Kuckoo Cocktail bar is ready to rock!

Following the resounding success of their bars across the North West and Sheffield, the Kuckoo triumph has expanded once more. This time, to Warrington and its ready to rock!

Opening strategically in time for the 2023 festivities, exhilaration spread across Warrington for the unique blend of craft mixology-led cocktails and glamorous rock and roll music.

Already becoming one of hottest and lavish venues the town has to offer, its interior is influenced by the rich history and distinctive architecture of the Treasury Building in Palmyra Square. Whilst retaining the original parquet floor, Kuckoo maintains its theme of gold, black and red whilst importing a stunning gold ceiling from the USA with JR’s fluid finance.

With five bars now part of the Kuckoo group, owner Chris Powell said “Our ethos is all about having fun and letting loose in a comfortable and glamorous environment, and we wanted to bring this to Warrington.”

The centrepiece of this stunning spectacle is a fully lit stone bar, which effortlessly takes the bar from its chilled daytime atmosphere into the rocking early hours. The bespoke nature of this bar is why it has been shortlisted for The Publican’s Best Late Night Operator Award.

Chris reached out to Johnson Reed as he required a finance specialist with imagination and an appetite for Quirky Kit. From the truly bespoke bar, to the beautifully crafted booths, to the speakers rocking the night away, Jamie at Johnson Reed used his insights, experience and common sense to secure the perfect finance package for Chris at Kuckoo.
