Full renovation underway

The Penny Bank on Scunthorpe High street is undergoing a full venue refurbishment. This venue has improved so much over the last couple of years. I myself probably wouldn’t have given it a second look a few years ago but it has gone from strength to strength. Great live music nights and a good atmosphere with a varied age range. 

Rumor is there will be a dancefloor! But it is very unlikely there will be a downstairs toilet. It has been mentioned and looked into on numerous occasions but the venue has very limited downstairs space. The dark wood colour scheme that has stuck around for years might also be disappearing.

New cocktail bar?

We don’t know for sure, all anyone knows so far is a Request was submitted for permission to serve alcohol at former Indian restaurant “Spice Village” next to The Baths Hall. Person applied for use of venue to be changed to “cocktail bar”. It is unknown if this plan will go ahead or whether a new bar will be created.
