West Midlands businessman, Tony McKeon, is set to open a new Peaky Blinders-inspired venue in Dudley called The Office Bar & Restaurant.
Creating up to 12 jobs for the local area and with an investment of £250,000, the Castle Hill venue’s theme will be about the “real” Peaky Blinders and not centered around the TV’s version of characters and events.
The Office Bar & Restaurant is located at the recently refurbished Station Hotel and Banqueting Suite and will also offer hotel rooms following the Peaky Blinders theme.
The venue can hold a capacity of up to 250 people and plans are in place for regular Peaky themed entertainment evenings. The menu will be focusing on local Black Country classics like faggots and peas and the famous balti. An array of artwork from the official Peaky
Blinders Artist Jon Jones will be on display and will include pieces from the TV show.
McKeon said: “The story and history around the Peaky Blinders has been my passion for a long time. I have collected items of memorabilia and many pieces of artwork from Jon Jones who is the official Peaky Blinders artist. Birmingham’s famous Professor and Historian, Carl Chinn has also shared some of his knowledge about the real Peaky Blinders with me.
When I saw the Station Hotel, I knew straight away that the history and architecture here would be a perfect fit with a Peaky Blinders theme and a great place to share my passion with the local community and visitors from all over the world.”
