Ilkley bar on track to celebrate first Birthday!


Ilkley’s premium cocktail, drink and food venue, ‘The Ticket Office’, is set to celebrate its first Birthday on Wednesday 5 December 2018.


The bar which opened last year after an extensive refurbishment, was transformed from a former restaurant into a stylish and elegant over 21s food & drinks venue, with a nod to the building’s former railway heritage.  Since opening it has sold an unbelievable 14,500 cocktails and raised £550 with the sale of its special ‘Rhubarb Triangle’ cocktail for local charity, ‘Ilkley Candlelighters’.


Lawrence Doyle, General Manager said:


“I’ve really enjoyed our first year. From big functions with hog roasts, the spectacle of the Tour de Yorkshire passing by, to creating exciting and innovative cocktail menu's and launching our food offering, I’ve loved every minute. It’s been particularly humbling to receive such fantastic feedback about the team and service and to see just how warmly the people of Ilkley have welcomed us. Bringing a city centre style bar to Ilkley has definitely worked and I look forward to the company expanding the premium bar concept to other locations in the future"


Lawrence and his team are inviting the good folk of Ilkley and beyond to join in with the celebrations between 4-6pm on Wednesday 5 December, when there will be complimentary free flowing fizz, cocktail samples, taster masterclass sessions and a live DJ, with canapes from the new menu also being offered round at the slightly later time of 6pm.


Cocktail samples that will be doing the round include many classic Ticket Office creations such as their ‘Pornstar Martini’ and signature cocktail the ‘Rhubarb Triangle’, as well as some of the new winter menu offerings; ‘White Chocolate Martini’ and a very Christmassy ‘After Eight’.


Talking about the new winter cocktail menu Lawrence said:

"My favourite cocktail off the new menu has to be the ‘Hot Buttered Rum’, it is a real winter warmer. It’s combination of rum, spices, butterscotch & butter creates a real taste of Christmas! We can’t wait to welcome as many people as possible to help us celebrate our Birthday, as well as giving us the opportunity to say thank you to all our customers for their continued support.”
