Unless you’ve been living on another planet for the past few weeks, you’ve probably noticed that Barca has been closed due to the ongoing refurbishment. We understand that some of you are bound to be feeling a little disappointed at being unable to drink at Manchester’s favourite bar, however it’s finally time for you to dry your eyes- because we’re about to open up again!

With our refurbishment nearing completion, we’ve already scheduled our VIP Re-Launch Night to take place on May 12th, and that night will signal the start of a brand new chapter in the Barca story. It’s important for us to stress that we aren’t undergoing any management changes or anything like that, and this is simply a refurbishment job that’s going make our bar even better!

However, we’re also hosting a special sneak peek re-opening over the Easter weekend, meaning that you can get yourselves down here to grab a drink and check out what’s been done with the place. Only our downstairs and outdoor areas will be open, with work continuing on our upstairs suites right up until the VIP night next week.

But our downstairs bar will be running as usual- the only difference being some fantastic changes to our décor and layout. We’re incredibly proud of the work we’ve been doing here, and it’s great to see that our designs are finally taking shape- it’s fair to say that we can’t wait to share our new look with you!

We’ll be opening for the weekend on Friday 17th April, and you’ll have until the following Monday to get yourself down here to see the changes for yourself. Forecasters are already predicting an incredibly sunny weekend, so you can spend the day relaxing out in our beer garden and soaking up some rays!

All of us at Barca would just like to say how good it feels to be back, and we hope this special Easter event gives you a proper taste of what is to come when we open up properly! We’re also running a little competition on our Facebook page, so you and your friends have a chance to enjoy a free bottle of prosecco- so go ahead and take a look at how to enter!

If you’ve missed the best bar in Manchester as much as we have, then we look forward to seeing you over the weekend- you’d be mad to miss out!
