New Walkabout bar opens in style

Solihull Editorial 5th Oct, 2015 Updated: 21st Oct, 2016   0

SOLIHULL’S new Walkabout Bar opened with an exclusive V.I.P night last Thursday (October 1) following a £485,000 spend.

The bar, which boasts pre-bookable booths, a new ‘reef bar’ and a state of the art sound and lighting system, showcased the based local DJs, live entertainment, champagne and canapes from the new menu.

The move has created 20 permanent new jobs for the local area and will provide the perfect setting for people to watch live sport, sample the delicious food on offer and party the night away.

The layout of the bar means that – in addition to hosting awesome party nights – Walkabout is the perfect place for an impromptu coffee, relaxing lunch or a chilled out afternoon on your own or with friends.

Sam Heathcote, General Manager, said: “Walkabout is famous for legendary party nights, fun, live music, sport and great food, and now locals will have this at their fingertips.

“We had a fantastic opening and can’t wait for our customers to see the new venue for themselves.”
