Resene Colorwood Hut Sports Café natural blend interior wood stain topped in Resene Aquaclear clear urethane for long term durability and ease of cleaning.

Varying sheen levels of Resene Lumbersider satin acrylic, Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen waterbased enamel and Resene Zylone Sheen low sheen acrylic provide subtle visual effects with the shifts of sheen. The dazzling Resene Sputnik (metallic blue) is stunningly contrasted against the bold Resene Jazz (deep red), Resene Te Papa Green (blackened green), Resene Ronchi (tan yellow), Resene New Denim Blue (warm grey blue), Resene Rob Roy (mid yellow oxide) and Resene Outer Space (deep blue) base palette. The theme of soft blue is carried across into the steel beams to provide a natural bridge between beams and walls.

Visual links to New Zealand's nativity are provided with the Resene Colorwood finished tables overcoated in Resene Poly-Gloss for a high gloss protective urethane finish. The complete au natural look is completed in the high wear and tear bar area with an engineered coating system of Resene Uracryl 403 clear retaining the natural finish and maximising the surface durability.

With crowds wandering through and announcing anytime a good sports watching time, one wonders whether the purchase of a season bar stool ticket might be a sensible investment to ensure a premium seat position in this popular bar.
