Two new fast food outlets could replace Beardy’s Bar and Kitchen once the popular burger place says goodbye to its Kippa-Ring location by July 2022.

This comes after developers, who also own the lot at 403-407 Elizabeth Ave, lodged plans to subdivide the lot into three and establish new food outlets at the site.

Based on planning documents, the 220sqm and 200sqm single-storey outlets, which will operate 24/7 will feature drive-through facilities and additional parking spaces.

The new food outlets will provide up to 167 car park spaces spread across the site, with shared car and pedestrian access which can be accessed via Elizabeth Avenue.

Designed by Thomson Adsett, the proposal incorporates generous landscaping along the front boundary of Elizabeth Ave and a pedestrian-friendly entrance into the food and drink outlet.

To facilitate the development, other buildings and structures on the Elizabeth Ave frontage would be removed. Only the large existing building and carparking in the middle of the site will be retained.

“The development has been strategically designed to cohesively integrate with the existing Indoor entertainment facility building currently improving the site at 403 Elizabeth Avenue, which is to be maintained as part of this development,” the planners at Town Planning Alliance (TPA) stated.

The indoor entertainment facility is a former ten pin bowling centre constructed in the early 1980s and is in derelict condition. It is set to be repurposed for a gymnasium. 

Meanwhile, the award-winning Beardy’s Bar and Kitchen will continue to trade until 10 July 2022. Owners Ross and Lee Willson announced on social media that they have been given an extension on their current space and will continue to trade as usual until the said date.

“Beardy’s Kippa-Ring will close its doors on Sunday the 10th of July. We hope to have some exciting news to share with you all soon on Beardys 2.0 but until then thank you for all your support over the last 5+ years we couldn’t have done this without this fantastic community. Thanks again and watch this space!” the Wilsons announced through the business’ page.

The popular burger place, which operated in Kippa-Ring for five years, is still looking for a new home and promised to keep fans posted through social media.
