Entrepreneur Katrina Zunker has expanded her business into the Bundaberg Region as she officially opened Katrina's Bar earlier this week.
Following the success of her first venue in 1770, Katrina is bringing her signature cocktails to the new enterprise located at 3 Queen Street, Bundaberg North.
Katrina’s Bar offers a full food and drinks menu as well as a function room available for hire and live music kicking off this Saturday.
Katrina said she decided to take the plunge and open a second bar after seeing the space available on her drive into town.
“I live over in North Bundaberg so I’ve been driving past and looking at it and started thinking it could work there,” Katrina said.
“I started the business in 1770 in April 2021 which is an indoor-outdoor kind of bar on the water at the marina.
“People were loving it, especially the cocktails, so I thought ‘why not?'.”
Katrina said her cocktail mixing is all self-taught and she liked to tweak each one to make it special.
“In 1770 I renamed them after places in the area and for Bundy I was thinking of doing different cities around the world for something a little different,” Katrina said.
“I just got into it, I had a vision and then did all my licencing and just did it all.”
Katrina said she designed the venue to offer guests plenty of space to relax with ambient lighting and smaller nooks for those wanting a more secluded spot for a drink and chat.
“It’s a little different, that’s what everyone that’s walked in has said,” Katrina said.
“I’ve had a lot of good feedback on Facebook and people are excited so I think it should be good.”
