A new bar is coming to Hull - and its logo looks very familiar

By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 13 Nov 2017

A mysterious new venue is asking people to come up with Hull-inspired names to create a drink on its cocktail menu.

The new bar has been posting teaser images of its logo for a few weeks on several social media sites, using the handle “old name, new place”.

Now it has revealed the full “L” design and although the people behind the bar are staying coy about its name for now, some people have said it reminds them of former nightclub, LA’s.

With the new £25m DoubleTree by Hilton Hull development shortly to open on the site of LA’s in Ferensway, could the new bar be connected to here?

A spokeswoman for the bar would not confirm or deny this, but said: “Although our name will be very familiar to people, our concept is a totally new one for the area and it has been fantastic to have received such support already from the people of Hull for our new place with an old name.

“We will be revealing all about what we are going to call the bar and where we are very soon but before then, we want people to give us their ideas for cocktail names which relate to the city.

“Our fabulous mixologists will then create a bespoke concoction to match the winning entry and if yours is chosen, you’ll get to come along to our exclusive launch night and be served your very own drink.”
