An Italian style bar is due to have its official opening on Friday (1).
Bar Milan in St Johns Street, Bury St Edmunds, has been set up by Coady L-Rhys and Tom McKenna.
“Coady has run several bars in America and has also worked in Italy. I was a plumber but got bored and wanted to do something new,” said Tom.
“At the begining of the year we decided to set up a bar. We’d spent time in Milan and decided we like to do something similiar over here.”
He said the aim was to offer somewhere small and more personal than some of the bigger venues in the town.
The duo already had a pre-launch event two weeks ago.
“A lot of people said there is nothing like this in town and think it is going to have a good future,” said Tom.
They will open on Friday from 4pm with a halloween themed celebration.
