The owners of a Leominster bar are keeping everything crossed that their application to extend opening hours is granted.

The Quarters, in Leominster, opened in December and has since become popular with locals as a venue that provides a fun, safe atmosphere with a wide selection of drink offerings and music to get you on the dancefloor.

Having undergone a full renovation and installing soundproofing measures, the team behind the popular Leominster bar, have applied to extend their licencing hours.

“Our customers have asked time and time again if we can stay open later” says Laura Rigney, one of the four owners.

“We have worked closely with our neighbours to ensure that they are not disturbed as a result of our music or our customers and we’re happy to say that this has now been achieved!”

The Quarters currently opens on Friday and Saturday nights but has applied for extended hours seven days a week.

“This is simply to allow us to offer our venue as an alternative option for weekday wedding and private functions” continues Laura, “If the application were granted, we would continue to open at the weekends and only alter that for special occasions, functions or events.”

Currently, there is only one other venue in Leominster that has a late-night offering so options are limited if you do want to have a few after hours drinks.

With lots of events in the diary and a range of cocktails ready to be launched, The Quarters looks like a popular addition to the town’s night-time economy.

The bar first hit the headlines when they announced their intended ‘Dress Code’ which included No Hoodies, this certainly provoked a reaction! “We did initially say no hoodies however, since opening and speaking to many of the locals, we aren’t embarrassed to admit that we were wrong! The No Hoodie rule has since been lifted.”
