And the new bar in O’Connor will be… Duxton

By johnboy - 13 February 2012 28

duxton

Out in Canberra are doing an omnibus burger deal with Canberra’s rugby bars.

And there we have the new bar in O’Connor being built in the body of All Bar Nun.

It’s going to be called “Duxton” which sounds a bit like a stableboy, but time will tell.

They have this to say about it:

Duxton

Canberra’s latest local pub launching in O’Connor this February. Buy your ticket and be one of the first to sample this new establishment.

What’s Your opinion?

If it’s launching in February it doesn’t give them much time for a re-fit. So much for any hopes for an improvement on the All Bar layout/atmosphere.

Just in time to take account of my cultural concerns, though. I demand a screened off drinking area for people earning more than six figures, and which does not serve VB, because it is against my cultural beliefs to associate with bogans (even the cashed up kind).

And since the fitout is at the design stage, the marginal cost of incorporating my requirement will be fairly small and my demands are therefore totally justified.

the coat of paint on the outside of the building is definitely an improvement though.

Seriously, those guys have high hopes for the popularity of their business…

You see I thought this as well, then I clicked on the link, to investigate further, the $20 actually gets you a ticket to the Brumbies first home game and a Gourmet Burger at one of the following;
Queanbeyan – Walsh’s Hotel
Gungahlin – Siren Bar & Restaurant
Griffith – Gryphons Restaurant & Bar
Braddon – Debacle
Belconnen – Ha Ha Bar
O’Connor – Duxton

So there you go, no point having a go at the business if you can’t be bothered reading what the ticket is for if you ask me.

I did like the old skool Vietnam Restaurant sign reemerging on the corner for a day or two last week.

Now I know what it feels like to be an old fart reminiscing.

O’Connor Vietnamese .. good times.

I’m thinking brand of toilet. “Royal Duxton”. Not auspicious.

Could be a nod to Todd Carney’s exploits on the premises!

Nodding to Todd Carney in a toilet is explicitly NOT recommended.

Gourmet burgers are so passé.

Buy a ticket to buy a drink in a bar?

I suppose you have to give them credit for sheer arse.

Did you read the link? The ticket is a ticket to the Brumbies Vs Force game that includes a burger beforehand in the deal.

Looks like instead of the duck’s nuts they think they’ll be the squirrel’s nuts.

First a hotel named after a handbag, now a bar named after a hotel chain. Nothing new under the sun, I suppose.
