HINCKLEY’S former Gravity pub, located on Regent Street, is set for a ‘Revival’ as a new management team and set of owners are working around-the-clock to transform the former sports bar into a new bar.

The newly-announced venture is named Revival and will be a bar and live music venue, who will serve pints to pub-goers from their ‘late bar’ and kitchen staff will cook up ‘proper’ food.

The exciting announcement comes just three weeks after The Gravity made an announcement on Monday 3 August that they had they permanently closed their doors.

Bosses at the new boozer have explained that they’re aiming to ‘revive Hinckley’s town centre’.

In a promotional poster on social media for the venue, it reads: “The days of The Gravity are over, it’s time for… Revival.”

The bar are aiming to open their doors publicly to pub-goers around late August or early September.

Revival are a late bar who say that they are offering ‘something different to all the rest’ with live music being advertised.

On Sunday 9 August, the new employees and publicans at Revival had started their painting where the exterior Gravity signage once stood and has since been pulled down.

A spokesperson for Revival said: “Our mission is to revive Hinckley’s town centre and to offer something for everyone.

“Revival will be a new place to go for drinks with friends, to listen to live music, and enjoy excellent food.

“The reason we’ve taken on the building and decided on our name Revival is because we really want to keep Hinckley’s night life alive and restore it back to what it used to be.

“We also want to offer somewhere with a new atmosphere for Hinckley, whether you’re looking for a good night out with friends, or a nice meal with the family.”

Revival will exclusively be revealing more exciting news over the coming weeks over on their official Facebook page, as they are staying very tight-lipped on the new project at this moment in time.

Live music nights will be hosted at the venue and will feature local singers, bands, and a resident DJ alongside guest DJ’s on event nights.

The newly-renovated pub have considered the idea of event evenings that could feature comedians and other types of entertainment ‘if it works’ for the venue and if it’s what the people of Hinckley want.

Revival’s spokesperson later added: “As a local business we’d love to give local entertainers of all types a platform to support them.”

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be served at the venue and the classic ‘sports pub grub’ best known from The Gravity has been dropped as a whole, as it didn’t fit the direction that Revival are heading in with the new venture.

More details on Revival’s new food and revamped menu will appear on their official Facebook page very soon.
