WORK is progressing well on Warrington’s latest new bar project as two huge beer tanks were installed in the roof of The Grand on Bridge Street, which is set to open this Summer.
The beer tanks will be on full view from inside the Grand and will deliver a fresh crisp cold pint pumped in direct from the brewer into the glass for an unbeatable craft offering. The product will be revealed soon.
Two Warrington town centre bar owners have teamed up to help breathe new life into the former Fusion Sports Bar and nightclub premises on Bridge Street with the aim of creating an upmarket cocktail and wine bar.
The former Co-op building next door to The Academy had been empty and falling into disrepair since the closure of the Fusion Sports Bar and nightclub.
Local bar owners Mike Mason, who owns PJs, The Institution and Hop & Co and James Glover who has the Hideout and Block One, have teamed up on a joint venture called The Grand, which they hope will be open by June, subject to lockdown restrictions, following their initial £250,000 renovation.
Work is progressing well on renovating the building with the aim of creating an upmarket cocktail and wine bar, with future plans for a restaurant on the 1st floor and a rooftop terrace.
Commenting on the new project Mike said: “Work is on schedule and these huge beer tanks are eye-catching and will be on full view. They will deliver a crisp fresh pint for an unbeatable craft offering.
