The Yard is back in town

After a 2-year absence popular Ilkley bar; The Yard is back on the scene with a new sports bar feel.

The first concept for The Yard was created way back in 1999 and the bar enjoyed welcoming thousands of customers for over 20 years for food, drink and events. In recent years the bar changed ownership and transformed itself into a sports bar under the name Hub-Vybe, now it is reincarnated once again as ‘The Yard Sports Bar’. The business will bring back the best bits of The Yard and continue with Hub-Vybe’s excellent format of offering a great environment to watch sport, eat, drink and dance.

Adam Lewis owner of Yard Sports Bar said: “I am delighted to be reopening The Yard Sports Bar and bringing it back into the Twisted Bars family. We’ve got many amazing memories from our 20+ years history at The Yard and can’t wait to make new ones. We will be focused on Sport and entertainment and look forward to welcoming customers back, both old and new.”

The venue re-opened its doors Wednesday 16th February. Food, drink, games (shuffleboard, pool, darts) functions and celebrations will continue to be a focus. Other highlights to look out for over the coming months include special launch food and drink promotions, and live sport action including all the Leeds Utd, Premier League and most key fixtures in a wide range of sports to suit all tastes.
