southern hospitality at christchurch airport


Mac’s South Bar & Café is a 600sq m venue located at Christchurch International Airport that incorporates a full production kitchen, meeting room and five themed zones of the bar/café area.

The bar and café opened in late 2012 following an 18-month wait after the Canterbury region’s devastating earthquakes prolonged redevelopment works at the airport.

The name ‘South’ reflects the unique identity of New Zealand’s southern region and the role Christchurch plays as the gateway to the South Island. The South Island theme flows throughout: a strong representation of Mac’s beer brands, hearty traditional fare and innovative tapas food offering and the welcoming and hospitable ambience of the south.



In the sit-down dining area, design house Burning Red Design selected Muros Grey Schist Stone to enhance the main feature wall. The grey stone style has a South Island schist appearance, fitting perfectly with the southern setting.

Sixteen Muros Wall Panels were used on the project with installation successfully completed by first-time Muros installers, Clyne and Wright Construction.
