Camerons launches new bar concept in Scarborough

Camerons Brewery is launching its latest bar concept, Sanctuary, in Scarborough tonight (Thursday 10 May, from 5pm), with food and drink samples, and live acoustic music in the bar from X Factor semi-finalist, Brad Swainston.

The bar, which is located in the centre of Scarborough on St. Nicholas Street, was formerly known as the Blue Lounge, and has been extensively refurbished during the past month in order to deliver the fantastic new brand for Camerons. The North East brewery has invested over £300k into the redevelopment of the former Blue Lounge site.

Sanctuary opens with an eclectic range of lagers, beers and ciders, and includes 4 cask ales as well as 2 rotating craft keg beer lines. In addition, the venue offers an extensive range of premium wines and spirits, plus an exciting new cocktail menu developed by Camerons' own mixologist.

Sanctuary will serve food daily between 11am - 9pm, with the menu including a great range of classic pub dishes as well as international cuisine.

There is free live acoustic music in the bar every Friday from 6pm - 8pm, plus DJ’s on weekends to form a key part of the weekly entertainment at the venue. Sanctuary also features a separate function area upstairs to cater for special events, business meetings, and cocktail masterclasses.

Jim Bentley, retail managed house director for Camerons Brewery, said, “We've been so pleased to be investing in a new concept for our Scarborough venue. The Blue Lounge was a key venue in our pub group, but we felt the time was right to revamp the look and offer at the site.

“Sanctuary now offers customers a great food and drinks range, with dog friendly daytimes, and will now transform into a late night bar every evening, serving a selection of signature cocktails as well as premium beers, wines and spirits.”
