Following a devastating fire last year, the original Fergie’s Café might not be anymore, however what has emerged is the best kind of silver lining.

The vision of architect Chris Hunter, the rebirth of the venue is a lesson in perseverance, longevity and sustainability, resulting in a blueprint that fuses a minimalist aesthetic with a 1,400 square foot cantilevered structure and stunning river and mountain views.

Built with materials designed to endure for 100 years, the new Fergie's is an all-season affair, offering an elevated deck and outdoor patio - with views of Mount Alpha - communal tables and picnic benches in the summer months, while colder periods welcome fireside sojourns in a sunlit indoor bar and dining trailer. Here, Jaclyn Walker of Occasus Design Studio has layered black-stained and whitewashed wood and metal, alongside jolts of teal that mirror the exterior's black-stained cedar, steel beams, and rusted plate steel.

It all adds up to a cosy celebration of the Sea-to-Sky enclave, punctuated by chef Victor Pulleyblank’s wholesome menu of seasonal produce and house-smoked ingredients served alongside seasonal craft beers, natural wines and cocktails.
