Food & Drink

A new bar promising dancing bartenders and over 100 cocktails will open in Lincoln on Tuesday, and The Lincolnite went for a sneak preview as the first customer.

Be At One, which is managed by Stonegate Pub Group, will open on the High Street in the former Curiosity Shop on August 9 after more than £750,000 worth of investment.

The bar features an electric colour scheme with teal, pink and blue furnishings throughout. Gold and silver accents complete the space, with LED walls, ceilings, and neon signs lighting up the night. The bar also has an outside terrace area for guests to enjoy.

Lincoln will be the 38th Be At One to be opened by Stonegate Pub Group in England and Wales and General Manager Oskar Wozniak can’t wait to welcome the first guests through the door.

Oskar, who has worked at other Be At One venues in Birmingham and Leeds, told The Lincolnite: “I am excited. Once we’re open and doing what we do best, throwing a great party and making the best cocktails, we look forward to being a go to venue in Lincoln.”

Bar staff at Be At One Lincoln served up a range of cocktails for The Lincolnite, including classics such as Pornstar Martini, as well as its very own ‘Raspberry Beret’ and ‘Pretty Whiskey Business’.

A takeaway in Lincoln has seen its food hygiene rating drop down to one star after an inspection earlier this summer.

Charlie’s Top Kebab & Pizza, which is located at The Roundhouse at 358b High Street next to Lincoln Magistrates Court, was visited by City of Lincoln Council inspectors on June 30, 2022 and the new one star rating was published this week.

Inspectors deemed that improvement is necessary in the area of ‘hygienic food handling’, while major improvement is required in the ‘management of food safety’.

The ‘cleanliness and condition of facilities and building’ was rated as generally satisfactory after the inspection.

The Lincolnite visited Charlie’s Top Kebab & Pizza on Friday afternoon and we were told by a staff member that a manager would be in touch with a response, but no response was received by the time of publication.

Previously the takeaway received four star ratings in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2020 while trading under its previous name of Mr Chippy.

Mr Chippy, which currently has a four star rating, has since relocated slightly further up the High Street on the other side of the road, and is understood to have the same owner.

It’s just over a month until party time as Popworld gets ready to open on Lincoln High Street on Friday, September 9.

Popworld will open in the unit formerly occupied by Fever & Boutique and has the same owners – Stonegate Group after £400,000 worth of investment to transform the site.

From late September, the venue will be open six nights a week with two rooms to choose from every Friday and Saturday evening.

The grand launch event will take place between 8pm and 10pm on Friday, September 9 – book a booth online here.

Popworld said that with popular club nights PopRox and Pop In Their Eyes, described as “karaoke like you’ve never seen it before”, “the venue will soon become a staple of Lincoln’s party scene”.

Lincoln’s partygoers are being told to expect “a bright and bold colour palette of yellows, pinks, aquas and purples, with its signature light up dancefloor and sexy booths a-plenty – an absolute must for a VIP night out.” The club’s signature Poptails will also “make every night out sweeter”.

Popworld Lincoln will have the same style, look and feel as the club in Cheltenham.

Samii Eaton, General Manager at Popworld Lincoln, said: “It’s about time Lincoln got its share of neon lights and bright colours, so it goes without saying that we can’t wait to welcome everyone to our brand-new Popworld.

“We know this will be a great addition to the city, and it won’t be long until we start serving up a bold playlist, a bright venue, and vibes that are certainly one of a kind – the party is about to get started!”

Popworld Lincoln will be open 9am-5am Monday to Thursday, 8pm-5am on Fridays, and 8pm-5am on Saturdays.
