Slug and Lettuce in Harrogate has temporarily closed for a £150,000 makeover and is set to re-open on Thursday 14 March with a spectacular launch party.

The bar on Montpellier Parade in the centre of Harrogate is currently undergoing a top to toe refurbishment which includes a sumptuous new colour palate of plum, aubergine, purple and gold throughout, a striking glass and mirrored back bar area and brand new furniture inside and out including secluded booth seating, ideal for groups or small parties.

General Manager Katy Donnelly, who is creating five new front of house jobs as a result of the refurbishment, is planning on celebrating the bars’ new look with a complimentary cava and canapé reception on Thursday 14 March from 7.30pm. The highlight of the evening will be a special giveaway for one lucky customer of £500 worth of vouchers for Harrogate department store, Hoopers. Each customer with a ticket to the event will receive a golden envelope on arrival containing a unique safe code. The customer with the code that opens of the safe positioned in the centre of the bar will walk away with the vouchers. Anyone wishing to secure a complimentary ticket to the event should email [email protected]

But customers not lucky enough to have the winning ticket need not worry as Katy has pledged to give exclusive goodie bags containing gifts from Hoopers and make-up vouchers to the first fifty guests to arrive, whilst all customers will be able to enjoy Slug and Lettuce’s most popular offer, two for one cocktails, now available all day every day. Customers will be entertained during the evening with tricks from magician of the moment, Matthew Young.

The following evening, Friday 15 March sees the first of a new night at the bar ‘Thank Slug its Fridays’. The first fifty customers to arrive will be treated to a complimentary glass of bubbly, whilst Slug and Lettuce’s highly trained cocktail experts will be delivering cocktail masterclass displays during the evening to highlight the incredible value all day every day cocktail offer. In addition, customers can taste samples and giveaways from Sourz and WKD.

“We’re really going to town with the refurbishment”, explains Katy Donnelly, “and customers will be wowed by the difference. We couldn’t let the transformation pass without a big celebration so have conjured up not just one, but two parties!”

“Excitement is building already for our willy wonka style golden ticket giveaway to win the £500 Hoopers vouchers. If you haven’t already secured your ticket do contact us to ensure you could be in with a chance”, she added.

“The new bar design is stylish and contemporary but will feel warm and inviting too, a perfect combination for our customers”, added Katy. “We know our customers want quality, style, faultless customer service and value for money and we believe we have that whole package. With our lovely new look and fabulous range of food and drinks offers we’re the ideal place to head for lunchtime food, after work drinks, private hire or late night partying.”
