A bar is undergoing a six figure investment to be transformed into a craft beer pub, stocking over 40 specialist ales and beers.

Artisan Tap, formerly Voodoo Lounge in Wooer Street, Falkirk will open it’s doors on Thursday, December 10 after a huge renovation project.

The large corner bar, owned by Hawthorn Leisure, will also serve wines and sparkling Frizzante on tap as well as a huge range of food, including sour dough pizza, paninis, deli platters and cakes.

Popular ales including Scottish brands Brew Dog, West Brewery and St Mungos will be for sale and the winter cocktail menu will be available.

The bar will host a VIP night on Tuesday, December 15 with live music and special offers.

Headed by Cameron Clark, Artisan Tap will have a coffee shop feel and be a million miles away from a traditional boozer, with rustic wood and locally smithed iron.

Mark McGinty, managing director of Hawthorn Leisure, added: “We are delighted to be bringing to life the vision and passion of creating a great bar that works for a traditional Scottish community. It is another example of the commitment we have in making sure our pubs continue to thrive, combining tradition with contemporary features.”

Falkirk will be the fourth Artisan Tap, after branches in Sheffield, Aylesbury and Pontefract.

The venue was Voodoo until recently and before that was the Canteen and owned by Rosie’s and City owners CLG.
