An exciting new café, restaurant and bar concept is being developed for one of Queenstown’s iconic historic buildings. The creative minds behind The World Bar will take over the historic McNeill’s Cottage on Church Street, renowned for its timeless character and original thick stone walls. Collaborators Steve Ward and Gary Livesey will take over the cottage in April to begin renovations for their newest creation. The historic cottage was built in 1882 by Scottish stonemason James McNeill and has been a hospitality destination since the early 1990s when it housed Queenstown’s first microbrewery. “This project’s been in the pipeline for a while,” said Gary Livesey. “The venue will be an interesting addition to the distinctive business in the Church Street area.”
