Roof bar and restaurant to open at ResortsWorld
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.
