Cracking kick off for new Ilkley sports bar
New Premium, Ilkley Sports Bar; Hub-Vybe has opened its doors and is already establishing itself as the social hub of the town.
The launch of the venue on Friday 31st January was well attended by key, local Ilkley businesses and personalities, who came out to show support for the young, entrepreneurial couple behind the venue, Kezia Bellamy and Lawrence Doyle.
Guests enjoyed samples from the new menu which included HUB classic burgers and chicken wings, as well as light bites of jalapeno poppers, sweet potato fries and onion rings. Drinks including plenty of fizz, HUB Cider, HUB Lager and HUB Blonde were also flowing.
Chris Morris from Shoo Social Media who attended the event said:
“We loved the vybe. The service was exceptional and personal. This will be a fantastic venue for clubs, groups and societies to meet up”
Attendees were also given the first chance to view the considerable refurbishments, which include the new booth seating, brand new bar design and state of the art new audio-visual equipment, screens and entertainment that will be on offer.
Kezia said: “It was heart-warming to see all the friendly faces both old and new and to have the support of so many people in and around Ilkley. The concept went down very well, and it was great to see such a range of people interacting over our very own food, drinks and games. The HUB team absolutely smashed it and I am super proud of them. Thank you so much to everyone that came along on the night and supported us.”
Hub-Vybe has since launched its food and daily promotional offerings. One of its first, key sporting events to be shown, will be the Fury v Wilder fight on Saturday 22nd February at 4.30am.
Venue opening hours are Sunday to Wednesdays 12 Noon to 11pm, Thursdays 12 Noon to Midnight and Friday and Saturdays 12 Noon to 3am.
