Another new opening in Harrogate that promises something different.
Plans are being made to shake up the cocktail scene in Harrogate with the opening of the Foundry Project, an all-day hangout for discerning drinkers. The idea is to have a venue that serves customers from sun-up to lights out. The Foundry Project takes its lead from London’s bustling independent cocktail and coffee shop culture and aims to focus on offering high-quality food and craft drinks served up in a relaxed and informal atmosphere both day and night.
Foundry Project general manager, David Reeves, says most of the bars in the spa town are part of big chains and a ‘little samey’. He adds: ‘We want to offer something completely different. Foundry Project will stand out from the competition, providing a relaxed and informal atmosphere for customers ranging from solo laptop workers to big groups on special occasions
The new cocktail bar claims to have a creatively cool interior and a diverse selection of drinks and food. There is a large and ambient seating area - ‘the perfect setting for whiling away the morning catching up on work or just chilling out with a cup of Caravan Coffee, a high-quality, carefully produced coffee that is sourced from independent farms and specialty estates.’
It’s here the spa town’s daytime workers can choose from an extensive breakfast and brunch menu served everyday from 9.30am featuring stacked brown butter pancakes with yogurt and berries and porridge with maple syrup, pecans and bananas.
Guests looking for after-work entertainment and nibbles can step up to the bar for a variety of sharing plates, along with burgers and fresh sourdough pizza. Night owls have a choice of guest ales, beers and craft cocktails.
Well-known DJ’s from Leeds will offer ‘unique entertainment concepts, including Sunday takeovers to provide a day of achingly cool beats to go nicely alongside new bottomless brunch offers with breakfast, pizzas and a selection of tipples.’
We’re sure Harrogate can’t wait.
Head for the Foundry Project, 1-1a The Ginnel, Harrogate, HG1 2RB. Opening times are Sunday – Wednesday 9am till 11pm and Thursday – Saturday 9am till 12.30am. Alcohol is available from 10am.
