More Info →Aqaba Bar and Restaurant

This building was originally the home of the United Manawatu Lodge 1721, EC., opened and dedicated on July 24, 1931. It was designed by Ernst West, a local architect and Mason. In the late 1980s the building became too expensive to maintain and was sold and renovated into the Aqaba bar & restaurant. Two panels of hieroglyphics translate to “Thy name shall live upon earth; thy name shall endure upon earth, thou shalt never perish; thou shalt never come to an end”.
