Lincoln Walkabout bar closed during £500k refit

Sneak peek: Work has begun on a £5000k refurbishment to the Australian-themed Walkabout bar on Lincoln High Street.

The Walkabout bar on Lincoln High Street closed its doors as it undergoes a £500,000 refurbishment that is set to create 10 new jobs.

The Australian-themed bar is scheduled to reopen on Thursday, November 21 with a VIP launch night featuring live music and including an authentic didgeridoo player.

Once completed, the venue will boast new additions such as the ‘Reef Bar’, where split screens will project under-sea footage and beach action.

The new layout will feature 2 VIP pool table areas in the ‘sporting and chill out zone’ upstairs. In addition, new seating areas will aim to create an ‘al-fresco atmosphere’.

The new menu will offer light bites, main meals and party platters with a 50% discount on ‘Aussie food and drink’ between 5pm and 7pm Monday to Friday.

A refreshed drinks menu also includes new cocktails, wines and beers.

Dave Austin, Walkabout General Manager, said: “This is an incredibly exciting time for us and we can’t wait for our customers to see the transformation.

“We’re now taking party & food bookings so they can come and see the amazing new Walkabout first-hand,” he added.
