Birmingham Post - - NEWS - Tam­lyn Jones Busi­ness Cor­re­spon­dent

A RE­VAMPED rooftop bar and restau­rant is set to open at Birm­ing­ham’s Re­sorts World com­plex early next year.

Renowned chef Andy Wa­ters has run his epony­mous restau­rant at the en­ter­tain­ment venue next to the NEC in Soli­hull since it opened in 2015 but it is now re­lo­cat­ing to the com­plex’s tenth floor.

The new restau­rant, which is due to open on Jan­uary 10, will com­bine with space cur­rently oc­cu­pied by The Sky Bar and will be called Sky by Wa­ters.

The restau­rant will be able to serve dou­ble the num­ber of cov­ers com­pared with the ex­ist­ing Wa­ters Restau­rant and will have a pri­vate din­ing area, a cock­tail bar and ‘se­cret gar­den’.

Gent­ing Ho­tel guests will also be served venue.

Mr Wa­ters said: “I am look­ing for­ward, along with all of my Wa­ters team, to be mov­ing to this stun­ning new lo­ca­tion within Re­sorts World.

“Over the past three years, we have es­tab­lished a loyal cus­tomer base but the num­ber of cov­ers avail­able break­fast from the new has been chal­leng­ing.

“With this fan­tas­tic new restau­rant, I will be able to in­crease the num­ber of cov­ers which is great and we will now have a fab­u­lous bar and se­cret gar­den to en­hance the ex­pe­ri­ence for guests. I am so ex­cited about this new op­por­tu­nity and con­fi­dent that we are cre­at­ing a bar and restau­rant that will be very spe­cial.”

The in­vest­ment in Sky by Wa­ters comes as Re­sorts World cel­e­brates its third birth­day in Oc­to­ber.

Dur­ing the lat­est year of trad­ing, 3.8 mil­lion guests were wel­comed through the doors. Other brands to take up res­i­dency there in re­cent months in­clude Miller & Carter, Zizzi and Beauty Out­let.

Elsewhere on the NEC cam­pus, the ex­hi­bi­tion cen­tre has un­veiled the first phase of a mul­ti­mil­lion-pound re­vamp at en­ter­tain­ment and con­fer­ence com­plex. The ex­te­ri­ors of halls one and five have been dressed in a new cladding which can be back­lit and change colours as needed.

The over­all ren­o­va­tion is ex­pected to take three years and also in­cludes 185 high-spec dig­i­tal dis­plays across the site.
