A Huddersfield town centre venue is getting a £250,000 facelift in a move which also creates five jobs.
The Warehouse at Zetland Street is being transformed by owner Stonegate Pub Company to provide a range of craft beers, real ales and cocktails; super-fast broadband, interactive digital entertainment and a host of student-friendly offers. It will also offer a coffee shop style “grab and go” counter serving tea, coffee and snacks from 8am to eat in or take-away.
The pub, which reopens on Thursday, May 1, will feature an interactive jukebox system allowing customers to select a track from their phone or download a song they’ve just heard. The existing games area will also be refurbished with pool tables and board games. There will also be giant drop down screens and smaller TV screens dotted around the pub to show sports events.
General manager Lindsay Thornton said: “Our customers are busy people living life at a fast pace. By introducing conveniences that make the modern day life simpler we can be that one-stop shop for our customers – somewhere they can kick back and relax, but also where they know they can print off some research or check emails whilst grabbing a bacon sandwich on the way to college or work.”
During the opening day, customers will be treated to live acoustic music and following its launch the pub will be inviting customers to take part in a weekly open mic afternoon from noon to 3pm on Thursdays.
