Re­brand for pop­u­lar bar

Birmingham Post - - NEWS -

A BIRM­ING­HAM city cen­tre bar has closed to un­dergo a re­vamp and re­brand.

Après, in Sum­mer Row, which is pop­u­lar with pub-go­ers keen to watch live sport, will re­launch as The Texan Sports Cafe Bar.

De­tails about the new ven­ture are lim­ited but it is likely to con­tinue be­ing a mag­net for sports fans.

The clo­sure of Après fol­lows the end of sis­ter bars in Sut­ton Cold­field, Lich­field and Chel­tenham.

The group, which also in­cluded Mechu and Fleet Street Kitchen in Sum­mer Row, was owned by Town and Coun­try Inns.

The com­pany fell into ad­min­is­tra­tion late last year, cit­ing the on­go­ing road­works at­tached to the £500 mil­lion Par­adise project nearby among the chief causes.

The bars were then sold to FSK Group which has since closed Mechu, ren­o­vated the unit and re­opened its as M Bar.
