We have it on good authority that DB stepped in and dealt a death blow to what was arguably Wellingtons biggest Bar – the Temperance complex. this morning. It was viewed as an ambitious complex by Wellingtons hospitality industry. It’s fit out was estimated to be around $3 mil. DB and the Wellington Rugby Union were significant investors. Everyone is asking what Wellington Rugby is up for after the bars and restaurants failed to make good. Sad really – it would have been good to see it take off but we understand that fit out, cost overruns and very high rents meant it was an intemperate investment from day one.
