WEEEKENDS in Northwich are about to receive a welcome addition.

BEAR at Barons Quay has announced it is set to launch a new evening service on Fridays and Saturdays.

The concept, Later at BEAR, will see guests treated to cocktails and burgers as the venue stays open beyond its usual business hours.

Having seen the idea succeed at BEAR’s other branches, store manager Ethan Murphy is eagerly awaiting the launch in Northwich.

He said: “We can’t wait to bring Later at BEAR to Northwich.

“It’s gone down a storm in the other BEAR stores so we’re excited to hear what everyone here thinks of our new menu, new cocktails and new vibe.

“Not long to go now - the team and I are busy getting ready to get the party started from Friday 25th August, but tables are available to book now via our website.

“We hope to see lots of you there!"

BEAR was founded in 2014 and currently operates five branches across the Midlands and Cheshire, with two more set to open later this year.

The Barons Quay venue opened back in September 2020, following a lengthy delay due to the Covid lockdown.

Until now, it has been known as a place to get speciality coffee and brunch.

Later at BEAR is designed to be the "alter ego" of that, with a menu consisting of hand-pressed smash burgers, loaded fries and tater tots, as well as house made condiments, pickles, hand-stretched pizzas, and taco trays.

Guests will also be able to enjoy modern twists on classic cocktails and a wide variety of craft beer.

The concept first launched as a trial run at the brand’s Iron Gate store in Derby in October last year.

Proving to be a success, BEAR has rolled out the service across all of its branches with Northwich the final piece of the puzzle.
