Barrel Room, Ayrburn


Queenstown, New Zealand



The bar with a piano, lounge setting and mural painted walls.

Ayrburn is a multi-outlet hospitality precinct distributed across 30 acres of historic land in Queenstown’s Arrowtown. It is the retelling of the site's story through our lens, pieced together through the artefacts and pieces of literature sourced through our design journey. 

Sunken into the hill and underneath the Burr Bar, the Barrel Room is a 60 pax function room, bar and dining room. It is conceived as a subterranean wine aging cellar and although built new for the Precinct, is complete with cracking render and a beautifully site painted wall mural, hand forged steel gates and face brickwork.
