The Irish themed bar became Shenanigans last year and has now been bought out by the Amber Taverns group.
They are re-branding the pub as The Northern Way and promise some ‘great Northern hospitality’.
Workers are currently gutting the Friargate pub and giving it a whole new look and feel inside.

There’s scaffolding up on the outside with banners stating ‘there is another way’.
Operator of The Northern Way Oliver Mattinson said: “We are transforming the old O’Neills pub to become a vibrant town centre bar with a focus on great Northern hospitality.
“We’ll be open all day every day and have the capacity to show a multitude of sports on a number of TV locations around the bar.
“There will be an extensive drinks menu which is still being researched and tested on our Northern Guinea Pigs – we will have everyday alcoholic beverages and twists on classic libations.”
The pub is due to open in mid-October.
