Sinclair's Bar, Cocktail Lounge & Rooms is launching mid-March in Southport

The new Sinclair’s Bar, Cocktail Lounge & Rooms is set to launch in mid-March, marking a significant milestone in the evolution of one of Southport’s most beloved establishments. 

Formerly known as Peaky Blinders Bar, the decision to rebrand to Sinclair’s pays homage to the legacy of its founder, John Sinclair, who sadly passed away, and celebrates the rich traditions of whiskey bars and public houses in London and New York. 

Sinclair’s, on the corner of Lord Street and Seabank Road in Southport town centre, promises to blend old-world charm and contemporary flair. 

The extensive refurbishment will also see the creation of four new jobs in the local community. 

Inspired by the timeless allure of traditional whiskey bars and public houses, Sinclair’s will continue to offer a vast selection of cask and draught beers, a new classic cocktail menu, and an extensive wine list. 

In addition, Sinclair’s Cocktail Lounge next door to the main bar will offer an exclusive and intimate setting for cocktails and drinks, complementing the vibrant atmosphere of the main bar area. 

The Cocktail Lounge is also available for a wide range of private events. 

The decision to rebrand from Peaky Blinders Bar to Sinclair’s reflects the bar’s evolution, and the enduring legacy of its founder, John Sinclair. His vision for creating a welcoming space where friends can gather, share stories, and create memories will live on in every aspect of Sinclair’s. 

From its warm and inviting atmosphere, to its commitment to provide exceptional service and quality drinks, Sinclair’s heralds a new chapter for the bar now that the TV show has finished.

Melanie Sinclair said:

 “We are excited to introduce Sinclair’s Bar, Cocktail Lounge and Rooms to our loyal customers and the wider community.

“With our rebrand, we aim to pay tribute to John, whilst also embracing the timeless traditions of whiskey bars and public houses. 

“The bar is getting a full refurbishment and a new look, and we are very excited to welcome our existing and new customers to this fabulous location on Lord Street.

“We believe that Sinclair’s will not only honour John’s memory, but also provide visitors with an experience that reflects his passion for hospitality and camaraderie.”

Sinclair’s Bar, Cocktail Lounge and Rooms in Southport is set to open its doors to the public in mid-March, inviting guests to embark on a journey through the rich history and vibrant culture of London and New York’s iconic drinking establishments.
