Revolution Bars Positive Despite August Riots – It Could Have Been Worse
With the early August riots seeing the country thrown into chaos, those worst affected were the retail and pub trades. However, Revolution Vodka bars remain confident that the British public will bounce back and normality will resume.
August is generally a very busy time for pubs and bars with the summer weather bringing people out for alfresco eating and drinking. Sadly however, the rioting put an end to that with many businesses closing for days on end and staff left feeling nervous that they might get caught up in the trouble.
Revolution Bars, with over 60 sites throughout the UK, were worried about bars located in the centre of the controversy – in particular their London, Manchester and Birmingham premises. A spokesman for the company said, “We were very fortunate not to have businesses damaged, but the knock on effect has been detrimental”
Though they were lucky not to be affected by damage caused by looters the chain has suffered substantially from low sales across the days that followed the disturbance, with trade falling by 20 per cent especially at their city sites. It seems people have been very wary about getting back out into towns and cities and the effect has meant less customers especially during evenings and weekends. However, Revolution remains optimistic, with the belief that the British public are resilient and will bounce back to normal soon.
Revolution Bars are well known for the selection of specialist Vodka with 30 homemade flavours, such as apple, bakewell tart and chilli. However they also offer a wide selection of classic cocktails, wines and bottled beers. Their dedication to offering the best food means customers can enjoy a varied menu for both lunch and dinner, with certain meals having a very special Vodka twist. With bars across the UK, you are guaranteed to find a great atmosphere whichever site you choose and it’s this lively attitude that makes Revolution bars the perfect setting for a birthday celebration, hen party or corporate event.
