Bournemouth’s vibrant centre has seen many businesses come and go. But some have stood the test of time; refurbishment, changed names and new management consistently breathe new life into the nightlife. Here are three brilliant businesses that are booming.
The Real Greek has been a popular eating place for more than 12 months now. What’s more, the team have transformed a section of the restaurant into a relaxing wine bar – perfect for post-work pre-club drinks. Grab a glass of wine and some greek tapas to start your weekend in style.
Terrior Tapas is an eco-friendly bar that’s also perfect for groups. Last month, they won the Sustainable Practices Award at the CLASS Bar Awards, recognising their commitment to eliminating waste, chemicals and carbon trails. The bar and tables are made from recycled plastic, waste water is recycled to flush toilets and cocktails and food share ingredients to minimise waste.
Three years on and still going strong, Canvas has linked up with the team at Halo and SandFest to carry out a major refurbishment. They also have some big names lined up for summer: tickets for Jazzy Jeff, Toploader, Jazzie B and Brand New Heavies are already nearly sold out, months in advance. Book the new VIP boothes to make a special occasion really special.
Due to be completed in Spring, unique Beach Lodges offer unusual, ultra-moden accommodation featuring a kitchen, shower, TV and WiFi.
