Halifax is hotting up this summer with the brand-new venue, Townhouse. Opening to the public on 12th August, the 15,000 ft sq space has undergone a massive £200,000 makeover, making it unrecognisable as its former Potting Shed self. As well as that, over 50 jobs have been created at the Fountain Street location, boosting the local economy significantly.
Spread across four floors, the focus of Townhouse is all about bringing people together to have a great time, with customers able to experience a different delight on each level. Plus, every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, resident DJs will dial things up a notch, playing banging tunes to welcome in the weekend.
The ‘Basement’ sports bar is the perfect space to watch the Premier League kick-off this August, with its huge LED video wall screening all the big games as well as late-night boxing. Tuck into dirty burgers that are perfect for the gram, and large sharing platters whilst getting into the spirit of the game. Every weekend, the ‘Basement’ will be transformed into a
club, featuring the best in local Dj talent with headline acts from across the UK taking over once a month. Customers will have access to a selection of bookable private booths, suitable for any occasion.
On the ground floor is the ‘Living Room’, serving delicious homemade food that can all be washed down with an eclectic menu of original cocktails and an excellent range of craft beers, including local brewer, Vocation and some top international picks. And last, but not least, on the roof terrace is the ‘Sky Lounge & Sky Garden’, where you can catch up with the girls over bottomless brunch and afternoon tea. A retractable roof terrace ensures the fun continues whatever the weather.
Speaking about the re-brand and re-opening, Operations Director, Andy Ingham, says:
“We wanted to make use of every inch of this huge space and offer everyone who visits an experience that they will remember. There is a range of food offerings on each floor and the different themes mean there is something for everyone and every occasion.
We’re really proud of being able to provide jobs for so many people and, in fact, we need more people to come on board! Townhouse is a huge venture for us, but it’s the perfect time to be opening and Halifax is the ideal location for it. Several new bars and restaurants have opened in the area and the town is bustling again.”
Talented, local chefs have been brought in to create delicious menus that all incorporate Yorkshire produce. Whether you fancy sourdough pizzas or a plant-based snack, you’ll find something to whet your appetite. For those with a sweet tooth, there are a whopping 7 dessert options to choose from.
General Manager, James Maddison, added:
“No stone has been left unturned at Townhouse and we really have thought of everything. We’re looking forward to welcoming people to the venue and seeing them have a really amazing time with their friends and family. We’re sure it will be a big hit with locals and those from further afield alike.”
