Bury’s burgeoning eating out and bar scene will herald a new arrival next week when The Snug opens its doors in St John’s Street.
Owner Giles Fry and his business partner Ashley Moore have invested £250,000 in the former Benson Blakes premises and created jobs for 28 people in the process.
The Snug belongs to a small family of bars which began life in Cambridge just a decade ago. Since then, Snug bars have opened in several more commuter-belt towns – the one in Bury is the tenth to fire up.
Mr Fry said: “With the sway towards the casual dining concept, we found a gap in the market in Bury with what we can offer. And St John’s Street is a great fit for us – we are very much a business that is proactive, reactive and almost a family business ourselves.”
The Snug opens on Friday and will offer food and cocktails, along with cocktail making classes. Find out more via www.thesnugbar.co.uk
