THE HISTORY OF BARNEY’S TAVERN
Where it all began
Gus Ferguson had a vision of relocating the popular Barney’s Tavern Johannesburg and when the perfect Port Elizabeth location presented itself, he jumped at the opportunity. The Barney’s Tavern recipe for Good Food, Good Fun & Great Value was introduced to the friendly city as Barney’s Tavern Port Elizabeth took over the reins as the ‘place to be’ from Barney’s Tavern Gold Reef City in 1991.
So go on… there’s a new experience waiting for you!Born in 1991, Barney’s Tavern on the Beach front of Port Elizabeth has maintained its position as PE’s no 1 Food and Fun venue. Originally with our roots at Gold Reef City in Johannesburg where we also operated our own Brewery. Barney’s Port Elizabeth is now the No 1 Draught Beer outlet in South Africa. So if it’s Draft Beer that suites your fancy Barney’s is the place to be!
Our food which is typically South African, has also won many compliments. We are the only venue in Port Elizabeth and possibly in South Africa which offers live entertainment, for FREE, 7 nights a week.
Our location in the prime tourist hub of P.E., only 10 minutes from the airport, within walking distance of the prime hotels and casino makes Barney’s Tavern a must when visiting Port Elizabeth.
Undoubtedly the icing on the cake is our location, situated on the ocean side of Marine Drive, where you can literally touch the sea.
