DRINKERS along the Coffs Coast may now be enjoying a more professional atmosphere at their home bar after an auction of equipment from the burnt-out Coffs Harbour Hotel.

More than 80 people registered for last week's auction, which included large screen televisions, speakers, disco lights, bar stools, and schooner and middy glasses.

There were also English oak wardrobes and cabinets from the hotel's ac- commodation area.

Kye Aylward, of Aylward Auctioneers, said interest in the bar and catering equipment was particularly high.

"Inspection was very busy and then about 80 people registered for bidding," he said.

Coffs Hotel licensee Marty Phillips was 'emotional' as he watched some of the pub's memorabilia sold.

He said the front bar would, hopefully, reopen in five to six weeks.
