BrewDog Bars update!
The latest from our bar division on planet Earth
It's been a while since we told you where we're at with some of our latest bar projects, and boy have we been busy! With dedicated team members now hunting high and low for property and partners, it's all systems go and we are on track to open more than 10 new bars in the next 6 months. I know, right?!
Incase you missed them, we recently launched BrewDog Tokyo (pictured below) and BrewDog Sheffield (pictured above!), both of which are kicking some serious ass! Been to one of these? Let us know what you think in the comments!
Here's an update on where we're at with our bars across planet Earth:
31 Westgate Street, Cardiff, CF10 1DX
We've secured a site in Cardiff and the licence has been approved! We're just finalising the designs and we're hoping to launch late May/early June this year!
1 Manolis Yard, Colquit Street, Liverpool, L1 4NL
Despite some initial reservations from the local police force, we have secured our licence in Liverpool! We are just finalising the designs and plans for fit out and we're confident we can get this bar rocking and rolling by mid-June
BottleDog King's Cross
69, Gray's Inn Road, London
The site of our first ever off licence shop as well as our new Baby HQ in London will be opening its doors in April. You'll be able to pick up growler refills, amazing bottled beers from BrewDog and hundreds of awesome craft breweries from around the world, speak to our qualified and knowledgeable staff about the range and sit and read craft beer books at your leisure. This will be the best bottle shop in London.
Ground Floor, Chamber Building, Panmure Street, Dundee, DD1 1ED
Our fourth bar in Scotland has been a long time coming, but it's finally here! Due to open in May, the building is one epic gothic structure and we're sure we can do the bold exterior justice with some pretty badass beers flowing inside.
BrewDog Clapham / Dalston Brewing Academy
We can't say too much but we've got a few irons in fires for both a bar south of the river and our long-awaited brewing academy in East London. We've identified sites for both, we just have some pretty exciting stuff to sort out before we can announce anything more...hopefully we'll get these launched by late Summer though! Stay tuned...
BrewDog HQ, Ellon, Aberdeenshire
Our Bar, Shop and Visitor Centre plans at our Ellon HQ are progressing well. We will also have a 10HL pilot brewery in this space too. With a bit of luck we will be open in time for our 2014 AGM.
Brighton, Oxford, Cambridge and Norwich
These are our other top target sities right now. We are spending a lot of time in all four checking out the available venues, but if you find an epic space please email firstname.lastname@example.org so he can hop on the next train and check it out!
Kungsgatan 10B, Gothenburg
Following the launch of BrewDog Stockholm in May last year, we're super psyched to have secured a deal for a second bar in Sweden! Close to Andra Långgatan/Järntorget, Haga and Magasinsgatan, we're hoping to open this bar on the anniversary of BrewDog Stockholm's launch, 22nd May. How's that for tidiness!
We're staking our claim in Berlin this Summer! We've pretty much secured a site, although we can't reveal the exact details of its location until a few bits of paper are signed, sealed and delivered. We've got a Bar Manager though, and we'll announce the exact location as soon as we're able to start work on the site!
BrewDog Rome & BrewDog Florence
We've got venues for both of these in the works, and pending a few final administrative joys we should be in a position to announce both formally in the coming weeks. Both bars should be opening late Summer, so stay tuned for our first official craft beer bars in Italy!
We've found an awesome partner to work with locally on this one, but the finer details on the location are still top secret for the time being. We'll announce these as soon as we can on social media...!
Following a pretty crazy day on the blog, we can confirm we have found an amazing partner to work with on the launch of BrewDog Helsinki! Thanks so much to everyone who got in touch, the response was astronomical and we're insanely excited to be opening a bar in Helsinki! HELL YEAH! More announcements on the exact location will come soon, we are aiming to open this Summer.
Paris, Barcelona, Norway, Brussels and New Delhi
As always, we are on the hunt for ideal venues in these locations. Our partners are already on it, but by all means throw something in the comments if you think there is a vacant property we should check out!
