The curtain has been lifted on a new VIP bar in Lincolnshire following the completion of building work by Lindum.
Skegness’ Embassy Theatre has unveiled its new £250,000 ‘Upstairs at the Embassy’ room, which has seen redundant space on the theatre’s third floor transformed into a luxury bar, with décor designed to transports you back to the days of sophisticated Hollywood glamour.
The transformation has been carried out by Lincoln-based Lindum and was revealed at a special performance of the Theatre’s 2018 Panto, Cinderella.
The venue is initially taking bookings for VIP experience packages for pre, interval and post-show entertaining but further developments for corporate entertaining and special functions are being developed throughout 2019.
Supported by venue operators, the Magna Vitae Trust for Leisure and Culture and funded by partners East Lindsey District Council, the development has been masterminded by Theatre manager Pollyanne Trapmore-Shaw.
Councillor Steve Kirk said: “I’m delighted that the ‘Upstairs at the Embassy’ project has been completed, adding a wonderful new experience to the Theatre. The District Council has already provided significant funding for improvements at the pool and fitness facilities in Skegness this year.”
Lindum’s contracts manager Paul Jenkinson added: “It has been fantastic to be involved in a project that will add something totally different to the night time economy in Skegness.
“As a Lincolnshire construction company, working at such a well-known local landmark has been great. The work had to be planned around the Embassy Theatre’s busy schedule, so we didn’t interrupt performances or dominate the car park with deliveries when customers needed to find spaces.”
