Pop-up disco bar set for the Christmas season |
A ’70s-themed nightclub is expected to woo revelers this holiday season when Peggy’s Bar opens next month.
The bar, which will run for six weeks until Christmas, will be in the basement of the Chesterhouse Hotel in Douglas, which is currently under renovation.
The company represents a collaboration between events agency Douglas Peggy and Lewis and the Sleepwell Hotel group and aims to provide islanders with a “fun and alternative nightlife experience”.
Jamie Lewis, Director of Peggy and Lewis, said: “It’s great to work with Mark [Wilson] and the Sleepwell Hotel team. What started as a bar conversation during the TT madness quickly turned into a full-blown operation.
Mark Wilson, Managing Director of Sleepwell Hotels, said: “We were impressed with the ‘Big Top’ concept that Jamie and the team created in the TT village of Bushy during the TT period.
“We were eager to work with Peggy and Lewis on a collaborative project and felt the space under the Chesterhouse Hotel would be ideal as it needed a new lease of life.
“The nightlife economy is extremely important to the Isle of Man and we are delighted to add Peggy’s unique nightlife concept to our diverse range of restaurants and hotels. “
Douglas’ new cocktail bar, dubbed an ‘extra chic nightclub’, aims not to be taken too seriously.
Mr. Lewis added, “We pride ourselves on service and customer experience and are committed to an accessible atmosphere. We are open to anyone who enjoys having a good time and being in the company of other like-minded people. Who said the disco was dead?
The space is currently being renovated.
In addition to its cocktails, the bar will offer wines, beers and spirits, as well as a wide variety of non-alcoholic options.
Mr Lewis added: “It is a dream of mine to open my own bar and this collaborative pop-up is a huge first step in achieving that; making my own ideas a reality.” Attitudes towards it alcohol consumption is changing and we recognize that not everyone wants the same thing.
“We turned the place into a special and social space, for which I think there is a huge void in the market.
“We’re channeling the vibes of Studio 54, so expect a unique mashup of everything from 1970.”
Peggy’s has tables to book, a private party room and what they call a “Baby Bar” for small functions.
Peggy’s Bar on the Loch Promenade will open on Thursday 22 November and run until 26 December.
