The money will fund an open plan look centred around a luxury feel. The bar, which is situated on the corner of Collingwood Street and Pudding Chare, will pay tribute to the local area, with décor showcasing Newcastle’s Angel of the North with a vodka twist taking main stage.
The refurbishment brings a brand new ‘best seat’ VIP booth and updated seating areas with a new lighting show and DJ booth.
Revolution Newcastle sales and events manager Meagan Hill said: “I am super excited for the venue to reopen with its new look on 13 May. The refurbishment includes an updated look to our beautiful Grade II listed building, highlighting the historic bank features, with a Revolution twist.”
She continued: “We can’t wait to kick off our relaunch with a huge agenda, starting on Thursday 26 May with the launch of our new bottomless dinner, on Friday we are hosting our corporate re-launch event and then going onto our main event of the week - our huge Saturday re-launch party.
“We have such an exciting line up of big entertainment including DJ’s, sax players, percussionists and so much more across the weekend – this will be a party like no other at Revolution Newcastle."
The best party in town
Revolution has also welcomed a new cocktail menu with four new American-themed cocktails called Malibu Beach Bae, Tennessee Cherry Sour, Hollywood Highball and Gold Rush.
“We've spent a lot of time reviewing our guests' feedback and we know that they expect great quality and excellent service. We have undergone a big recruitment push and training program to ensure our team, old and new, are ready to deliver the best party in town and welcome guests into our venue for our exciting launch party," said Hill.
