Plau bar has opened its doors in Friargate to bring four levels of gin, ale and food to the city.Advertisement
A cross between The Continental and The Plungington in a city centre location the bar is the latest opening from the Meat and Drink Group.
It’s been more than four years in the making and the project for Rebecca Scott, Jeremy Rowlands and Nicola Heritage has gradually increased as they discovered new parts of the building.
Thought to be at least 250 years old the bar includes the original gin making premises used in the city.
Jeremy said the restoration of the building had uncovered much about the city’s Temperance movement and gin history.
A labyrinth of a building it includes a dining room, a bar by the well discovered by the team and plenty of little booths for quiet conversation.
We spoke to Rebecca and Jeremy about how the opening had gone, you can listen below or here:
Plau opens to the public from Friday (16 November).
