It’s recently been announced that The Bitters ‘n’ Twisted group, behind some of Birminghams most successful offerings such as Bodega, The Rose Villa Tavern and The Jekyll & Hyde are teaming up with the Rep Theatre to bring a new Bistro & Bar to the Birmingham Food Scene.
The venue, which will overlook centenary square, will feature an eclectic mix of furnishings and bold décor and include a relaxed dining area serving great value, simple yet tasty food. They will offer a bespoke pre-theatre menu, priced at £15.95 for two courses and £19.95 for three and the bar will offer a varied choice of light lunches and snacks alongside handpicked wines, local ales, craft beers and cocktails.
Trina Jones, GM at the Rep states that ‘Our partnership with Bitters ‘n’ Twisted heralds an exciting time for us. We’ve worked closely with Matt Scriven and his team to create a catering offer that will appeal to all of our customers, whether it’s a couple wanting to sit down for a meal pre-show or professionals who want a coffee over a meeting or those simply wanting to enjoy a drink after work.’
Sounds good to me!
Marmalade seems to be offering a much more relaxed and fun dining experience for pre theatre as well as all through the day, quite a bit different to the previous high offerings from Searcys, who ended their contract with the Rep back in 2014. I look for ward to trying it out!
Here are some of the artist impressions of Marmalade – keep your eyes peeled on social media for their opening date and more news!
