We set out to create something a little different for Dundee, something that all big cities have - a late night cocktail bar, serving great drinks, great food and great live music until the wee hours of the night.
As for most new start businesses the road was a little longer than we expected with a few up hill battles to face pre-open but we are here now, and we couldn't be happier with the feedback received as we continue to grow.
We still have many things to achieve as a business but securing key accounts and sponsorship like the Dundee University Medics Society and sponsors of Dundee Stars were key to us integrating into the city. We are also thrilled to be the main drinks sponsor for the 2018 Courier Business Awards - this for us, is massive!
We are working hard to launch the kitchen, and still searching for some quality bands that offer something different but these are things that will grow into the business organically.
71 Brewing — we work closely with the guys at 71 brewery. They are producing some great craft beers that are more local to us. Every year we host the bars at Westfest Dundee. We look forward to working with them again.
Dundee Stars — it's a well known fact if you know us that we love ice-hockey and that means we love to support our local team the Dundee Stars. Pach will be in the bar often, sitting at his bar stool and Johan is flatmates with Chris.
Tom's/Westhouse/Tinsmith/Gallery48 — we are always looking to bring more people to Dundee and more to the point, the area where we are based. We believe its not ALL about the V&A and waterfront, but its about providing the locals with some great bars that can cater to both and our friends across the road sure do help us with this.
This history of this building was a big reason as to why we decided to launch our concept here. Sessions bar was a massive hit back in the day and before that bands like Oasis and Supergrass have graced our 4 walls, playing gigs here. While the V&A is maybe the best thing to happy to Dundee for some time, we thought it was key we made a bar that suits the visitors of the waterfront and staying for the weekend, but also for the locals.
We think we have achieved all this and more, the feedback has been great, and we now think we are starting to be known as a bit of a speakeasy with the fact we have no signage, word of mouth being key to visiting us and some old signage "Club Mondo" lightbox alive and well on top of our building, as a nod to what once was.
If you have any old photos of the old Sessions, Lucifer's Mill, Club Mondo, Toff's or anything else this building was upstairs, please get in touch to share!
