Two of the biggest names in the Warrington hospitality world, have joined forces to create a brand new concept in nights out on Bridge Street. James Glover, behind Hideout, and Mike Mason will unveil The Grand on Thursday 10 June at 5pm after an investment of £250,000 and months of hard work.
The pair have completely transformed the former Big Bar, which had a chequered history, into an art deco style upmarket bar with a fully waited on service described as a ‘restaurant without food’. It has created 15 jobs.
One of the key features will be two large beer tanks filled with Pilsner Urquell delivered direct from the brewery in Plzeň in the Czech Republic. There will be a high end cocktail and wine menu too.
The building’s original ceiling has also been restored with the addition of chandeliers from The Savoy in London.
It will be like coming full circle for James on launch day as Big Bar is where he started out as a DJ.
The Great Sankey resident now DJs at the likes of Creamfields and Neighbourhood Weekender.
Pre-booking is recommended as capacity is limited to 80 with social distancing but there will be walk-in space available on a first-come first-served basis. Email [email protected]
