Work to transform a Wellingborough pub into a sports bar and club has begun.
The Cutting Room will re-open on March 8 as The Palace after undergoing a major refurbishment including the installation of screens to show sporting events, booths and the creation of a VIP area.
The Sports Tours International promoted venue will also give customers the opportunity to play darts, while enjoying a drink and some food.
Dan and the new owner of The Palace Kareem Naaman used to run a sports bar in Maidenhead and have been looking to branch out in the past 18 months.
Speaking to the Northants Telegraph about the new venue, new owners Dan Bisset and Kareem Naaman said the wait will be worthwhile.
Dan said: “The refurbishment will be quite extensive, the works are coming in at about £60,000. What we were keen on was finding the right venue. The first time we looked at Cutters, we liked the location and the fact that it’s already got a decent Friday and Saturday night trade so it ticked all our boxes.”
“We are due to re-open on March 8, and we will have something going on that night.”
