Angel 39 has an extensive new look

Angel 39 in Preston city centre, formerly known as The Angel pub, has undergone a major refurbishment.


The Angel 39, which has been described as somewhere between a luxury bar and a pub, came under new management last November.

Daniel Alderson, manager, and his team have put in a lot of hard work and effort to turn around the venue into a modern and classy place, with fashionable decor and reasonably priced drinks.

The venue, located at 39 Lune Street, will relaunch on Saturday 28 October.


Downstairs, Angel 39 has been transformed into a whole new room, with a modern bar, new wooden flooring, and exposed red brick walls that contrast well with adjacent quirky wallpaper.

The room also features brand new seating, eye catching wall art and effective lighting that brings the place to life.

The bar has an array of drinks available, including cask ale beers, cocktails and spirits.

Live music takes place downstairs on Friday and Saturday evenings, so come and be entertained by live musicians from 5pm whilst enjoying tasty beverages.

The upstairs room has also been transformed into a space full of character, featuring a gold and grey colour-scheme.

It includes booths with gold seating, grey carpets, black and gold wallpaper and an impressive wine bar which is the room’s main feature.

The space, surrounded by effective lighting, has been created to provide another room available for private hire and enable more guests to visit the venue.

The toilets have also been totally refurbished, and they are unique with communal facilities for men and women.

Daniel Alderson, manager, said: “I have worked in many pubs in Preston and so have a lot of experience, but Angel 39 has certainly been the one I’m most passionate and excited about working on.

“We want people to know that we are open, and have totally transformed the place into somewhere you wouldn’t recognise from before.

“It’s not a pub, but it’s not a luxury bar either – All the staff are trained to make fantastic cocktails and drinks, and we have a range to choose from including gins and beer that is brewed locally.

“It was one of the oldest pubs in Preston and there is a lot of history to the building.

“We have made it into something modern, but kept ‘angel’ included in the name.

“Our relaunch will take place on Saturday 28 October.

“So come and take a look at the place and see how it has changed into somewhere that you can enjoy drinks, away from the rowdy top end of town where people ‘typically go and get drunk’ on nights out.”


Cocktail and gin masterclasses are also available at Angel 39 from just £15 per person, teaching you the tricks of the trade to making the perfect drink.

You can attend the relaunch on Saturday 28 October, and Angel 39 will be open from then onwards.
