Almost half-a-million pounds has been spent revamping a Lichfield bar.

The former Apres venue will open under the Walkabout brand on September 24.

The new-look bar will feature VIP areas, pre-bookable booths and new ‘reef bars’ where giant screens show create the illusion of an underwater world.

Sports fans will also be able to book seats to secure the best spot for live games, following the £485,000 revamp.

General manager Victoria Wood said: “Walkabout is famous for legendary party nights, fun, live music, sport and great food, and now Lichfield locals will have this at their fingertips.

“We’re already taking bookings for our opening night and can’t wait for our customers to see the new venue for themselves.”
