Work has now been completed on a refurbishment project at a unique, independent city-centre cocktail bar – Kuckoo Chester, Cheshire.
The £60,000 renovation of the popular 200 square metres night spot was showcased at a reopening event on Friday 20th January.
As the first and only rock and roll cocktail bar to open in the city, the centrepiece of the renovation is an eye opening ‘Onyx’ style bar – a striking, modern bar top and fascia, backlit in red to create a warm glow.
The bespoke design, made from granite and imported from Italy, was engineered offsite by Merseyside-based, Granite House, and installed as a modular system to ensure quick and easy installation.
Due to the premises being a high trafficked area, especially in the entrance hall and bar area, the current porcelain tiled floor has been replaced with a more durable and hard wearing granite floor covering, in a striking black with a sparkle effect.
The specification of granite also means the floor covering can be polished, delivering a professional and smart appearance for end users, and a low maintenance solution for owners of the bar.
Modernised washrooms were installed to update the current flushing valves within the lavatories as well as new wash basins to ensure durability and longevity.
New artwork has also been added to the walls, which include portraits and photographs of past and present rock and roll icons – ensuring the brand is echoed throughout the premises.
The newly refurbished Kuckoo also includes luxurious leather and velvet seating areas. Red, neon light boxes, spelling out ‘Kuckoo’ remain throughout the bar, in-keeping with the fun and creative brand.
