A TGI Fridays cocktail bar in Harrogate is set to open in November, according to the company’s chief executive.

The new bar and restaurant, called 63rd+1st, will be based in the former Ask Italian restaurant on Albert Street.

The American restaurant chain has already been granted a late night alcohol licence and advertising consent by Harrogate Borough Council for the venue.

Now Robert Cook, chief executive of TGI Fridays and 63rd+1st, has confirmed that the bar is set to open next month.

In a trading update for Hostmore, which is the parent company of both chains, he said:

“We are delighted with the continued strong performance of our two brands, Fridays and 63rd+1st.

“Fridays continues to outperform the market and we are opening our next two 63rd+1st sites – in Glasgow later in September and Harrogate in November – following a successful launch in Cobham earlier this year in May.”

The Stray Ferret asked TGI Fridays if there was a specific date for opening, but did not receive a response by time of publication.

The company launched the new cocktail-led bar and restaurant venture last year. It is named after the location of the original restaurant in Manhattan.

The company has promised it will be a “vibrant meeting place” and that it will have the feel of a New York loft in the 1960s.

When the new brand was announced last year, Mr Cook said in a statement that “audiences are becoming increasingly discerning and their attitudes towards food and drink are evolving”.
