Jobs safe at Nottingham leisure complex, says bar operator

The company which operates the Bierkeller Entertainment Complex (BEC) has told that its wants to assure its customers that all of its bars are open for business as usual despite the owners going into administration.

Burning Night Limited, which owns the companies which in turn own Bierkellers in cities around the country, announced it was ceasing trading this month after experiencing cashflow issues.

But it says its bars and restaurants in Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham and Nottingham have been unaffected by the decision, meaning that all jobs and all customer bookings are secure.

A spokesperson for BEC said: “Although we regrettably took the decision to close our Cardiff site, it has always been our priority to safeguard the other sites and keep them operating as usual. Both the company that owns the lease and the operating company of the Bierkeller Entertainment Complexes in the five other cities are trading as normal.

“We understand that customers may be concerned, especially if they’re planning to celebrate Christmas with us, but we want to assure them that they have no need to worry. Our Christmas bookings are stronger than ever and we’re looking forward to a very busy few months.”
