£144,000 makeover for popular city venue

Manchester has a reputation for night life but one bar which first opened its doors in 1996 is about to undergo a six figure makeover.

Revolution Oxford Road, the brand’s original bar will benefit from a £144,000 investment, having shut its doors for a few days on the 22nd May it is now preparing to reopen its doors and debut its new look on 28th May.

The new design builds upon the current exposed brick look with the addition of some eye-catching neon signs and artwork. While the OG bar will also feature a vodka display spanning the brand’s creative history.

The transformation is not just taking place inside, with the view from the street now showcasing a huge graffiti mural, a new colour scheme, and special effect lighting designed to pop on Oxford Road.

Jack Pople, Revolution general manager said: “I can’t wait to get this refurbishment finished so people of Manchester can see what we’re all about here at Oxford Road. We feel very lucky to work in an environment where our team is so tight-knit and cohesive, and it will be amazing when the look and feel of the venue reflect this even more.

“From the graffiti mural to the special effects lighting and bold neon signs, the visuals look incredible and help to create the kind of electric atmosphere that guests have come to expect from the brand.”

The venue will reopen on 28 May ahead of a series of relaunch events over the Jubilee weekend of 3rd and 4th June.
