Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

The Bal­larat Trad­ing Com­pany, in the heart of Queen­stown’s Mall is the Fes­ti­val gas­tro-pub stop you need to make.

With live mu­sic seven days a week, and a re­lax­ing, old world vibe, The Bal­larat is open seven days from 7am till late, and now serves break­fast.

On Satur­day and Sun­day nights, lo­cal band The Flavour are in res­i­dence, and the aim is to let loose and have fun.

The live mu­sic on of­fer the rest of the week is in­tended to add to the re­laxed and wel­com­ing vibe of the restau­rant.

The Bal­larat Trad­ing Com­pany has a well-es­tab­lished his­tory in Queen­stown, now en­ter­ing its sixth year of trad­ing.

Pre­vi­ous to its present in­car­na­tion, the build­ing housed the Na­tional Bank.

The in­te­rior of The Bal­larat was de­signed by award-win­ner Tom Skyring and re­flects Bal­larat Trad­ing Com­pany’s em­pha­sis on com­fort, and on lo­cal his­tory – it is based on an 1850s trad­ing com­pany.

Food is an in­te­gral part of what Bal­larat’s Trad­ing Com­pany of­fers when you walk through the door, and the menu re­flects its gas­tropub roots with feel-good clas­sics like great burg­ers, blue cod and chips and braised pork ribs.

If you’re in the mood for some­thing a lit­tle bit more re­fined but still want to dine in a re­laxed at­mos­phere, The Bal­larat can cater to you there, too, with dishes like lin­guini with scal­lops, prawns and mus­sels or porcini mush­rooms with black rice risotto wait­ing to tempt your taste­buds.

With a full range of wines, beer, spir­its and non-al­co­holic drinks avail­able, The Bal­larat is the ideal post-Fes­ti­val lo­ca­tion for din­ner, a drink and some great lo­cal at­mos­phere.

The Bal­larat’s ex­ten­sive open­ing hours are ideal for those at­tend­ing the Fes­ti­val, and its friendly staff are ready and wait­ing for you to ex­pe­ri­ence its unique at­mos­phere.
