Owner's exciting plans for Avenues bar after changing its name

By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 11 Mar 2019

There are big plans for a popular Hull bar after it took on a new name under the management of a familiar face.

Adam Bryson set up KerbEdge in Princes Avenue in 2014 and it went from strength-to-strength but, following a split from his former business partners, he says he is looking forward to returning the bar to its roots.

Re-branded as ‘Crafted’, the bar will take on a new menu combining old favourites with new ideas, as well as looking towards catering more for vegan and vegetarian customers.

“The idea of Crafted is crafted beers, hand-crafted burgers, crafted rolls, hand-crafted sandwiches – there the kind of ideas behind it,” Mr Bryson said.  “We’ve got our great burgers and expanded the menu. We’ve got some new food menu items on, reinvigorated our cocktail menu.

“We’re expanding the burger range so there’s new burgers going on. New chicken burgers, increasing our veggie and vegan because that’s been a big thing over the last year – the amount of vegans that come in. A new dessert menu and more cocktails.

Inside Crafted

The re-brand comes after Mr Bryson went separate ways with his former business partners, meaning Crafted is the name of the Princes Avenue bar and events arm, while KerbEdge in St Stephen’s Shopping Centre is a separate entity.

He says much of the original creative team that got his business off the ground in 2014 have returned to the bar, as they look to bring back the vibe and offerings that made it so popular.

Reflecting on what has gone on before, he said: “We expanded too quickly, did too much and we want to concentrate on what got us where we were in the first place really.

“We want to get back to our roots and get back to what made us successful in the first place which is great products and great service.

“We can concentrate on here and we are here all the time and we’re not trying to run before we can walk."

In the summer, Adam wants to have a gazebo built at the front of the property to mirror Marrakech next door.

He says he wants to turn the front of the building into a mini cocktail garden to provide more comfortable outdoor seating.
