Champagne corks will be popping this Friday at Frenchgate Shopping Centre – when a new prosecco bar “pops-up” in Doncaster.
The bar, Prosecco Pit Stop, is opening to customers on 2 September outside Debenhams on the first floor.
The temporary addition to the shopping centre has been launched in the run up to the famous Ladbrokes St Leger Festival at Doncaster Racecourse, which takes place from 7 to 10 September. Fans of fizz will be delighted to know that the bar will be relocating to a more permanent position within the shopping later this year.
The bar will serve a range of proscecco, champagne, world beers and other beverages and is owned and operated by local publicans Shaun and Lucy Applegate of The Station Hotel in Blaxton.
Prosecco Pit Stop will be furnished with bistro style tables and chairs, and will feature a lifelike lawn to give customers a casual retreat during or after a day of retail therapy.
Daniel Matters, commercialisation manager at Frenchgate Shopping Centre, said: “We’re really excited to be launching our pop-up prosecco bar at Frenchgate, which is a fantastic temporary addition to enhance our customers’ shopping experience.
“What better way to for people to relax during or after a busy day shopping with us than a lovely chilled glass of fizz!
“It’ll also be a great way to welcome race-goers to Doncaster for the upcoming St Ledger Festival, which is a huge event for the town.”
During its time at Frenchgate, the bar will also be teaming up with some of the top retailers based at the shopping centre to provide special offers, discounts and treats for customers.
