North Bar in Harrogate will also continue to champion the North Bar group’s love of beer with a constantly-changing line-up of beers showcasing the best that Yorkshire, the country, and the world, has to offer.
The new bar will have an outdoor area, and a 50-capacity upstairs room. The venue size and capacity makes it the largest of the North Bar group.
Co-director John Gyngell said:
We’re so excited to be getting involved in the thriving independent scene in Harrogate, and are keen to collaborate with active independents and foster relationships locally.
It has long been the mission of North Bar to ensure we’re active stakeholders in the community, and already feel very welcomed by the people and businesses in Harrogate.
North Bar have been a constant presence on the Leeds bar scene since opening in 1997. 19 years later, and the group’s venues include the award-winning Cross Keys pub in Holbeck, Alfred in Meanwood, Further North in Chapel Allerton, Preston in Oakwood, and North Bar Social in Otley. In 2015 they launched North Brewing Co. brewery and tap.
The original North Bar in Leeds City Centre is considered by many to be the first ever ‘craft beer bar’ in the UK.
