Blossoms member Tom Ogden has opened up about his plans to open a new bar in his hometown of Stockport.
Working with his wife, Katie, who owns a beauty salon, Ogden looks to turn a derelict building in Stockport’s Lower Hillgate area into the Bohemian Arts Club.
The center will have cocktail bars on the first and second floors, while the Bohemian hairdresser will be located on the ground floor.
Speaking to local newspaper The Manc, Ogden said: “We’ve been lucky enough to visit great bars around the world and it’s always been a dream of ours to open our own. When we found this lovely little venue in our hometown of Stockport, we knew we had found a gem.”
“Renovating the venue has been a long process, but we’re getting there and in 2023 we’ll open the doors and we’re looking forward to welcoming everyone in for a drink or two,” he continued.
At the moment, the bar doesn’t have a launch date beyond “early 2023”, but fans can subscribe to the Bohemian Arts Club website to stay up-to-date on its opening plans.
Blossoms have just finished a massive tour of the UK and Ireland in support of their fourth studio album “Ribbon Around The Bomb”.
Performing at the Brixton Academy, the group were joined on stage by Spice Girls’ Mel C and Rick Astley, while in Manchester, Blossoms teamed up with The Courteeners’ Liam Fray for ‘Not Nineteen Forever’ and ‘Please Don’ t’.
Blossoms have also confirmed the details of two massive concerts for next summer. The band will play Stockport Castlefield Bowl in Manchester on July 6, 2023 and Leeds Millennium Square on July 8, 2023.
Opening for the Manchester concert will be the reunited Inspiral Carpets, with Miles Kane supporting the group in Leeds. Tickets are on sale now.
