A NEW bar is set to open later this month in Rhyl, at a premises previously occupied by another bar.

Tinkers Bar will welcome customers to 27 Wellington Road for the first time on Friday, June 21 – formerly the home of The North, which closed last August.

James Tinker, owner of Tinkers Bar, said: “We are giving the bar a new lease of life, with a brand new look.

“The bar will trade from 11am-3.30am - during the day, it will be a bar, and by night, a ‘late bar’.

“We are aiming for the new bar to open on June 21, with our resident DJ, Paul Maffia, playing back to back with Jade Wilson for the opening.”

Rhyl bar set for ‘heart-breaking’ closure after 11 years of business

The current Tinkers Bar in Rhyl, which is situated at 17-19 Water Street and opened last July, will be rebranded and soon trade under a different name, meanwhile.

This will be run as an “over-25s bar, with ‘90s and ‘noughties’ throwback music,” James added.

When The North closed last August, a spokesperson for the business said there were “quite a few” reasons behind its closure, but attributed it mainly to financial pressures.

It had been open in Rhyl for 11 years prior to shutting its doors.
