New sports bar to open inside Lancaster city centre venue

The Dalton Rooms Sports Bar will open with Vibe nightclub continuing at the back of the venue on Dalton Square

A new sports bar is set to open inside a Lancaster city centre venue.

The Dalton Rooms Sports Bar will open on Friday, June 14 at Dalton Square in Lancaster.

The new sports bar will be inside the premises which is currently fully occupied by Vibe nightclub.

Vibe will continue to run at the back of the building with the sports bar at the front, opening in time for the start of the men's European football championships.

There will be 16 screens for live sport, with one big screen for the first week and a second one being installed a couple of weeks afterwards.

Prior to opening as Vibe, the premises was known as the Dalton Rooms and before that, was home to a Walkabout bar.

Owner Tim Barbary (pictured below), said: "It's a big building and our long-term plan was always to open a sports bar, so the venue can be used during the daytime.

"Everyone knows where the Dalton Rooms is. We're putting in a brand new frontage, and it will be ready for a soft opening when the Euros start on Friday with a full opening on Saturday."

Mr Barbary also runs the Brittlestar wine bar in Morecambe.

The Dalton Rooms Sports Bar will be open every day.

There will be free entry to Vibe nightclub if you are in the bar from 10pm.

Recently Vibe launched a new 'nightclub during the day' hoping to emulate the success of similar events run by Line of Duty actor Vicky McClure.

'The Daytime Club' at Vibe gives ravers the chance to come out during the afternoon and get home well before midnight.
