Bar 1888 to open in South Street, Bourne
The wait is over for people dreaming of wine and tapas, as a new bar is now on the menu in Bourne.
Bar 1888, located in South Street in the former barbers' shop, will open its doors for the first time tomorrow (July 21).
The owners of the new tapas bar, Rob Diiorio and Toni Cammarata, have a passion for food and drink and wanted to bring something different to Bourne.
They have always had a dream of opening a bar which would be cosy, and serve quality Italian and Spanish wine and tapas food. The pair felt Bourne High Street would be a good place to start.
Rob said: “Our plan to open a wine bar had started way before the first lockdown and we have worked tirelessly to try and get the bar ready for when lockdown restrictions ease and people are able to socialise again."
The premises has been converted to offer seated areas and a small covered area to the rear or the property.
Bar 1888 will offer coffee and light snacks during the day and Italian and Spanish tapas, specially selected wines, craft beers, cocktails, spirits and non-alcoholic drinks during the evening.
Rob said: “When we researched the history of the building we discovered that it was built in 1888 and as we hadn’t yet come up with a name for the bar that we thought worked we decided to call it Bar 1888."
