After weeks of renovation work, local central Harrogate restaurant, Scran is re-opening its doors today with a brand new look interior a whole new vibe and concept – and a new name for the venue, Scran The Yorkshire bar and kitchen.
With a modern interior décor of natural materials including marble, wood and leather running throughout the newly opened venue, it exudes an inviting space in which to dine with family and friends and enjoy the extensive wine and cocktails menu on offer.
The venue has been reconfigured to allow the perfect balance of intimate booths and an open plan dining area to suit couples and groups of family and friends. Plus, any diners wanting to dine alfresco in the centre of Harrogate have the perfect location with Scran’s newly created terrace at the front of the property, housing new tables and chairs and décor, creating a Mediterranean feel. And, with social distancing at the forefront, the team have created more space between the open plan tables at present but has plans to increase the capacity of the restaurant in the future.
The wine and cocktail bar has been designed to be the central focus of the venue. Walls have been removed and alcoves opened up to give the bar a bright, airy and open feel to allow customers to see cocktail craftery in action! Screens have been placed around the bar and have been installed as aesthetically pleasing as possible to provide the perfect combination of safety and style.
