There are plans to open a new wine bar in Merimbula at 60, Main Street, near the Merimbula RSL Club.
A notice of intention to apply for a liquor licence or a licence authorisation was circulated to interested parties earlier this month.
The applicants have stated that the proposed venue “promises to enhance Merimbula’s coastal village charm” and will be a “day and evening social bar and eatery” specialising in local boutique coffee and teas, hot and cold food and operating between the hours of 7am and midnight. Local craft beers and organic wines will be available, the application states.
The applicants, who are listed only as Mitt & Gyps Pty Ltd, said that they will retain the cottage’s original features and display local arts and crafts.
“The space will provide opportunity for book club meets, poetry readings and other creative social functions,” the application says, for a maximum of 200 patrons.
