This week we have been working on the designs for a new bar in the centre of Manchester, scheduled to open at the end of May. Opposite the Bridgewater Hall and called appropriately ‘ Barbirolli ‘ ,  it’s going to be a classy upmarket bar, open all day and with live late night music featuring prominently – acts already scheduled include ABC and Sister Sledge. We are working on classy feel that recaptures the glamour and buzz of a 30′s cocktail bar – presentation sketches are posted opposite – and are  quite excited about designing another bar in the city centre.

last week The Lake Court Hotel at Carlisle that Paul has been working on opened its doors to the public – we did 28 bedrooms together with the grounnd floor public areas. … pictures are opposite, and we think that it looks very good.
