Take a look inside Cleethorpes' newest bar - Moody Blues
By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 6 Dec 2018
Cleethorpes' latest bar - Moody Blues - hopes to leave customers feeling anything but as it aims to go easy on the wallet while wowing the senses.
Live music and fresh food are a key part of the offer from Sean Desouza, who goes it alone having worked at a number of venues in the area, and latterly as one of the partners in Relish.
He wants to create an affordable offering pared down from the Sea View Street quarter, while priding itself on the fayre.
And when it comes to price, he is modelling it just like the location.

“In the middle is where we see ourselves,” he said, as he opens after investing £60,000, with further additions to come as a theme is worked up. “We want something different here, we don’t want to be seen as top end or bottom, somewhere in the middle. I am still coming up with ideas, and have scribbles on paper everywhere.
“We have a food menu, it is all freshly cooked, and is in a bar style rather than restaurant.”
A dark interior, punctuated by candlelight, gives the Alexandra Road venue an intimate vibe.

“We are looking to get bands in, live singers and DJs on the weekends,” Mr Desouza enthused.
Once The Art Bar, launched under Mark Brennan’s stewardship, it has most recently been Paw Thai. That has just moved into the neighbouring Steak Easy restaurant, which closed after a run in the resort.
A team of 12 has been taken on by Mr Desouza.
