Bar launch a suc­cess for friends

Macclesfield Express - - GARRY THE HAT - KAREN BRIT­TON

TWO friends hosted a busy launch party at their new bar ven­ture af­ter team­ing up with a town cen­tre cafe owner.

Jor­dan Wil­son and Kevin Broome, both 21 from Bolling­ton, launched their bar Wil­son and Broome’s at Amuse Cafe on Ch­ester­gate. They teamed up with cafe owner, Ju­lia Mar­shall, af­ter Jor­dan got chat­ting to her while work­ing his other job at Cinemac.

The pair wel­comed around 120 peo­ple to their first night, sell­ing more than 100 of their spe­cial­ity cock­tails.

Jor­dan said: “We were so pleased with the turnout. The mu­sic act we were meant to have can­celled on the morn­ing of our launch but the own­ers of the now closed Cabin 5150 stepped in and found us So­phie Stock who was fan­tas­tic. We want to thank ev­ery­one who came, we had a great time.”

Jor­dan has an­other year left on a busi­ness man­age­ment de­gree and Kevin has just grad­u­ated. Ju­lia has given them tips on how to run a small busi­ness.

The bar uses an app which al­lows guests to cre­ate an on­line playlist.

Jor­dan said: “Kevin and I wanted to try some­thing a bit dif­fer­ent in Mac­cles­field and Ju­lia’s given us this ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity.”

Wil­son & Broome’s is open on Thurs­day, Fri­day and Satur­day from 6.30pm.
