The bar will open to the public on Saturday 15th August just in time for festival revellers making their way to the county for popular V Festival, taking place 22nd and 23rd August.

Adding a touch of panache and style to the city, the move from a Yates will appeal to a broader and slightly older audience. Customers will be presented with an extensive new menu and fantastic deals throughout the week, including 2-4-1 cocktails and brilliant discounts on wine. The new site will create 32 new positions with the team headed up by experienced General Manager, Kim Candido.

A glamorous launch party will take place on Friday 21st August with doors opening at 7pm. Guests will be invited to test their mixology skills courtesy of cocktail master classes whilst listening to live music and being treated to a sneak preview of the food and drinks menu.

“Having recently celebrated our 30th Birthday it is a really exciting time for Slug and Lettuce and we are really pleased to bring the brand to the town of Chelmsford. The whole team has been working effortlessly, so we are really looking forward to revealing all and seeing the public reaction.” explains Kim.
