Ropewalks is one of the best parts of the city to head for a drink with a range of bars to suit all on a night out. Now,opening just in time for the Christmas period, ALBERTS is set to add to the Seel Street line up.
From new restaurants and hidden beer gardens to nightclubs and old-favourites, you’re spoilt for choice on Seel Street and ALBERT’S aim to offer something a little different earlier in the day. The bar have opted for sports on T.V earlier in the day, which is unusual for bars in the Seel Street area. There are 2 x 3 metre projectors installed and a further 11 large screen televisions scattered around the bar. So sports fans can sit back with a drink and enjoy the game.
But rest-assured that once the sports are finished they will be dimming down the lights and playing the coolest tunes available to date. Fridays and Saturdays will have DJ’s from 8pm onward with a more relaxed attitude midweek where you can chill out in one of their candle lite booths. Split over two floors the upper mezzanine area is great for extra bit of privacy. Its a real little hideaway in the heart of the city.
Ruth Carmicheal, the Operations Manager said “ We are pleased to be opening in time for the Christmas period and the site has a real interesting back story. Some people will remember the site as it was, a garage, for many many years. The site was owned by Albert Carmichael and he ran the garage on this very spot for 35 years. When we purchased the site Albert was excited to see how it would all look, but sadly he passed away before construction was completed. So we thought it only right to name the venue after him, in his honour.
There are newly constructed apartments on the upper floors with ALBERT’S occupying ground floor and basement. The building and bar design came from SNOOK architects who are based in Liverpool with many bars to their name, including the recently opened Einstein in Concert Square.
Ruth added “As bar operators the team behind ALBERTS’ have been in the industry for over 20 years and we look forward to what is gearing up to be a very busy festive period.”
