Bitters 'n' twisted to open new bistro and bar at Birmingham Repertory Theatre

Birmingham Repertory Theatre has today announced a new partnership with Bitters ‘n’ Twisted with the launch of Marmalade – a new bistro and bar.

Bitters ‘n’ Twisted, the company behind six other quality independent venues in Birmingham, will open their latest venture at The REP in Centenary Square in February 2015. Launched by owner Matt Scriven in 2006, Bitters ‘n’ Twisted’s other venues in Birmingham include The Jekyll and Hyde, Bodega, The Rose Villa Tavern, Island Bar and the New Inn.

The new bistro and bar overlooking Centenary Square, Birmingham will feature an eclectic mix of furnishings and bold décor offering a warm, charming and inviting environment. It will include a relaxed dining area serving great value, simple yet tasty food.

The bespoke menu will offer exciting flavours and comforting classics coupled with the style and passion that only an independent operator can offer. A pre-theatre menu will be priced at £15.95 for two courses and £19.95 for three and bar will offer a varied choice of light lunches and bar snacks and will provide customers with handpicked quality wines, local ales, craft bottle beers and a range of cocktails.

Matt Scriven of Bitters ‘n’ Twisted said of the opening:

“Marmalade will be something really special and a new direction for the Bitters ‘n’ Twisted family. The team here have all worked hard to launch something welcoming and exciting that has a different style and feel to our other venues but one that is still fuelled by our passion for great food, great drinks and great service.The new offering highlights The REP’s commitment to enhancing the customer experience whilst reaching a broader audience."

Trina Jones, General Manager at Birmingham Repertory Theatre commented:

“Our partnership with Bitters ‘n’ Twisted heralds an exciting time for us. We’ve worked closely with Matt Scriven and his team to create a catering offer that will appeal to all of our customers, whether it’s a couple wanting to sit down for a meal pre-show or professionals who want a coffee over a meeting or those simply wanting to enjoy a drink after work.
Many of our customers want for a more relaxed catering offer at the theatre that offers the choice of either a set-course menu or a light snack so this sees us taking another step in significantly enhancing our customer experience. It was essential for us that Marmalade is seen as a place for everyone interested in good food and not only a restaurant for theatre goers.”
