THE Wellington City Council has unanimously granted an extended liquor licence for The Rogue & Vagabond bar.

The bar, situated on Garrett Street in Te Aro will allow patrons to sit outside on bean-bag style seating outside the bar in Glover Park.

Rogue & Vagabond is one of Wellington’s newest craft beer bars.

The extended licence has been granted from October 1 through until April 30, between the hours of 10am and 10pm.

The Council has allowed up to 20 seats, so there will be plenty of room available for a craft beer in the sun.

One of the owners of Rogue & Vagabond, Becs Gray said that they will have no issue keeping to council requirements.

The area is approximately 208 square metres, and the bar will be paying a fee of just over a thousand dollars a month for the licence.

“It will certainly improve business, especially if there is another good summer”, said Ms Gray.

The extended licence should not affect residents in the area, as they won’t be on the park past 10pm, and will aim to have everyone inside when the music starts, she said.

Ms Gray said the bar has good relationships with neighbouring businesses and residents.

The manager of the neighbouring café August, Ivan Muller, believes it will only improve business as Rogue & Vagabond do not serve coffee.

“We have an awesome relationship with them, so we will probably share business,” he said.

The public will still have access to the area, as there will be no fencing or barriers.
